This restaurant is located in the Quadrado, the main square of Trancoso with lots of restaurants and nice shops.
The atmosphere of the restaurant is really nice, and the food is really good with a good selection. Service is also very professional. It’s a bit expensive, so not for a cheap night out.

Thank Gianangel

As recommended, i went to El Gordo seeking for incredible food. And found it. I had an amazing fish fillet with banana da terra risotto, delicious combination and harmony. The restaurant is a pleasant place to be, the staff is friendly and helpful. It is definitely worth the price.

So, we should should have read the review first. It's a fancy place, with a great view (that you can't see at night) so go during the day. But as you can tell from the photo, they obviously need to work on plating presentation...because the dense, disgusting "Belgium chocolate mousse" we ordered for almost 30 Reis, looked like sh**. What a disaster. Also, there was a guy complaining at the bar about them not having any vodka. All in all, food is outrageously expensive and bland...and presented like the chef just gave up. At least my boyfriend and I had a good laugh...but yea, we won't eat at this place again.

The restaurant is very nice with good food. We had "bacalhau" and it was good, but nothing special. The place is beautiful and the tables are all around the pool. The prices were expensive and I would probably try to go there during the day because people say the view are worth it.
