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...More

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!!!!

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.

Hard to find, but worth looking for, this place has amazing appetizers and very good main courses in traditional Alentejo style. Friendly and relatively quick service. Very good value.

In Évora you have plenty of choices for great restaurants. I have been there many times but don't know them all. From those I know this is the best in my opinion. I went there many times and will keep going again in the future....More

In our opinion a fantastic restaurant and, of the more than ten restaurants we have visited, our definitive favourite. Try the pork cheek or the black pork with clams and let the waiter/owner choose the wine. In our experience you cannot go wrong. For dessert,...More
