We went on a Wednesday evening in mid Sept. I am glad that we had reserved a table as the place was very packed. The service was impressive and very friendly- the owner recognised us from booking earlier in the day. The food was just...More

Excellent option in Estremoz. The place is well decorated, members of the staff are very nice, and the food is excellent. Very central location, with free parking in the main square (just 3 min walking). Parking in Rossio Marques de Pombal is a good option...More

There is outside dining but we chose to eat in the refreshing air conditioned dining room. Started with a couple of dark local beers which were good but 9% so quite strong. Having read starters were large we chose 4 between us. All were very...More

As others have commented, the starter portions are large... But I think my grilled goats cheese with pear and with thyme ice cream is one of the top 10 starters I have ever had. I then had the breaded fried prawns with chilli sauce and...More

Family lunch with 2 kids. Nice decoration and overall concept. No kids menu and food was a bit of a letdown. Adults had just tapas and none was great, pasteis bacalhau too big and not crunchy; pica pau was good but not excepcional and mushrooms...More

A must visit. Very nice place, excellent choices of wine and a good use of the best food in Portugal with a different approach from other restaurants in the area. A bit expensive, but worth it!

The first glass of wine that my husband ordered was fine but we were charged 5€ for it! It is the first time in my life this happens to me: getting served the most expensive wine without even being asked to pick up from a...More

This is a surprising place... it's divided in different areas, where you can have a meal like in any regular restaurant, or just have some snacks ("petiscos" as we say in Portugal) outside, and also a sort of grocery store where you can buy some...More

Stopped in Estremoz on a recent trip in Portugal. The restaurant was a TA recommendation and didn't disappoint. We got a table outside on a lovely night. Be careful however there is a bar next door, and they often have a tv on the wall...More

Thank you very much for your review. Sorry for the noise of the neighbor's tv, but unfortunately we can not do anything about this. The stronger color of the puree should be the sweet potato, which is orange. We hope you will return soon. Best...More

Hi, it's a bit uphill. I didn't try walking but it should take about 20 minutes (but I'm not sure). We had our car.
