Eating in Benedita
Remember this name
Great! Absolutely great!
Open for several decades as a restaurant for truck drivers and other drivers searching for a quick and cheap meal, this restaurant was converted, betting now in quality. In my last visit, it was perfect – originality, excellent taste, regular portions, kind service, and moderate prices.
Favorite Dish: Vitela na Pucara ( Veal in a pot – the cabbage… oh, the cabbage…), Bacalhau com Grão (Codfish), Mixed Grill
Address: IC2 or “Estrada Nacional 1” in Benedita
In the outskirts of Benedita, near IC2, I use it quite often for a family meal. It serves home made food, with good quality and a reasonable price. The only drawback is, in the most “familiar” days, the noise of excited kids.
Favorite Dish: Posta Mirandesa
Bacalhau à Lagareiro
Address: Charneca Casal do Guerra Phone: 262929936
Directions: IC2, from south, after Venda das Raparigas, and the turns to Benedita, about km 83.5 turn right (signposted)
Family or business
Located in IC2, a few kilometers south of town, and close to Venda das Raparigas, this is a very interesting restaurant for a reasonable meal well priced. The food respects Portuguese traditions and is well elaborated.
Trying to attract people passing by, it is also a restaurant were people go expressly to a trustful lunch or dinner.
The decoration, following the “traditional” pattern is discreet and well conceived.
