Only place we could find open - but we were so lucky to find this place! Food allergy dealt with(using my limited Portuguese) and we were brought a huge platter of food which I began to share between the two of us. Then my husband's food arrived!! It was delicious. Meal was about 9 euros each. Local Red wine was... More

We lucked out since we could find nowhere else in town that was open - in spite of the tourist office saying there were several places. Communication was a challenge but we managed to order from what we think was the menu of the day. Portions were huge and food was good. One of us had pork tenderloin and the... More

We went there as it has been highly recommended by locals, and no disappointment. Typical Portuguese food, inspired in the traditional Alentejo dishes, very well cooked, nothing fancy, but really good. Service was very friendly and the deserts amazing. This is not the restaurant if you want a somewhat Michelin restaurant with fancy well decorated dishes. This restaurant worth only... More

We only went here because the restaurant we had been recommended was closed ( incidentally a more highly rated one). It was full of Portuguese people with their families out for lunch so great atmosphere. Service was quick in spite of there being only one waiter for many tables . Don't be put off by the hand written menu-I agree... More

...and then ask a young local to help! This restaurant is rated 5 out of 9 restaurants in Monsaraz. It is outstanding! The menu was in illegible (to me) handwriting, and that's just what we did. My husband had pork filets, and I had beef shank. The couvert was wonderful Bread, cheese and olives, and we shared a bottle of... More

I was here for dinner with my girlfriend on our only evening in Monsaraz. It was very quiet and we had the balcony to ourselves. The staff were very friendly and we could really chill out with excellent food and stunning scenery. The veal was so soft it melted in our mouths, dessert was delicious (and we even got a... More

Horribly untrendy, but good, honest local cuisine. The trendiest may head for the trendier restaurants, but it seems the locals populate this place. Surely there can be no better recommendation. OK, it's not amazing. But if you want a full belly and not pay through the nose, you can surely do no better.

Besides the view, the food is something different! You must taste it! After a great dinner we had a great ride in Monsaraz with a beautiful sky full of stars.
