“Outstanding”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

The patron of this restaurant is a very nice man speaking different languages and makes you feel at home. He takes a lot of time explaining the various courses on the menu. We camera with our family, two adults and two children, and had the the 2 'momentos' courses, one with 3 kinds of fish and the other with 3 kinds of meat. So we could taste 6 different kinds of alentejo food. We were very pleased with it, had a wonderfull diner and extreme value for money!!

“Great experience”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

We went to this restaurant because it had good reviews and it didn't disappoint. We enjoyed good food especially the beef. And got some good advise on the wine.

They say the prizes are a bit high compared to other restaurants in Evora. But they weren't that high and you get very good quality for it.

Above all the staff was very friendly and you were definitely noticed. All in all a great experience if we get the chance we'll surely go back.

“Fresh, unique, delicious”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Tony and I loved the white sangria with cucumbers, the organic olive oils, artistically arranged delicious food and the great service. But most of all we adored the owner, George, who was passionately proud of his food. He was a great host, shared his ideas with us, gave us free samples and complimentary drinks. He made our stay in Evora so much more special. We wish him the best of luck and much success in the future. Much love from Canada!

“Superb food, great hospitality”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

The chalk board outside promissed: fresh vegetables. That was the trigger to enter Momentos.
Two evenings we had a great dinner here. We started with a fresh squeezed and shaken lemon and lime lemonade: heaven. The chef/owner explains the menu at your table and takes care of you, checking is everything is ok. First evening fish and cheese tapas. The second evening a fresh fish with vegetables. Wine, desserts, coffees: everything is superb. We were really blown away by the kindness and hospitality of this team, under the direction of a charming host. I will be back for another dance...

“A gem”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend was not feeling good, so we just walked in the nearest open door! What a lucky move! We where instantly greated by the staff and owner! We got seated in a cosy room. A very friendly man, who i pressume was the owner guided us through the menues! Everything on the menu seemed to be invented by the boss/kitchen! My girlfriend wanted the tuna, but she does not like it cooked "rare" as they usually make it! He gave her a version he had just tried himselfe a few days ago! He told the kitchen how to cook it an they realy delivered! The food was fantastic He gladly answared all our questions, even very spesific questions on how the food was made! A wonderfull experience! If you want something different, and like that little "extra" when dining this is the place for you
