“Atmospheric Restaurant with Local Dishes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

Adega Velha translates as 'Old Winery' and on entering you find yourself in an old-fashioned bar with a polished stone floor and huge earthenware wine jars. Behind this are the rooms that comprise the restaurant area with antique furniture and a collection of old radio sets filling a whole wall. The menu is limited and, as might be expected in an inland area, focuses on meat based dishes. We started our dinner with a small local cheese and a plate of sliced charcuterie and then went on to cozido de grau, a dish of chickpea stew flavoured with mint and accompanied, on a separate platter, with a mound of boiled pork and sausages. Really delicious and the single portion that we shared was more than sufficient for the two of us and was great value at just 9€ although we did feel that we might not have done our cholesterol levels any good by the time we had finished. Other menu options included hare and partridge. The waitress was helpful and friendly and we would happily recommend this restaurant to all who enjoy hearty portions of well-cooked simple food..

Restaurante Adega Velha has no competition for miles. A genuine experience. The food is top-notch Alentejo. Ambiance as well. Don't miss out on this one.

“Oasis in a hot county”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2011

We have already heard a lot about this place, so we decided to arrive early at lunch. They asked us for our reservation but we had not, but that was not a problem because they fixed some tables and in a minute we were sitting in a fresh and cosy dinner room, full of wine barrels and a collection of old sound equipments, drinking their wine because they say it's a wine cellar!! The food portions are huge, tasty and cheap. If you have the luck we had, you can hear some traditional songs from the village mens that often stop at the restaurant hall desk to drink some wine and sing with their fellows of a lifetime.
