We had an excellent dinner in Casa Velha. The staff was helpful and very nice and the food was great. We had fresh codfish fried fillet with cockle rice, it was fantastic. The white wine sangria was very good and also the desert was tasty. If you are in Lousã go have dinner here, you won't regret.

Dishes are just the right quantity, enough and very tasteful. With some great wines, you can enjoy a truly tasteful meal. All the desserts are worth a try, specially the mousse de queijo da serra, a superb, delicious mousse made with one of Portugal's best...MoreThanks for your review! We were very pleased that you enjoyed the experience in our restaurant. We hope see you soon. Best regards!

Welcome to A ESTRELA DA MÓ! The restaurant opened in May 31th, 2008, in Vila nova de Poiares, with the purpose to combine the traditional food, taste and personalize service. Our restaurant has a high standard service and a top quality menu and it can be prepared to any event planed in advance. "A Estrela da Mó" is a family business and is surrounded by a comfortable and rural ambient, with a room for 85 person. This establishment is one of the oldest in the village, it's been always know has "A Mó". When the restaurant open, i've decided to keep the name and add my mother's name, ESTRELA, becoming the name that everybody knows these days. All of our specialties have a great meaning, for example the barbecue chicken "Armandito" is dedicated to my father, because he worked on the grill in another restaurant about 30 years. Other specialties are the "Naco na Telha", a tender peace of veal meat on the grill, "Bacalhau á Estrela da Mó", "Bacalhau on the Corn Bread" and the regional "Chanfana". Along this years we have been awarded with some prizes, for example the "Best Chanfana 2012" by the Confraria da Chanfana, in 2013 we've got a "Honor Medal " at the national competition "Melhor Arroz de Portugal" (best rice in Portugal), and later in that year we got to the final of Schweppes Challenge, with a Gin and tonic with Red Fruit and wild Berry's , and now it's a apart of the history, so it's always available for our clients. In 2014 we've won the "Melhor Arroz de Portugal" with a Rice of Mushroom's and Wild Rabbit that we have on our menu, pre order hour before so we can prepare with more love.
This is probably the restaurant with the better service and atmosphere in the area, still remaining very informal and unpretentious.
The dishes are elaborated and well presented. Generous portions though.
Prices are higher than in neighbouring restaurants, but still very reasonable.
Our steak was tender, but too cooked, although we asked to have it 'rare'.
One of the two dinners we had there we also tried the cataplana, which was very nice, abundant in fish and shellfish, shrimps, crabs and one lobster. I recommend to try it even of the sea is far away..

Good food, near the center with traditional portuguese cuisine at a cheap price. Had a very good codfish. Check the daily options with the waiter and try the portuguese wine.

Experimentei ir a este restaurante, pela primeira vez, num almoço de família e achei simplesmente maravilhoso. Adorei tudo o que comi. Experimentámos a picanha (das melhores, se não a melhor que já comi), o ensopado de enguias que estava delicioso e, por fim, o arroz de miscaros super rico, cheio de sabor lembrando o Outono num prato. O atendimento esteve à altura da comida e todo o espaço. Irei voltar certamente.

Roadside family restaurant with simple, delicious and inexpensive Portuguese food. I personally recommend the sarrabulho, the roasted piglet and the Portuguese stew.
The staff is very friendly and the service is fast. Keep in mind that in the weekend you might need to wait 10-15 minutes for a table, but it's worth it.

With an experience acquired throughout 60 years, the restaurant "As Medas" it's one national and international reference in chicken barbecue. Being that the enormous quality of its meals also makes of it a reference in the Portuguese traditional kitchen. Come visit us and have a unique food experience
We have been going to this restaurant most weeks for about 5 years.
That in itself should say how we like it.
The truth is that the choice in this area is not that good.
However although the chickens they serve have got smaller they still cook them perfectly.
This restaurant has made its name by selling a fair price chicken piri piri. But you should also try the fantastic Salteadas and the Bucho.
Hope to see you there soon.
