I love this restaurant. Fixed price, house wine or forget it. Everything included, and the most delicious pork we've ever had. Spinach is unique, service great. I loved the waiter's sense of humour.......everyone in the restaurant had pork, I overheard him ask the table next to us..."how did you enjoy your fish?"......they were not amused, but I was. Get a reservation, they were turning them away. Hard to find, but stay with it. If you have to walk down the street through hanging laundry, you are close.

The place looks simple and so is the food. The deal is you show up and the owners serves you food. You do not have to choose food or wine - the owners does it for you. The food is very simple, but really good. The owner does not speak english but its not needed, as you never have to ask for anything (OK - you do need to ask for the bill which you can signal with your hands). Btw, the owner keeps serving food till you can't eat more (which is a shame given how good everything is). With the food is so good and the atmosphere so relaxed I had a great time. I returned to the place one more time and it was the same. In the end we paid 30 euros a person which makes the quality price ration amazingly high.

Great ambiance, authentic portuguese cuisine, and fun service make this THE place to eat in Évora. The owners are so nice and the food is amazing! The restaurant is small, so I recommend making a reservation. Please visit the Taberna, it is truly an unforgettable experience.

We picked this restaurant based on our hotel's staff & tripadvisor's recommendations, and were not let down. My family including our two teenage sons loved the atmosphere and the food was the best ever! I speak some portuguese and that did help since the owner does not speak any english. You don't need portuguese if you go in with an open mind and you will be rewarded with a magical night. Food is local, fresh and prepared the traditional way and the dessert was out of this world good. Make reservations, this place is so popular with the locals that you might be turned away at the door. Outstanding meal! Outstanding owner!

I have been visiting the restaurant more than a decade ago and it was then one of my finest dining experiences ever. The location has changed and the restaurant became more intimate but the quality of food remains exceptionally high. Portuguese kitchen is basic in comparison to the delights of the mediterranean cuisine but it is celebrated in Quarta Feira at an exceptional level. There is no menu but you can discuss with the Chef what you want to have or else he supplies you with the specials of the day. Went twice within a week and there was variation. Will come back.
The owner apparantly doesn't accept reservations from Hotels (because guests haven't honored them it seems) so make sure you'll stop by and reserve.
