Just near Oeiras’ post office, this unpretentious small restaurant delivers all the flavors of Alentejo, offering various delicious entries and several options for the main courses. The prices are reasonable (20-35€/person, drinks included) and service is very good. We got açorda de gambas and arroz de tamboril: both delicious and abundant amount of seefood. We had been here before and surely will return. Made a notice that Saturday’s they serve wild boar, need to taste that!
Thanks for the good service. Better to reserve a place beforehand! You will not be disappointed!

Great food, place and staff. Simple gestures make all the difference - like just helping us by noting that 3 dishes is normally enough for 4 person... Not that common these days!

Make sure you book a table at Ze Varunca, as it has many loyal followers from near and far. Try the lamb (borrego), the migas (bread pudding) with ribs, the fish rice, the... I think I loved every dish I tried. Make sure you pick some of the starters they will bring you, or you can keep the whole platter if you have a group. Desserts!! If you still have room, get the encharcada ... yum. If not, make room :)

We were looking for a supermarket and noticed this small restaurant tucked away in a side street and gave it a try.
This must be one of the best restaurants in the area serving traditional local dishes,fabulous starters served tapas style,a good reasonable wine list and a host of home made puds.
Do try and book because they seem to be always busy[mainly locals].
Not to be missed

This was the forth time I've been to this restaurant with friends, and decided that had enough information to write down a review. This restaurant serves traditional Portuguese food from Alentejo and the quality is 5 stars. I loved everything I tried so far but definitely recommend without hesitation the 'acorda de camarão' and the 'Masada de peixe'. The service is also 5 stars and the place is cozy and comfortable. The portions they serve are generous and the prices are perfectly fine given the overall quality of the service. It became one of my favorite restaurants in the Lisbon area and I will definitely go there again!
