We did not have a booking but it was early so we got a table for two. The waiter was arrogant and made us feel unwelcome. The food was average - we've had far better in a Evora at cheaper prices. Unusual for waiters in...More

Very good quality cooking delivered with friendly service. This cosy family-run restaurant proved to be a good recommendation from our hotel.

Rabbit was among the "covers" placed on the table without being ordered. Excellent! I had goat stew; unlike goat stews in the Caribbean, the meat here was all off the bone. Also wonderful. Add a $18 or so bottle of Alentejo red wine and you've...More

One of the best meal I have ever had in Portugal. I had cernie (fish) which was fresh as just coming from the sea and rice with sea fruits. Highly recommended.

We've owned goats but not eaten them. This place is the best to do the latter! Absolutely delicious -- tender and flavorful, cooked in olive oil with garlic and potatoes. Pork tenderloin great too. Rabbit starter crispy and wonderful. A little light on the greens,...More

The rabbit and the mushrooms to star were great. We then asked bochechas and they were a bit salty but the the wine helped a lot. Great lunch to justify that it is difficult to get bad food in Alentejo
