We stopped here for a coffee after visiting the monastery and adjacent church; it has a great view of both being right on the square. There seems to be just one person taking orders and making the drinks so if it was busy we'd guess...you'd have a long wait, luckily it was quiet. We paid EUR6.60 for 2 latte coffees and 2 Portuguese tarts; good value, and they accept Visa!More

We chose this restaurant on the square by feel, the weather was uncertain and cold, this place looked inviting and felt good to enter. Seated immediately, professional service! I had an excellent Tuna Salad (perhaps the best I've had so far in Portugal), my wife...had Chicken salad, unique with fruit mixed in, also tasty. Good house wine. We ordered a side of chips ( our weakness) which were fabulous. The clientele was a mixture of local business people and visitors to Batalha. Fair price, Excellent service. There is a pride and teamwork here that we would all be fortunate to experience.More

Although Pap Oliva is located in a very touristic square, right in from of the big Monastery from Batalha, it is good for a quick meal as a pit stop after the visit. The food is not great but quite fair so I would go...for small bites or a sandwich while appreciating the view. Service is correct and waiters are courteous. The price is very reasonable for what you getMore

We stopped here for lunch before visiting the monastery. I got the shrimp and mushroom spagetti and like it; the wife got bracheta (which was bigger than she expected) and vegetable soup (which she said needed more vegetables). We also got some ice cream cones...(good flavor) and almond treats to go (which were sweet and not much flavor). The total for all that was 20 euro.More

Stopped in for a late lunch. We weren't very hungry so just ordered chicken soup and bruschetta. The way we tore into the soup you would have thought it was a delicacy. It was just rich with flavours. Not expensive and great service.

Wondering around Batalha at lunch time, we saw there are many people seating inside so we decided to try it. First, restaurant was very clean. Second, service was very fast and waiter was very informative about menu. We ordered his recommendation and did not regret.Food...was very good, fresh and well cooked. Third suprise came with a bill. Price was really cheap for such quality and quantity. So, I highly recommend this restaurant.More

We arrived here at 5pm, and the kitchen was closed. So we had to settle for some patries, drinks and freshly squeezed orange juice... all delicious. Service is extremely efficient. But the best part is its location in front of the monestary. It's in a...large square overlooking the monestary, and a great place for people watching.More

Strong on pizzas and pastas, but they also have other options. Our pastas were tasty and not the sort of a-couple-of-spaghetti-strands-on-your-plate. Good, quick service; good prices, too. I'd recommend it if you're in the area and not in the mood for the more "regional" kind...of things.More
