Adega Tia Matilde
This beautiful traditional restaurant first opened in 1926 and grew into a favorite spot with locals and families, as well as becoming a Michelin Guide Restaurant. Named after the first owner’s mother, Matilde, it started as a tasca (a small local place to eat) specializing in petiscos (Portuguese appetizers) but now offers a full menu with everything from fish and seafood dishes (anyone for grouper with clams, spinach, and rice?) to meats (roasted lamb is a rural favorite), soups, and even vegetarian options. Adega Tia Matilde is among the best-known and popular local spots off the beaten path near Praça de Espanha.
