This is one of those places where, after the first bite, you will hear your mom's voice echoing, “appearances can be deceiving”). Farol da Torre is located in Linda-a-Velha, in a low-ceilinged and, let's face it, rather uninteresting room. The food is the complete opposite: a great wild boar “sarapatel” stew, marinaded in young red wine and coagulated blood; a fine oven-roasted white veal spare rib with black-eyed pea crumbs; and, given that this is a Minho restaurant, they serve a great lamprey when in season.

Time Out tips:

– One of the city's best “cozidos”, served only on Thursdays (make a reservation).

– The best side dish? Chips.

– Save some room for their pavlova-style chocolate cake with red berries.
