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!

There are restaurants that truly are an Institution! With a fine and traditional service you won't find in a restaurant nowadays (special in the news wannabes') along with truly authentic portuguese food this is one of the few restaurants in which I can truly feel at home. Amazing people, exquisite athmosphere and great service.

Thought we would have a miserable last dinner in a soulless hotel close to Porto airport but found this gem. Waiter was very pleased to practice his English and told us everthing was a speciality of the region and the house. I had the best calamari of our holiday with a great selection of vegetables. Looking forward to our next visit.

This restaurant is set in an old manor style house with a very traditional décor. It is quite spacious inside and has a room that may be used for more private groups. It has a wide selection of dishes, all of excellent quality. It has a good selection of wines too. Everything is top rated but with top quality comes expensive pricing, although well worth it! Highly recommendable!

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.

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.
