From here, you have amazing views of the non-Lake side of Monsaraz. You can sit outside with a cold beer in the summer, or inside in the warm in the winter and have delicious soup and toasted, garlicky sandwiches. The desserts are superb (if any left!)

We only had drinks here so cannot comment on the food. The views from the outside terrace were spectacular. And reasonably priced to boot.

We got to Xarez on a warm afternoon. We sat under the Pampas umbrellas and took in the breathtaking views. Of course we did so while drinking wine, and sampling local sheep and goat cheeses amongst a few other tasty items. I did peek inside and that looked really quaint as well. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. This... More

Fantastic views across the plains below. Excellent food from a limited menu. I personally thought the service was slow but the waiting staff were very pleasant. This was on a bull fighting night and every restaurant was full.

We had the hot rock and the port cheeks and this was a really delicious meal. The service was great and the view at sunset was amazing. Highly recommended. Closed on Thursday.

We chose to eat at Xarez because of the wonderful location with a perfect view we saw when walking by. We sat inside where it was a bit chilly, but the view unimpared thanks to large glass windows. They had an english menu which lacked detailed information that the staff also couldn't provide. We blindly chose for a dish with... More

I had bacalhau à bras and for someone that knows Portuguese food this was by far the best dish I have experienced. It was a lovely warm night in Monsaraz and the atmosphere and staff were nothing but the best. Thanks

We stopped there for a drink and a snack. The staff were very friendly, although not very fast. The view was spectacular. A good place to go for a meal and snack.

We ate here a few times when we visited Monsaraz. The view and the sunset is breathtaking. Great spot for a snack, lunch, or dinner.
