“Great Food Great Prices....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

We had lunch at Lumumba, what a nice place, overlooking the valley. Service was prompt and cordial. Fodo was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. We tried the house wine Monsaraz and ended up getting 24 bottles to bring home. You can visit the shop at Carmin Winery and buy the wine by the case. Monsaraz is a lovely medieval town nestle in the Alentejo region. Will definately go back next time we visit the Alentejo.

“standard Alentejan restaurant = good food, nice price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2011

Good solid food from Alentejo (mind you - no international dishes). I recommend the "queixada de porco". Service is quick and might not understand English. Nice view from the terrace. Kitchen closes at 8.30pm. Do walk around Monsaraz after the dinner!

“Good and cheap!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2010

With a name that implies african origins, it's actualy a tipical local restaurant of Alentejo, with good quality and very adequate prices. I wouldn't rate as very good, but it certainly is good enough ! Outside there's a small balcony with an interesting view of Alqueva lake and surrondings. The restaurant is located inside Monsaraz, the village and castle being perched on top of the hill. Friendly atmosphere and service. I´m not sure if the staff is fluent in other languages, but I reckon a few english words will help you choose what you prefer!
