The Quadrado seems to be the place to be in Trancoso. There are numerous restaurants and bars and some has live music. It kind of feel like a magical place at night. I would definitely check it out if you're in Trancoso.

The name Quadrado is a symbol of the good life of Trancoso. The village meets there, specially the tourists. Restaurants, Art Galleries, Boutiques etc all in one place dominated by a little white church. After 6 pm is when the action begins. Don’t miss.
