this is a well located and attractively designed local restaurant in Evora. Nothing exotic or particularly creative, but the food was well executed. The wine cellar is particularly good and we had a local reserve wine that was delicious. Good value.

Our family had a wonderful evening at BL lounge in December, 2013. We were looked after so nicely; the wait service was probably the best we have ever experienced: professional, courteous, informative about our wines (which we had brought ourselves at no corkage fee), great food choice recommendations and all in a lovely, modern yet warm atmosphere. Food was top... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by our hotelier, who advised: "Do not miss the mushroom appetizer." How could we say no? It went beyond even our wildest imaginings. I don't know how they do it, but six mushrooms with garlic and coriander appeared that tasted like French snails without the snails. Buttery, flavor oozing from every bite. Wow! Oh, wait,... More

The restaurant was an excellent choice. It was a little hard to find (we got lost 2 times). The owner accepted our reservation despite having a private party book the entire place. We had perfectly grilled tuna, salad and desert. Very good service.

Our hotel, Albergaria do Calvario, had suggested we eat here after we told them we were looking for a place with good fish. It did not disappoint. Everything from the food to the service was exceptional. The manager spoke perfect English and I also heard him conversing in French at another table. This was very helpful. We ordered the cheese...

We were outside peering in the window as this modern restaurant opened at 7 30pm and were delighted we chose it. The owner has lived all over, including Australia, and has brought new ideas home to create traditional Portuguese dishes with a lighter twist. We enjoyed the eggplant, tomato and garlic mayonnaise appetizer along with a carrots in garlic infused... More

BL Lounge is a new establishment in Evora and has set a new standard. The interior was recently refurbished in a contemporary style and is very pleasing. The mixed salad, octopus and tuna were all well cooked, tender and delectable. The staff was very friendly and attentive. They even suggested a new wine app to aid in selection and reviewing....

My family of 5 had dinner at the BL Lounge while in Evora in August. We had an excellent dinner--the food was excellent, we liked the ambiance and the owner was very friendly. My husband and I had an excellent fish soup which was a meal. The owner gave us a complimentary after dinner drink that he produced himself. I... More

First to say that some reviews I've read does not reveal the real truth. This is an excellent restaurant, great ambience, nice hospitality, and above all Great Food. Even with kids they always find a way to surprises us. It was our best choice in Évora. Congratulations Bl lounge.

Very friendly owner who provides excellent recommendations on the wine front and helps you get the best from the menu.
