Tiny but perfectly formed!

A very convivial experience to eat at the bar here, and some of the best food in Portugal! Just follow the friendly owner's recommendations - for wine too - and you will not be disappointed. Unique!

A friend recommended us to go at this restaurant while we where in Evora. We were lucky since when we arrived at 8:30, a couple was just leaving and we could take the last spot available (since there is just 9 spots in total). We simply had the best experience ever at this place. The owner and his wife were... More

Hard to find but worth it. We were lucky on our only day here to get the last 2 stools in this resto which only has 9-10 places at the counter. It's sort of like a sushi bar in Japan. The affable owner serves you each dish personally and makes you feel very special which is part of the charm... More

If you are looking for typical food from Alentejo and you are near by, you have to go to "Botequim da Mouraria". Just one advice, be there at 19:00 for dinner, if you go later you might see the place overbooked and will have to come another day. That happen with me, but I have no regret because it was... More

The smallest Tapas bar in the world seating only 10 customers! Excellent wines and delicious snacks. There's also a main meal menu. The best almond and hazelnut cake ever and I don't eat puds! A must in Evora?

It is a small place where you sit at the bar to eat. The food is fantastic and authentic and you have a great selection of local wine. Let the owner guide you in your choices and have a typical alentejano meal. Well worth it!

Great place: food and hosts. It's a different experience but so worth it. The owner is the server and his wife cooks. Delicious homemade food. There were locals who seem to eat there regularly waiting to be seated. Here's a tip: arrive a few minutes before the restaurant opens in other to be seated quickly. I really enjoyed taking my...

The food is OK but overpriced for Portugal. If wine is suggested ask for the price otherwise you will be surprised at the end as a tourist.

You have to be lucky to have availability in this restaurant. It is not a typical restaurant since you do not have tables, but a counter with no more room than for 10 people. You have to try all the typical small dishes from this unique and different place.

We tried twice to get a seat at this place, as it is really tiny (9 persons) and they don't make reservations. Domingos and Florbela own the restaurant and make you feel you were invited to their home, as he suggests the best options and she cooks in front of you. It was really worth it, Domingos was a great... More
