You get an idea of what type of experience this will be from the moment you are greeted by the owner, a pure delight. Just let him order your food and wine and you will truly enjoy the experience like a local.

We came here for lunch after a recommendation from our hotel, and we did not regret it. The restaurant looked quite full when we arrived, but the owner moved some people and some chairs and we where seated. We decided what to have for lunch (which is the same as for dinner) and he kept serving the excellent food and drinks. I had the veal and my boyfriend had the lamb and it was very good, we also had melon and ham for starters to share. There is a lot of food, so be prepared to leave with a very full stomach, you just don't want to stop eating:) It is obvious a popular place, and he had to turn down quite a few people while we where there.

With only 10 spots you better be there at 7pm (time it opens), or have a back-up plan! The place is just perfect: small, cozy and oh so nice! The owner loves to talk but be prepared with some Portuguese words (his English is kind of poor), but hey! Maybe you're lucky and find us there next time! I am definitely coming back!

I dragged a reluctant family down a side street to visit this restaurant. Their faces when we walked in were priceless. 12 stools round a bar! It was busy but we got seats as people were leaving. From the start the owner was fantastic. We fairly much let him decide what we ate and although his English is not great we made do. The food was world class. The 4 starters were shared between each of us and i have no doubt he made extra as he knew we wanted to share them all and served them one at a time on seperate plates. The mains were also fantastic. I had the baked fish, the best i have had in years, certainly better than any i had in Portugal and Spain. Dessert was beyond us. Overall, I would make the trip to Evora, just for this restaurant. We heard the next day, it is 1 of the only 2 Golden Fork restaurants in Portugal. If true, I can see why!

Having read fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor and hearing great recommendations from our hotel about the quality and authenticity of 'Botequim da Mouraria' we were a bit on the excited side. Armed with the knowledge there were only 9 bar seats in the restaurant we waited at 6.30pm for the doors to open at 7pm - we didn't want to miss our opportunity! Waiting in the line was fun because we met a lovely couple from Belgium whom we shared conversation and laughs throughout the night in this intimate setting. The husband and wife team are very entertaining and we'd highly recommend you accept menu and wine suggestions because they are spot on. The home made food cooked fresh in a small kitchen delivers amazing flavour! It's the best restaurant in Evora.
