Having not reserved as we did not know our arrival time, we waited 40 minutes on Tuesday lunch (not a holiday!). Just take house special - fantastic – we saw at least 9 roasted pigs cut and served whilst we waited. The pig was superb, tender and juicy, with crisp skin. The home-made crisps and salad were also appealing.

We were a huge group of 30 people and had reserved earlier to come for lunch. We started with the classic caldo verde soup to open our appetites. A fish dish of cod garnished with vegetables followed but the pièce de résistance was the famous crispy roasted suckling pig which was served carved in pieces accompanied by a special sauce of three kinds of pepper. Needless to say this is the best suckling pig we have tasted by far, beating those in Madrid and other places. We were spoiled by choices of the dessert and coffee. We had difficulty communicating with the waitresses at first but we all warmed up when we found out one spoke perfect French. After the meal, we were treated to a visit of their ovens, their small slaughterhouse where the piglets are inspected first by a vet and explanations on the preparations, the type of wood used, etc. It was truly a fantastic lunch and visit. Unforgettable not only for the quality of the food but also for the service and reception a large group such as ours got. This restaurant deserves not just 5 but a galaxy of stars!

Never had such a delicious pig meal, the meat so tender, the skin crisp and thin as a paper, the salad and the potato chips are a nice complement, wonderful service, and on top of that, Paulo took us to the kitchen and ovens and explained how everything is done. Worth the rent a car and drive to Mealhada.

We were at Pedro some thirty years ago and remembered with fondness a fantastic meal. We were a little uneasy at finding a completely new establishment, very large, modern and crowded. However we immediately recognized the quality of the old time. Nice waiters and waitresses, quick service, piglet we'll never forget, very good spumante, reasonable price. Hope to visit again soon!
