This small simple restaurant did not have an English menu and didn't speak much English, and we had forgotten to bring our Menu translated.
So we asked to see the actual dishes, recognised cod and chose it and decided on another which looked like little fish, turned out to be squid!
The very friendly lady brought a tray of mini starters and we chose a couple we recognised.
We chose desserts from the counter.
It was all delicious and.reasonably priced.

A small restaurant to Portuguese standards but real portuguese kitchen. Take daily menu. A little surprise for me...Very good wine of the house.

the restaurant has a nice terrace, right off the main square in Grandola. If you fancy the local Alentejo cuisine, this is a good place to go. Food is served amazingly fast. It is not refined but comes in copious plates with big chuncks of meat or more migas than you can eat. The menu is quite limited but if you book in advance, you can also eat the famous rice with fish stew (arroz marisco I believe it's called). Service is great (especially the young waitress) who translated the menu for us with a smile).

Food was good, but the staff seemed overwhelmed with the amount of customers.

Asking for the check was a hassle as they didn't even look to the tables which had already been served. I had to chase the waiters to pay.

Also no ATM service available when I went there.

This restaurant was a find. It is off the highway in a quaint town. We had a mixture of Portuguese food that was very tasty. Tapas very good. Service outstanding and very attentive to details. The patio is beautiful. Worth the drive.
