Reservation necessary, as in most Milfontes good restaurants. Prices are on the average but service is very good, employees very helfull. The "Feijoada de Buzios" and "Migas com carne de porco" were underfull. To repeat.

If you like to eat, then this is a must go restaurant, the food it’s just amazing. Had eggs and “linguiça” for starter, which is a traditional dish in Alentejo. For mais course we tried the skewer calf and the “patio” steak. No words. Unbelievable...meat, really well cooked. We’ve paid 45€ with house wine and water. Strongly recommended.More

Had the Best lunch at patio alentejano. Really Nice sangria tinto, the Best fried shrimps I’ve ever put in my mouth! The sauce and the shrimps were so good, that we’ve talked about Them to everybody we know and would love love love to eat...again. The Black pork starter was really Nice aswell. Had the polvo for maincourse which was really good. Limemousse for dessert could definiately use some more lime to it, but the starters (have to mention the shrimps again) and the maincourse was beautiful.More

We visited in late September, on the recommendation from our accommodation host. The food was excellent, portions - huge. I Ordered a half portion on the kind recommendation from our waiter, while my Partner insisted on getting the "normal" size and was not able to...finish his meal. Our waiter was extremely friendly, helpful and made us feel at easy by speaking perfect English because obviously our Portuguese was non existent. Food was fresh and delicious. It got busy pretty quickly, so I guess try to get there as soon as it opens for the evening service! Would recommend this place for anyone visiting Vila Nova de Milfontes.More

We dropped by here last night at the suggestion of the Tourist Information clerk in town. A comfortable place, we had made a reservation, but the resto was almost empty at 7:30. By 8:00 the place was humming, with locals and tourists. Our waiter spoke...reasonable English, and was helpful in wine selection. My wife had been yearning to ty the Clam and Pork dish, a traditional Portuguese plate, and this was the night. This variation included shrimps, and had roast potatoes and some picked veggies, which were a great touch. We got the serving to feed two, and it was very generous. The pork was tender, with little fat, the clams were moist and tasty and the generous portion of shrimp were cooked perfectly. Service, ambiance and the experience were all good, and the bill at 30 Euros made for an excellent outcome.More

I came here for dinner, restaurant was quite full, waiters seemed to be much mor interested in football in tv than guests. I had pork with clams and prawns, pork was very dry, potatoes very greasy, clams and prawns good. Wine quite nice

Lovely popular restaurant. A notch above. We went twice and each time the service was genuine and kind. Make reservations as this restaurant fills up with Portuguese as well as tiurists

Beautiful place with tasty and homemade food. Cozy restaurant always full with enormous dishes. Try the bacalhau, it is very good. Be aware to schedule in advance.
