Outstanding service, food and location. That was our first time to experience the typical dogfish soup and me were happy to have our first experience here. Friendly and welcoming. It is good to make a reservation upfront.

The local family that runs the restaurant is very friendly and helpful. The lamb we had for lunch was very good with a generous portion. The wine was OK.

Great local food! Must try the grilled black pork, incredible! Flavorful and tender. Taste the local wine-great price and smooth flavor. Wife enjoyed the candied plum on her custard dessert, everything grown and made there-delicious!

Thoroughly enjoyed my lunch. I had the grilled sausage (flaming tableside!), codfish bras was good also. WiFi was spotty - but hey, I was there for the food!

Visit this wonderful small village and go to Cass do Forno for a great lunch. Very good local soup and the lamb stew type dish was excellent.

We had the lamb and it was well prepared. The bread, soup and salad were good, nothing spectacular. The wine was again good. Not a great restaurant from a food stand point, but the setting and the view make it well worth stopping at.

I enjoyed my lunch at the Casa do Forno. A nice choice in beautiful Monsaraz. The food was good, but nothing spectacular. Not the best meal during my vacation in Portugal, but certainly not bad at all. Good size portions. The service was a bit on the slow side at times, but it wasn't an issue. So I'd certainly recommend... More

Went to Monsaraz with a friend from Italy and wanted to show her some traditional dishes from Alentejo. The restaurant has a nice indoor area as well as a simple but refreshing outside area. The food is enough for the very hungry mouths and we had the bacalhau a bras and also the veal and pork meat which was all... More

We went to Casa do Forno to eat the traditional typical food. Inside the restaurant you have an old oven and outside there is a patio with a nice view to the sunset where we ate. You should not expect anything fancy, but the food was nicely prepared. You may find some typical dishes from Alentejo and also other more... More
