Great place. We went on our first night in Evora but an half hour before it was open more people were waiting than there were chairs available. So we went the next night even earlier. Of course we waited with another couple and no line up to get in. So take your chances of arriving early or not. Best food... More

Exceptional experience. 45 minute wait outside the local (the pair of Canadian tourists with whom we waited told us that the night before, arrived 15 minutes before the opening, there was already a line outside...). Why? 9 seats, sitting on high stools at the counter behind which the very nice and friendly owner that makes the rules and makes you... More

Very small restaurant (8 people can sit at the bar). Host is friendly and helpful, food is tasty, great choice of Portuguese wines, you really enjoy your meal. Definitely worth waiting to have a seat ;-)

Such a wonderful warm welcome from the host and the food is ---all about the ingredients. The husband and wife team works hard all night to please the guests, and deserves the high praise it gets.

Incredible experience. Service and presentation are fantastic and the food is prepared so, so well. Regional tastes that let the ingredients shine through. Owners are really kind and make the experience that much better. Highly recommend!!! For lunch or dinner don't come to Evora and not try here!!

I had never seen a 5 star restaurant with almost 400 reviews so we had to try it. Based on the reviews that mentioned no reservations and 10 seats total, we showed up for lunch with a party if 6 at 12:10 pm with a 12:30 on opening. The wait is well worth it! We let the owner guide us... More

Arrived the evening prior and was full, came back the next day and arrived at 6 with my partner. The restaurant can only hold 9-10. In short the guy raised his hands in dispair that 11 people were waiting outside. Regardless of waiting an hour (and one of the first)he let the locals in first (some of whom arrived 5... More
