Incredibly warm service from every member of the staff and authentic, superlative wine and typical Alentejano cuisine. What more could you possibly ask for?

Authentic Portuguese Alentejo cooking. Best pork beef I have had ever. Friendly staff. Alentejo cooking at it's best. Not for ketchup lovers.

Fantastic food, great service. We would not have expected such a great food in this little town, but we got positively surprised. The restaurant is rather small and located on a side road. But the food spoke for,itself. We had cod fish soup with bread.../ eggs and roast beef with rice. Both were fantastic. Highly recommendable. One recommendation: beware, the 1/2 portion is still pretty large and can be enough for 2 persons!More

The restaurant is small and it was full of people, it was Sunday and there not too many other options nearby. So, we decided to wait to get a table. The staff was not really friendly but the service was fast and the food was...ok. We really enjoyed the lagartos de porco, very tender and tasty. However, the migas alentejanas with pork where flavorless and needed to be marinated for much more time and the veal was really tough, dificult to cut and eat. We comment this two things to the waiter who didn't like our feedback and did nothing to solve it.More

Only for the dinner, just call to the restaurant. For lunch, you should go there before in person to get a ticket.
