Mandatory visit! Won't say anything else - just visit the Merceary, and if you're lucky, reserve a table and enjoy a fusion of the new techniques with the best regional tastes.

It's unusual to find such a trendy eatery in an Alentejo town. It has a great atmosphere and you sit surrounded by racks of wine and attended by young, friendly and enthusiastic staff. The food was excellent with unusual choices but all beautifully cooked and presented. Great choice of wine, reasonably priced. We loved the place. When we came to... More

We decided to stop in Estremoz for lunch and this was the place that Tripadvisor indicated for us. We didn't try the wine, but the food is excellent. We had "Nosso Bacalhau", "Bife Da Casa" and "Arroz Cremoso de Cogumelos". The Bacalhau and Bife were amazing, the rice was good. But we totally recommend the place. Friendly staff and good... More

Second time we've eaten in this great Estremoz restaurant. The food is excellent, especially the desserts (as good as I've had anywhere) and the wine list is fantastic with a huge range of Alentejo wines in particular.

We always feel like we are at home when we have a meal at the Gadanha Mercearia. Michelle Marques and her team are truly amazing. A place not to miss when you find yourself in Estremoz.

It was just a last minute lunch engagement that came through, and no place available I was aware of to hold the meeting. A lady at the hotel I was staying at told me about this place, a town where she lived nearby, and I was very, very happy she directed me there. It is right on the old, historic... More

We loved this restaurant so much that we returned the next day! The food is produced with great ingredients and attention to detail. Everything in the menu was great from the delicious lamb croquettes with garlic aiolli to the creative "mille feuilles" made from thin slices of Alentejo bread, codfish and black pork prosciutto. And the desserts! A chocolate extravaganza... More

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at this small, simple place. Francis, the chef, is just amazing in her way of re-visiting local recipes: the flavours were always so balanced, but each of them very well perceivable. One dish was just heaven: presa do porco preto, cooked at the chef's judgment (I think it was a medium). Wine... More

The Good: the restaurant is very cozy with a modern decor, the menu has a mix of traditional plates with some revisited versions. The starter (mushrooms) and one of the dishes we selected (lamb) were very good. Part of the staff was extremely nice and friendly. The Bad: one of the dishes we selected, unfortunately mine, was very unsavory -... More

We stopped in for a "quick" lunch break, discovered a top class place with delicious specialties (the "foi gras" is supreme!) and an extensive, very extensive wine offering. The idea of quick dissolved... quickly. Lovely atmosphere, excellent service!
