The best restaurant in Arraiolos with a large menu including the most delicious local gastronomy. Portions are large and price very competitive. Our waiter was Pedro, with a professional and friendly service.

We try to lunch in this restaurant, but it was full, we try to reserve for dinner and we have a really nice dinner. The food was great and the waiters was really nice. We recommend it, but don't forget to reserve before going there.

I come to this restaurant whenever I am in the vicinity - sometimes I even travel all the way from Lisbon. Very honest food, full of regional flavors, at a more than reasonable price. A must for those who wish to sample southern Portuguese cuisine at a high level

Food was ok and desserts were delicious but perhaps our experience wasn't as good because of the table we were given. We were at the back of the restaurant, next to the kitchen; it was noisy and the smell of cleaning products was strong.

During my stay in Alentejo was the most typical restaurant found. The plates are very typical and well prepared, good service and the environment gives a feeling of being on Alentejo. If near Arroiolos this is a restaurant to visit. Each plate is enough for more than one person, so we were 5 and order only 4 plates even so... More

I recommend "Ovos mexidos com espargos" (revolted eggs with asparagus) as a starter between a wide variety available, Then taste the fantastic Portuguese typical "Açorda Alentejana" with a huge codfish portion and/or "Massinha de peixe". All the desserts are absolutely sweet according the regional tradition. You should drink na Alentejo wine! Very good service.

Forget those stars and ranking. Here is the local one with passion. Such a warm service from the family. Each dish was just full of flavour. Ingredients were of high quality. And if you are into wine, their wine range was as well decent. God!!!! Wish I can come back here often.

Thank KwinAun
