Great place

Perfect place to have a family dinner, great staff and service, try the shark soup with the local red wine from the signature big vases. You will live it

The shabby entrance can be confused with other restaurants. Directly inside the wall is a bar. The walls here are filled with old radios. Further on is the restaurant with simple rectangular tables. Here you also find a large shelf on one wall filled with antiques. sorry to say, the personell does not take care of maintenance and purity of... More

This little quaint restaurant in the centre of Mourao is definitely worth visiting. When we were going down the hill, we heard a song and thanks to that we managed to find this charming place. As we entered, we saw a nice scene: old portuguese gentlemen were singing шт choir and drinking local vine and having so much fun. We... More

This is not a Italian restaurants, so no pizza in there. The food is Portuguese food, and it is good.

Reading other TripAdvisor contributors' positive comments, I decided to have dinner at this place. It was on a Tuesday evening. Already from the street, we heard very loud voices arguing quite harshly. When we entered the restaurant, we saw in the first room, some kind of a bar, a group of local elderly man in a quite violent oral dispute.... More

Charming place for an unhurried glass of wine and a bite to eat. Wine was delicious but the whole experience around it definitely worth recommending. It is a bit like a wine cellar and a restaurant. We didn't have a full meal there but it could be good too. Lovely place with an old-fashioned vibe and authentic food and wine.... More

One of the best restaurants I have ever experienced! The environment is typical and genuine with a lot of old stuff making part of the decor. For me is simply the best restaurant in Alentejo! And the food? Not much to say...amazing, full of flavor...traditional...local ingredients...top quality! I tried the "Sopa de Cação" (local fish soup), "Cozido de Grão" (chickpea... More

It's all about the hole experience! The traditional music | singing... the wine coming directly from the huge containers, the owner who treats you as a long time friends... and the food is so authentic! It's far away from everything but the region is beautifull... Definitely a must go!
