O Moinante restaurant


FavoriteLoadingAdd to planner! ❤ Go to trip planner!

O Moinante restaurant is a very excellent regional restaurant on the Chamusca side of the Tagus river in the line between Santarem and Abrantes and roughly 10 km from the very charming town of Chamusca.

It’s in the village of Arrapiado next to an impressive and interesting manor farm house or as it is called in Portuguese ‘Quinta’ that dates, according to it’s gate, from 1896 and that is still in use. The village is build on the slopes of the Tagus river and has many interesting aspects starting with its historical village buildings and narrow roads and paths to the brand new boulevard on the Tagus shore, giving the possibility for modern points of views over the river, relaxation and leisure space.

It is close to the amazingly beautiful Almourol castle which stands tall on an island in the majestic Tagus river. Once the castle was a Templar stronghold that protected the North of Portugal from the Moorish invasions now it’s just a very romantic reminder that still looks very beautiful in the middle of this river.

The restaurant offers regional delicacies with a tendency towards fish dishes that find no equal in this district. The view reaches over the valley below and of-course the Tagus river, dominantly present in this area either as a deep watery collection of high rising sand banks in the summer or a sometimes fast moving water mass in winter.
The village is very pretty, old and quiet village

From the restaurant there is a possibility of taking a boat trip across the river to or from the Almourol castle and back and this is only for restaurant customers who will have lunch or diner in the restaurant for a very small fee.

O Moinante restaurant has many different interesting regional and national dishes but the ones we like the most is the Frigideira do Mar (pan of the sea) consisting of mixed plate of shellfish. octopus and squid for 2 people, Acorda de Gambas, a typical local dish served with large shrimp and the pepper stake made with 4 different peppers.

They do make specific vegetarian dishes but they must be ordered in advance.

The restaurant has nice decoration, very friendly owners, a great view and an interesting traditional menu worth taking a detour for or a vacation in the Ribatejo district of Portugal.
