Fodor's Expert Review Tromba Rija
One of Portugal's most famous restaurants, this longtime shrine to traditional cuisine has set up shop in a leafy setting across from the Batalha Monastery. From Friday dinner through Sunday lunch, guests serve themselves from a long table where around 100 regional appetizers are set out in clay pots. Mains might includerabbit confit or roast bacalhau. During the week the servers come to you.
