May 06, 2016 we visited the restaurant at our receptionist recommendation and it was one of the best surprises in Portugal. First: it was their second day after opening under new management and after extensive renovations. Secondly it was a great, enjoyable atmosphere, warm smiles and a team at our service to really appreciate. Specific, regional meals, with a twist,... More

Located in a basement, this restaurant offers fresh, regional dishes. We tried pork and fish and both were tasty and nicely presented. Service was friendly and informative. A nice alternative to the touristy outdoor restaurants in the Praca do Giraldo.

We ate at three highly recommended places in Evora and this was the best - the food we had were local specialities, but not the usual ones, and everything was well-presented and delicious, with good wines. Good value, too.

We were very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed our regional meal. The price was reasonable, ambiance comfortable, and the service was excellent. I started with the egg, bread, and coriander soup (rich chicken broth with a fried egg, cilantro, and big croutons) served very hot from a tureen. Then, roast lamb (2 shanks) and roasted potatoes. Yummy! My husband was disappointed... More

This restaurant is very close to Praça do Giraldo, which should already have prepared me for the worst... The place is nice enough, cool inside and with high ceilings. It's the second time I visited and it was again almost empty. And the reason for that is that the dishes they offer are completely tasteless...we had the "carne de Porco... More

Exactly as it says in the title of the review - we had a very nice meal here and the waiter was welcoming and very helpful from the moment we stepped through the door. He patiently guided us through the choice of dishes and, with his help, we enjoyed a delicious meal. The food is rustic and authentic, so if... More

I went there to taste the "javali", i.e. the wild pork. It was the best ever, and for 14 euro it is all worth it. Take care in ordering wine, dessert and so on because the price can grow a lot. Deserves a visit. (Miglior cinghiale mai mangiato. Scegliete "javali" sul menù. Merita una visita)

We arrived in Evora late (8pm-ish) Sunday night without any idea of what would be available and it was a little too dark to just wander, so, with a taxi driver's directions we found this place; which I recognized from my guide book. The street is on a steep incline and the restaurant itself a former (15th century?) wine cellar.... More

During my day trip to Evora, we were given two hours of free time, so I darted around and saw a lot of stuff and then ended up back in the main square by this restaurant. I saw they had a deal for a pork sandwich (very good pork in this part of Portugal) and fries with a drink. So... More
