“Intimate atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

I had the fish bisque. Enough for two and I shared with my husband. He really wanted to come here. We watched the opening ceremonies from London Olympics there.

This is a good restaurant, with reasonable prices and great food. Nice place to try the typical plates from Alentejo.

“Go there hungry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

It sounds like a theme restaurant but it is not. There is little to say about the decor or the service as all the restaurants is similar to many in the town. It is small with just enough space between tables to maintain an acceptable level of comfort. The staff are professional and friendly without being imposing.
I ordered a veal cutlet that duly arrived on a large oval platter accompanied by potatoes, that were a cross between sautéed and game chips together with a little lettuce. I was not prepared for the size of the cutlet. It covered the whole platter and all the other components were arranged on top. A further surprise was the quality of the veal, grilled by a kitchen that knows how to use a grill properly, well seasoned and served with a little lemon.
My wife ordered fish, the sole was off so she had some sort of shark steak. Well grilled and all of the above observations applied to her dish. The house red was cheap and cheerful. No complaints about anything apart from the risk to the waist line.
