Established in the Quinta da Geia Boutique Hotel in Aldeia das Dez, Oliveira do Hospital, the João Brandão restaurant specializes in international flavours, but in a typical beirão setting. 
‘Chef Frenkel de Greeuw manipulates Portuguese ingredients masterfully. In his absence, Margarida Nunes, a resident cook for 12 years, takes over and introduces many of the regional dishes.

With chef Vasco Lello, she has developed an Espírito do Lugar Menu with a marked Portuguese character.The meal starts with escabeche of fish from the River Alva and Dez paté with citrus and walnut compote Next, a broth of trout from the same river with fennel from the hills surrounding the village. Kid, as the main course, is accompanied by corn bread crumbs and a classic herb sauce. For dessert, the choice was one of the house celebrities: tigelada, with plum confit and locally produced chestnut honey.

  

Menu 

  • Fish escabeche from the River Alva and Dez paté with citrus and walnut compote
  • Trout broth with mountain fennel
  • Roast kid with sautéed corn bread crumbs and herb sauce
  • Baked custard pudding (eggs, sugar, wheat flour, milk and cinnamon) with plum confit and chestnut honey
