Is a third visit and is all perfect. The wine, and a bochecha de porco preto is my favorite. I recommend and I returned all the time when I can.

Wanted to come to this restaurant but it's always busy. Booked by hotel receptionist for a dinner at 8pm. We had black port cheeks as main course which was very nice taste and tender, plus starters and a bottle of red local "EA" wine, water and coffee, around €53 for two, which was cheap. Thanks for the delicious dinner, will... More

Great feel to this family restaurant and friendly, knowledgeable service from Louis the waiter. We started with two local dishes, seared sausages which came with a sort of mash and greens ( like Colcannon) which was very savoury and tasty. My fresh asparagus with scrambled egg was too mild to compete. For mains we shared the lamb roasted in the... More

Went on recommendation of women who rented bus tours. Very impressed. We had veal and cannelloni. Waiter recommended rose which we did not like, feel like we should have known better. Still a positive experience

The restaurant is located in the heart of Evora which is very magical. Lots of little alleys and squares. The staff was very welcoming and happy to explain the typical dishes of the region and offer suggestions. There was a very lively energy among the dinners - a mix of tourists and locals.

We visited here at the recommendation of the hotel. We had a nice lunch of two fish dishes two soup of the day. The fish portions we got were huge. Two monkfish steaks and a sea bass. Ask how much fish the special is. We probably could have ordered one.

Spacious and smooth ambiance hands in hands with the best regional food. Excellent service, excellent wine and a good price for the package. Surely one of the best leverage of price and quality in Évora

Had a business lunch with a large group and very good food from the Alentejo region was served. The room has a very interesting decoration and creates a nice atmosphere, though with little natural light. Service was quite efficient for a group of such dimension (ca 25 participants) and food was aof very good quality and cooked 'au point'. Apart... More

The best food in Evora! Very delicious starters and desserts. Excellent wine. Ask for a recomendation. Sometimes you can taste a few wines and make your choice. Friendly staff. The prices are not low, but it is worth the money.

Thank MJ B
