“Amazing Place. One of Those You Can't Miss”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

What a place! This was one of my last great discoveries in Estremoz (Alentejo). Great atmosphere, getting you the feeling you are going back in time, and great food and wine service. You have it all and you must be strong when it's time to leave. You better make a reservation first because the place is always full and it doesn't closes any day of the week or during the day. It's almost 24 hours a day :)

Thank you for your review. Our team is grateful for the motivation.
We inform that we have a day off: Monday, and the restaurant is not open on Sunday evenings. But always have a good option: some tapas at the Grocery Store :D
We hope to see you soon.

The strength here is the use of local produce. Excellent bread and olives; fabulous rabbit&rice, similarly the asparagus scrambled egg and ham. Beautifully fresh salad. A very happy, relaxed restaurant, by any standard a wonderful place to eat.

“Nice Spot for Lunch”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

While visiting the area of Estremoz and Monsarez we came across this place. The outdoor seating looked very inviting and without knowing it was a Trip Advisor location we got a table and requested menus. The menu was very nice and the food was great! It truly was something we merely stumbled upon and enjoyed thoroughly! Great relaxing, peaceful spot!

“Nice surprize in Estremoz”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

I went to Mercearia Gadanha looking for some genuine products from Estremoz and Alentejo, only after entering realized there is also a café and restaurant.

I was pleasantly surprized with the overall quality and nice offer of some gourmet products from Alentejo. I bought the chouriço de porco preto which was the best I've tried so far, the fat melts.

There is small wine shop inside, focused mainly on Alentejo and with some really good quality on display and reasonably priced.

I was worth the visit, must come back to try the restaurant!

“Wunderbar, Surprising, Magnífico”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

This small establishment surprised us for it's content: excellent gourmet products, friendly and welcoming young staff, and last but not least an excellent restaurant with traditional menu but elaborated with modern techniques, interesting mix of flavours and delicious taste.

We chose the mixed eggs with sparagus, the green pees cream and the cod fish with regional ham, all very good, followed with local Dona Maria red wine. To end this gastronomical experience we have chosen the creme brulee and the chocolate mousse 70% with red fruits.

We found it a more cosy option than other alternatives with higher standing in town, and thus with the best value for money ratio (48€ 2 pax).

I trully recommend.

Thank Gugu .
