In the words of the Portuguese ambassador, Francisco Seixas da Costa, who recently had a memorable meal at DeRaiz, in the surroundings of Viseu, the world should know that you will eat heavenly in this restaurant at very affordable prices. In fact, a challenging gastronomic experience that you will never forget. This is truly an "impossible" restaurant. Too good to be true!
The couple of young Chefs Inês Beja and Nuno Fonte decided to open a charming restaurant in a cosy village near Viseu called De Raiz. A unique family-like place that pays homage to traditional granny recipes that passed from generation to generation.
The name of the restaurant reveals its very essence. "Raiz" means root and it's all about recovering old recipes with that special touch of author cuisine. Traditional flavours along with high-quality regional products. The Chefs are driven everyday by the dream of awakening the past through their gastronomic creations, combining them with an exquisite wine selection of Dão wine region.
As we enter restaurant De Raiz, we see an ancient recipe book that belonged to a wise granny. A journey across cooking memories and unforgettable specialities. This is the soul of De Raiz. A tribute to the past with eyes on the future.
