It was perfect in every way! From the bread in the beginning, to the delicious roast piglet and the amazing sparkling wine. Everyone was really friendly and the restaurant was very inviting. Amazing lunch. I recommend 100%!

We came to this amazing restaurant and we're served by Ricardo Lopes who gave us the best service we received in our whole trip to Portugal! The food was amazing and the service was exceptional! You won't regret the trip to this historic restaurant!

This was my first time in the restaurant and the piglet is amazing. The service is very good and the piglet came straight from the oven, very tender and crisp. A must visit for piglet lovers and to all those that do not know yet that they love piglet.

Terrible experience in a restaurant area that has long been said for the good service and the quality of its main product - the bairrada pig. But it's true. We arrived at one of the best-known restaurants in Mealhada, Pedro dos Leitões, on January 1, 2017, around 7:00 p.m. and we had a huge disappointment. We came from the Rui... More

Excelente grilled piglet, good wine cellar, fair service and price. It's one of the best options for eating the region's typical grilled piglet .

I went for lunch, I did not visit this well known restaurant for some years. The piglet was top, soft and tasty, with a generous quantity. Chips were also great, but in a smaller quantity, we had to ask for a reinforcement and they charged for it!!! Home red champagne was also very good. Service by the ladies was quick... More

I never went to this place because I dont like suckling pig (leitao). Recently, I was forced by circumstances to have lunch there - oh man forget the suckling pig! They have this great menu with most traditional portuguese staples, and they are just amazing!! I managed to have dinner there again yesterday and it was just excellent, again! I... More
