“Excellent”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

Great Food in a beautifull enviroment. There is a small art gallery in the buliding which is a converted oil press and the owners have retained most of the original features. the service and food were second to none.

“Nice ambience but food nothing special”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

Atmosphere was good. Food however was expensive for the fare and nothing that you couldn't find in any local restaurant. Main courses were 12 to 15 Euros which was relatively expensive. Also we were overcharged by 13 Euros - they place 5 starters on the table and even when we asked for them to be taken away they still charged us. Main courses are large and can be shared between two.

“Outstanding characterful restaurant”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

This is without doubt one of the best restaurants we have found in Portugal (and we've been in a few!) Built around an olive press and with an idiosyncratic style we could perhaps describe as rural-industrial, the views are superb (sit outside if weather permits), and the service superb. Simple Portuguese fare is elevated by choice ingredients presented thoughtfully, and value is superb.

“Best meal in Portugal”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

We had barbecued lamb which was the best we've ever tasted. The deserts were outstanding. The owner is also the cook.

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed August 29, 2009

Tasty local dishes. We visited two nights running. Definitely book a table outside - inside can be noisy with the loud music. Lovely views of Monsaraz.
