An excellent place to taste the diverse typical gastronomy of Alentejo. Friendly service and very well prepared dishes.

The food was ok but not the best we had in Alentejo and the service was average. We expected more from the restaurant. The bill came with one bottle of water by mistake and after we complaint the waitress didn't even apologize.

We were eating here as a half board arrangement with our accommodation. We ate here for 3 nights and we put ourselves entirely in the hands of the charming waitress. She had prepared the most delicious starters - soft cheese walnuts, little salads of beans, or chicken, palma ham, local bread, etc every night. We asked her to choose a... More

The positive things I found were: the atmosphere and the interior design, the owner was extremely nice, and the entrees were very good although expensive. The not so positive things: the main courses were just ok so not worth the price, the deserts were generally poor (some, like the chocolate mousse, were not even home made), and the waitress was...

Loved the "Migas de tomate" and for desert "Pastel de toucinho" which is typical of Arraiolos. I had read some posts about the waiting time but we were OK. It probably helped that we were the first ones there (19:30) and went on a week night.

The best place in Arraiolos to eat and have a taste of the good Aletejana Cuisine! The decor is rustic, bucolic and perfect for the atmosphere. The staff is nice. The only negative point is the price: as they are a known restaurant in the vicinities, they push up on the prices! But somehow it is worth!
