Very good food, but the price is very high. It will worth it just to know the tipical food of Alentejo. An advice ... please go with time to try all the good things

“Very good and very expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The service is excellent, and so is the food. And you get to try some of the best from Alentejo.
And you pay for what you eat, so you probably end up eating to much (most of the times). It is too expensive for a normal dinner/ lunch

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

We had a great evening there. We tried a huge number of dishes and all were great. Very difficult to pick a favourite. Best meal we had in Evora. It is a very small place. Front of the house is basically the owner. He spent a good time talking to us. Very friendly. His wife is responsible for the kitchen. Worth a visit.

The food was excellent and the wine list amazing. The place has a traditional decoration and we can have a course meal or do a meal with "petiscos". Overall is a great experiençe and a great place to have dinner in evora. Is a very small place. Max 15px.

“This is the true Temple in Évora”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

It is considered one of the top 100 restaurants in Portugal, and once you have the opportunity to go there you understand why.How does it only rank #19 in Évora here in TripAdvisor beats me...
Everything, and I do mean everything, that is brought to the table is sublime, the quality, the flavours, the texture, just amazing.
It is very easy to go very expensive, so you must have a "meeal strategy": go for several cold and hot starters, and if you have still enough "stomach space", choose one main dish for each 2 people. Otherwise, you cannot try the desserts...and that would not be good.
And the owner is the friendliest of persons. You feel you're at a friend's place having meal.
There is one thing bad though »» it only sits 14 people! They are the "chosen ones", but if you are not able to go there, it is your loss.
Without wine, and using the strategy above, we payed about 32 euros/person. Not cheap, but I guarantee, worth every single bite...
