Fabulous!

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

Trip Advisor rates this no 1 so my husband and I thought we would go there for dinner tonight. We checked and it does not offer bookings so we arrived there at 7pm at the scheduled opening time. To our surprise the restaurant was already full and we had to find somewhere else to go at short notice. We would... More

I echo all the rave reviews of other diners as written here, and marvel at the simplicity and earnestness of the restaurant owner in attending to our requests. He was very helpful in suggesting food, portions were large, and wine delicious. A great find indeed!

Sr. Domingos, the owner, decided what would be the best food for my husband and I to eat. So we decided to relax and enjoy. He gave us melted cheese with "black" prosciuto and fresh fig for appetizer. I had "carne assada" and my husband a delicious fish, and awesome Portuguese wine. Ate dessert with delicious coffee. This is a... More

The wait is worth it - this tiny restaurant has very simple but tasty food - but it is the "performance" and charm of the host, as much as the food that makes for a memorable evening. We sat around the bar, with a capacity of 10, and had cued from about 6:20 pm to ensure a spot. Our host... More

The food is very, very good. But in my opinion it is more about the whole dining experience and it is the reason why I give a five star rating. We enjoyed visiting with other hopeful diners while waiting for the restaurant to open and then visiting with others while seated at the bar. The service was excellent by wonderful... More
