Description: Description: Since 1974, Chanquinhas in Leca da Palmeira, housed in a former manor house is distinguished by the quality of the food and the wine list quite complete. A sophisticated and refined space where luxury is not, however, synonymous with elitism. A tastefully decorated, concerned with the cult of detail. Old palace, it still keeps some traits reminiscent of the recent past that gives this restaurant a certain aura, decor aside, prevails as the reference for its traditional cuisine, restaurant where the flavors of Portugal are present in each dish!

Wonderful food; excellent but discreet service; beautiful historic building; remarkable value. I'd heard it was good, but didn't expect it to be this good.

this restaurant is visited by me about once every month. Definitivly one of the best restaurants on Oporto area. The entrees ara superb. Please ask for " pimentos padron"
and mushroons. The main course list is very large and all the traditional Portuguese cuisine can be found every day.The quality of the food is unbeatable !!!
The dessert is based on good sweets and fruit of excelente quality.
The car parking is exclusive.
The restaurant is in a first floor of a small manor house ,Nice atmosphere.

We were recommended O Chanquinhos by a very good Portuguese friend, whose trusted palate did not disappoint. We accepted the offer of an aperitif in the quaintest of Ante-rooms, chilled white Port while we looked at the menu. The fish was superb, every piece we had. My less adventurous sons simple steak was also a little piece of heaven on a plate. Faced with a bewildering choice of Douro wines of which I knew nothing, I accepted the aged Maitre d's offer of the House White; Montes Emos was excellent at €10/btl, like a crisp St. Veran. The setting and service were faultless the latter unintrusive but ever present. A memorable and very pleasant evening.
