One off the best restaurants with typical food from Alentejo. The owners are a very friendly couple who made everything to make us fill like home.

On a rainy night, late in the evening, Maria received us with her famous and prized Cozido. We loved it! After the cozido and a dish of "secretos" we couldn't find the place for the deserts but perhaps on another ocasion. The service was premium.

Very good traditional restaurant. Interesting design - interior walls imitating the facades of houses. A perfect place for gourmets meat. Especially pork and lamb. And at the end: excellent homemade desserts. Only disadvantage is the high prices.

Wonderful potato chips, good stuffed pork secretos. The deserts were almost perfect (encharcada, chocolate cake, farofias). The thing is... In Alentejo, I've paid less for even better food.
