OCTOPUS, Go for the broiled octopus in local Marvao Olive oil and garlic. I had it on August 1, 2015 and July 23 2017. And I will have it again next time. Sea bream, Gazpacho and Coriander soup and assorted 'sausage' also excellent.

A place with a breath-taking view over Alentejo planes. The staff were helpful but, due to several unfortunate mistakes, the meals ended up not being that pleasant.

We had dinner here 3 times and it was always really good. Typical regional kitchen, good open wines for a really fair price. The service was most attentive and friendly. Nice panoramic view over the valley. Can recommend it warmly.
