Well worth a visit for good quality rustic local dishes and good value for money. Yes you have to wait a while for your food, but that's the same all over Portugal. It is well worth the wait. Friendly family run in a pleasant location.

If you want to wait one hour and a half for the food, then this is the restaurant for you! Also, if you like really steamy hot weather indoors without air conditioner or electric fans, then it's the perfect environment for you. But not for me. Terrible service!

If you have time, because they take quite some time to serve the meals, once the food is ALL COOKED AT THE MOMENT, it is a must visit! We asked for steak and, GOD, it was one of the best I have ever had! In the middle of nothing you can find this family and very typical restaurant! It is... More

For gastronomy lovers and if you want to experiment some of typical Alentejo dishes this is a place to visit! But take your time, because everything is cooked on time and maybe you need to wait 45m to start eating! But you will see that the food will make you forget the waiting!!!
