My husband and I were attracted to this restaurant because of the sign advertising vegetables. We had been travelling for nearly 4 weeks and had found very few places that serve vegetables. We were sick of the chips and salad served by many places. The meals we had at Momentos were fantastic. My husband had the pork spare ribs in honey and I had fish and vegetables. Everything was beautifully presented, very tasty and fresh. We left our plates clean. The owner could not have been more helpful and our waitress was very efficient. The place was clean and bright. We agree with everyone else's comments. This place is a gem. And very well priced.

This is a new and affordable place in the heart of old Evora offers a quality and healthy range of fresh local cuisine, wines, fresh juices and other beverages. The owner and staff are very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. The menu is extremely diverse yet sticks to adventurous reinterpretation of traditional Portuguese dishes using fresh local produce. There is something for everyone. Whether you want a light salad, vegetarian fare, tapas, a traditional meal or seafood adventure for the table to share, or a desert to indulge, its all there; accompanied by an appropriate local wine or juice. We stumbled upon this small treasure and enjoyed our meal very much.

We arrived in Evora hungry and tired. We thought that we just wanted a sandwich, got bored of looking for one and just flopped at Momentos because it was there. Little did we suspect what awaited us. We ordered what we thought was merely a roasted vegetables dish and a salad. Gosh! What we got was heavenly, seriously delicious and beautifully presented. The owner was relaxed, friendly and spoke excellent English. I have no idea what the folks at the table next to us ordered , but it looked amazing. It's only been open for ten weeks....
Momentos is bound to be a hit, and quite rightly so.

We had a very enjoyable meal at this restaurant. Our 7 year old and fussy teenagers also enjoyed the experience. The food was of exceptional quality and beautifully presented. The wine was also excellent.

Whilst slightly more expensive that some of the meals we had, we happily recommend. If we were without children, we would certainly have returned!

The owner spoke excellent english and it was nice to have interaction and ease of ordering.

We vacationed in Portugal for a little over two weeks, and this was one of our most memorable meals. As you may know, or will find out, Portugal has no shortage of fine restaurants. The service was impeccable, friendly and the owner and his staff were exceptionally welcoming. The owner, who also speaks fluent English and French, prides himself on using only the best products, locally sourced daily, and the meals are excellent and carefully presented. The 4 of us ordered different dishes and we were all blown away. If you are going to Evora, this place is a must.
