There is a Pousada in Marvão, inside the castle walls. It is situated on one of its narrow cobbled streets. It is possible to visit and to use their bar/ restaurant, which has fabulous views over Marvão's surroundings.
We've visited Marvão both in Winter and Summer. Winters are cold in this area of Portugal, contrasting with dry and hot summer. In both seasons we've been to the Pousada, enjoying a nice warm tea or a fresh natural orange juice. The Pousada is not the cheapest option in Marvão, but quality of service and location justify it.
This restaurant in Santo António das Areias near Marvão is well worth a visit if you are going to this area.
You can eat outside in the courtyard or in the trendy modern interior.
We had a fabulous meal and the owners were so friendly, they were celebrating a birthday and offered the guests a glass of champagne. We will definitely return.
Favorite Dish: Don't miss the prawns in beer sauce or the pork and plums.
Great with a bottle of Chamine Vinho Tinto (red wine).
THere is not much to do in Marvao on an average day but walk around. When tired take a look at local tavernas. There is probably two or three of them.
We sat in ne with nice view and cold beer :-)
I don't remember the name of the place but if you look at the pictures you will be able to find it. After all, Marvao is a tiny town.
Favorite Dish: We just had cold beer and ice cream, but the menu looked good.
Just downhill a bit from the Tourist Information centre, which is located very close to the amazing village garden, we had spotted a small bar/cafe. By the time we had toured the walls and towers of the castle, it was 4:30 and we had worked up a good thirst.
A very pleasant young lady working at the inside bar took our order of beer and vinho verde (there were hardly any other customers), and kindly brought it to our outside table. We were very happy to have found this beautiful spot under a spreading tree with a view out over the village! We had an enjoyable time winding down and reflecting on the days events before we were off on our final dash to find accommodations in Castelo Branco.
This great restaurant is the restaurant from the beautiful hotel Albergaria El-Rei Dom Manuel.
It is very well localized with a great view and the food is just great.

I want to thanks its owner Tiago who remember me the name of the restaurant

Favorite Dish: My favorite dishes are the ones with black pork.
the roasted chicken of Zé Calha is famous in the region. There are a lot os spanish that cross the nearby border to come and have lunch there.
Enjoy the wonderful views of the surrounding at this restaurant, while enjoying Portuguese cuisine and an excellent wine list.
Favorite Dish: Very good traditional continental Portuguese cuisine.
