“Good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

This is a small restaurant in centre of Evora. We had great food here and although we can understand some of the comments on perhaps a lack of atmosphere we had an excellent evening and they even mended my broken shoe!!!!

“Best food in Evora, but”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

It's the best food you can get in Evora. However quite often the bill will destroy the fine dinning experience. I've spent a couple of time around 100€ per person. Kind of bitter.

“A very good address (if you can find it)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Hard to find, but worth looking for, this place has amazing appetizers and very good main courses in traditional Alentejo style. Friendly and relatively quick service. Very good value.

“A restaurant that meets and preserves the tradition (the best pork ever!)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

This place is a typical and traditional restaurant, serving you very good food at a reasonable and fair price. They have a great selection of wines (especially regional ones). We had meat, the very special pork and veal, perfectly cooked, that we accompanied with a red wine (cartuxa selection), plus fruit and a cake, for a fair price of 50 euros (two person). The service is standard, it is a great place if you don't mind a standard atmosphere but you are more interested in what you eat! Don't go there after nine pm without reservations, because they will not accept you (the cooker, an old lady is nice but don't make her angry!).

“what a beautiful restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

we were given the name of Luar de Janeiro by Peter and Nina Brinkman, owners of Albergaria do Calvario and we were so grateful. We were amazed at the quality of the food.....the owner is the chef and her son receives you with the most beautiful menu! We had the local prosciutto "Pata Negra" which is to die for followed by the best veal steak I have ever had. The rice was a risotto with spearmint which I will never forget. Don't miss the to die for deserts which are all made daily.
