GeoRestaurant ‘ Snacks and Granites’

Country: Portugal

“Petiscos & Granitos” (=‘ Snacks and Granites’), in Naturtejo UNESCO Global Geopark, is the first GeoRestaurant in Portugal and one of the first in the world. The restaurant is located in Monsanto, “the most Portuguese village in Portugal”, and was built between giant granite rocks. It is a family project focused on the space’s authenticity and in the GEO experience. The GeoRestaurant proposes a whole geotourism experience, with an amazing balcony that is a viewpoint over the main geomorphologic areas of Naturtejo Geopark. The menu includes traditional meals, mainly produced with local ingredients, such as the Red Bean Migas with Penha Garcia bread or the Cornstarch porridge and seasonal specialities such as asparagus with eggs. In addition to the space’s authenticity, the GeoRestaurante invites us to savour the landscape, with a GeoMenu that includes a “Barrocal Soup” or a “Lamb steak à Granitos”.
