“Excellent food and service!!!!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

We had diner here in octobre. It was very good!!!! We had the lamb and pork with tomatobread. As dessert the waitress (probably the owner) showed us various tradional homemade cakes. They smelled all delicious! The one we chooses tasted also delicious. Service was very friendly. In conclusion it was a great dinner experience, wich you have to try when you're in Evora!

“Simple, tasty, filling food and great service”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Although it took us two tries to find this restaurant, it was worth it. At first, the menu was confusing, with some soup-like dishes costing €9 or so but the very helpful waitress explained that there were main courses; we could split one if we liked but one was too big for one person's starter. (Always nice to be stopped from over-ordering in a restaurant, I think - profits aren't everything). We asked her for a recommendation and both of us ended up getting variations of lamb, one a stew and the other a roast lamb on fried potatoes. Both were delicious and filling and, with the bread cheese and olives to start, we were very replete after the meal. We asked the waitress if there was a local digestif we could try and she obliged, producing a luminous yellow liqueur made from water mint, the name I can't remember but it was very nice indeed. There were a few tables in there when we arrived and there only seemed to be one cook and one waitress, so they were busy but the service was very good. Also liked the location away from the main tourist-trap square in Evora, where I suspect one might be overcharged for worse food! Worth a visit.

“Nice, simple and cheap”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

Nice restaurant that we choose from recommendation.
Simple traditional but good food. We had the Bacalhau Divino which was very nice and the best Bacalhau dish we have ever tasted. The local white wine was simple but nice to the Bacalhau
The service was good but not great. You have to remember that this is a simple local restaurant.
We normally eat at better restaurants when in Evora (Luar d'Janeiro being our favourite) but it is nice to sometimes skip the heavy black pork meat and the nice red wines and clean the palate with something lighter.
We wil be back the next time we are in Evora.

“tourist trap...”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

The expérience we had was totally different than the ones written previously...
We had even the impression than the waitress (with a constant smile on her face and quite nervous) was sorry to serve so poor food...
I ordered the roasted lamb and get the stew instead, with more bones than meat.I can do much better myself at home...
My wife ordered the sea bass and get a very little piece with a few vegetables served absolutely plain..
The red wine house was nearly undrinkable and the white absolutely blank...
OK, prices are low, but are very expensive for what you get ....
Nearly all restaurants in Evora offer the same thing ((5 - 6 different dishes) and seem to survive in serving the less costly "cuisine" to balance the lack of clients... It was a nice September evening and all of them were nearly empty.
I will recommend to chose your restaurants among the five first listed on this site
