“The Top one in Évora”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

In Évora you have plenty of choices for great restaurants. I have been there many times but don't know them all.
From those I know this is the best in my opinion. I went there many times and will keep going again in the future.
For me is not just the top one in Évora, but one of a short list in Portugal.
Great food, whatever you choose. All is great.
One thing I love threre is to have several small dishes on the table once you arrive, after booking.
This proves again and again to be a great remark of this place, and again this last time when me and my friends arrived there for a long day of travelling by car.
"Pedriz (partridge) de escabeche", cheese, scrambled eggs with aspargus, ham, etc.
Then we ordered some "cabrito no forno" with rice and "esparregado". GREAT.
Great choices of Alentejo wines.
Great service "Alentejo style". Quiet but very helpfull.
It is not cheap, but considering the quality, one can't ask for more.

“Our favourite restaurant in Evora”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

In our opinion a fantastic restaurant and, of the more than ten restaurants we have visited, our definitive favourite.

Try the pork cheek or the black pork with clams and let the waiter/owner choose the wine. In our experience you cannot go wrong.

For dessert, try the choholate mousse or the desert on egg yolks, sugar, almonds and cinnamon. Both are fantastic, in our opinion.

Have dined here in both 20120 and 2011 and vill definitely return in the future.

“Good service, great local food, huge servings!”
Reviewed December 5, 2011

My wife and I ate here on the recommendation of our hotel and it did not disappoint. For our first night in Portugal we were treated to great local dishes, with plenty of food! Both the lamb and black pork were fantastic, as were the selection of appetizers including a delicious local goat cheese.

“100% alentejo attitude.”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

Before seating, the table is already decorated with several suggestions of entries. All perfect.
Then you choose dish, wine znd dessert, all regional and perfect.
Don't doubt that you will have a good meal.
