A place where you will be very well treated. You can choose between a dedicated gourmet service or a buffet in one different room. All the food treated with care. A very good gourmet restaurant away from the big cities.

Seemingly in a class above anything else surrounding, this humble regional restaurant is more likely something a visitor might experience in large, cosmopolitan city - not in a small village among the modestly magnificent and rugged countryside southeast of Guarda, Portugal. Even the twisty, winding...More

Located in Casteleiro, very close to the Serra da Estrela and next to one of the most beautiful historical villages of Portugal, Sortelha, the Casa da Esquila is a privileged space for Food, Wine, and other sins...Based on the concept Rural Gourmet, the offer of the Casa da Esquila is enhanced by the fantastic natural resources that the region has, which combined with the rich culture and culinary tradition, complemented by experience professionals make the table of the Esquila, a must, because as someone said, this is probably one of the best table in Serra da Estrela and “Beiras”.Specialities :Meat of outstanding quality, fish with traditional fragrances, vegetables and fruits from organic production, regional sausages, cheeses and many other national reference products with an transcendent flavor. All this combined with a season menu based on tree themes.(Farmer, Regional, Gourmet w/ Signature)
