Three vegetarian options, and not that great. Average food in an average place. Staff is not friendly, and they play a bit with the fact there are no many choices in Marvão for having dinner.

This place looks fancy coming in, and we sat down expecting a good meal. They brought the wrong soup to my friend. The soup I had was just garlic and salt. They were accommodating in allowing me to switch one of the main dishes out...More

A place with a breath-taking view over Alentejo planes. The staff were helpful but, due to several unfortunate mistakes, the meals ended up not being that pleasant.

We had dinner here 3 times and it was always really good. Typical regional kitchen, good open wines for a really fair price. The service was most attentive and friendly. Nice panoramic view over the valley. Can recommend it warmly.

Did not have a lot of choice unfortunately but it looked very nice. Unfortunately we were bitterly disappointed. Service was OK but food was below average. It was really expensive for what we had. Would not go there again.
