We stopped for lunch on the main square in Serpa, above a nice café. The small Serpa cheese was very good, as was the Bohemia Sagres beer that went with it. My boyfriend tried the garlic soup which was quite heavy and greasy for a lunch when it's hot outside. Would've been perfect during winter though, the taste was nice.... More

One of the best restaurants I've ever been. Extraordinary food and wine, with a great service! Located in the city centre, with good accessibility.

This is a real and reliable restaurant, serving typical food from Alentejo. Alentejo has very specific dishes that need good ingredients and know-how. Not fancy, just really good food.

I had the amazing opportunity to visit this upscaled restaurante while I was spending some vacation times back home, in Serpa. First of all, let me warn you folks that I am trying not be too biased here, so please consider my review as a non-local. Knowing what the region has to offer, and having been in almost all all...

We ate here and had a really lovely meal. The restaurant had a cafe on the ground floor and a restaurant above on the 1st floor which is where we had our meal. It was busy with Portugese families out for Saturday evening, which we thought was a good indication of the food and service. I had a delicious fish... More

A brightly-lit one-room restaurant on one of the main squares in Beja and one of the few that was open on a Sunday evening and had any other customers, all of them Portuguese. The menu is extensive, which usually means indifferent cooking, but our dishes of rabbit and lamb were well cooked and large, even in half portions. I was... More

I can honestly say that I LOVE eating at O Alentejano! The food is delicious! The first time I went, I ordered the "Carne de Porco A Alentejana" and I just fell in love! The meat was so juicy smothered in a delcious, rich sauce of Portuguese herbs and spices. It also came with yummy claims and flavorful french fries.... More
