“Evora's alternative to Fialho's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

A wonderful little restaurant lost in the middle of Evora with superb food and wine. I enjoyed it immensely with my partners. Although simple in the decor, the food is top quality and the cook an extremely nice lady.

“Excellent food. Great selection.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

The black pork with clams was amazing! We were only in Evora two nights and wished we had returned the 2nd night instead of wasting our money on Taberna Tipica Quarta-Feira. Luar de Janeiro's food is so much better!

We selected several of the small starter plates and could easily have made a meal of those. Be careful with them. Select the plates you want and ask for the others to be removed or your bill will be enormous. Price was higher than some places, mostly because we ordered more, including a dessert. However for the quality of food and taste we were quite happy.

“Good food but not very welcoming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

Recommended by hotel. Not very friendly welcome but warmed as the evening went on. We both had pork and it was good, except it was cooked in lashings of garlic and this was a little overpowering. Price 60EU for two including wine and desert. Price could easily escalate.

“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.
