    A capelinha do monte: Family business

    Capelinha do Monte - Caldas da Rainha

    I must confess that I was trying to find another restaurant in the square, that was closed, and, being late, I decided not to search any more and try this discreet restaurant below a simple facade.
    Well, it was what it seemed, a small familiar business. A middle aged woman in the kitchen, and a middle age man offering to the few costumers, a couple of common home made dishes. Not bad, nor remarkable - a simple and honest service, well done food, reasonably priced.

    Maratona: Big show

    by solopes Written Jun 25, 2014
    Hanging salads

    Once upon a time I had a dinner in this restaurant, and... forgot it.
    Later on, I heard that it had great reputation among locals. My fault?
    Recently, I've been in a party, catered by this restaurant. I was more careful observing everything, and could notice that they prepared a great performance, suitable to the garden and room where the party took place. Imagination and design were everywhere, since the edible earth, to the explosive chocolate cake, passing by the hanging salads in the trees and the smoking vegetable ice cream.
    Great show, indeed, but the tastes were not remarkable. Of course, everything was aimed to our eyes, more than the mouths, but the balance was far from perfection.
    I can't imagine the price, but it couldn't be cheap, and didn't add much to my idea (or absence of it) about their food.
    OK, one day I will return to the restaurant, and build a clear opinion.

    O Gordão: Just by the Park

    by solopes Updated Dec 30, 2013
    Caldas da Rainha - Portugal

    Very well located, by the park and the thermal complex, I didn't know this restaurant.

    Yesterday, I was there... and entered. A positive experience: The food was good, the service was nice, and the price reasonable. A place deserving a second visit.

    Favorite Dish: Shrimps with curry (usually done with rice, this time they used... tagliatelly, and the result was very interesting.

    Grilled pork with coriander

    O Selim: Familiar ambiance

    by solopes Written Oct 17, 2013

    Right in the centre of town, near the fruit market, this restaurant managed (and maybe owned) by a middle age couple, is a reasonable solution. The food is not outstanding, but it is good, with a homemade touch. My steak was tender and tasty, and the grilled skids of Fernanda "knew the secret", as she said, to a good sauce - the best olive oli. We paid 25 € for both meals, but the great surpreise was the lady's sympathy, treating the costumers as if they were... her grandsons. Clear and honest suggestions and explanations

    São Rafael: I recommend

    by solopes Written Feb 17, 2013
    Bordallo Pinheiro - Caldas da Rainha
    3 more images

    Integrated in a complex of the old factory of Bordallo Pinheiro, this restaurant is something easy to recommend.

    It is not a cheap place, neither a gourmet place, but it is a restaurant betting in quality and presentation, with warmful reception and very reasonable prices.

    Rafael Bordallo Pinheiro is a must in portuguese culture, and the father of the humoristic ceramics that are the image of Caldas da Rainha. The factory had many problems (I think that it is closed now) but the adjacent museum is still operational and may be visited by previous reserve.

    Booking a visit and a lunch will be a very interesting idea.

    Mazagran: Quiet bar

    by solopes Updated Aug 23, 2012
    Mazagran - Caldas da Rainha
    1 more image

    For a calm drink, or a light snack Mazagran is a good place, in the centre of the city. Youth dominates, as expected, but the music is soft and the ambiance "civilized" enough to please costumers of all ages.
    It has a wide animation program, from art exhibitions to live music.
