“Lovely traditional restaurant, with unobtrusive service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

This restaurant was the last of three we visited on our trip to Evora. It was quite a formal Portuguese restaurant with a lovely formal dining atmosphere. The starters for which they are renowned were excellent and varied, and they normally put a selection out for you which you have to pay for. However if you don't like any of them you can ask for it to be taken away, and others to be brought for you. The wine list was really good as well. When we went on a Friday evening it was full, and they were turning people away so my advice is book ahead. Our main courses were delightful, my husband had the Hare rice, which he loves and has had many times before, helpfully though they did very gently ask him if he knew it was made with the blood of the Hare, well he did but I thought it was a nice touch for them to ask. We had a nice bottle of wine and port and a very nice evening.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

We went here for my fathers 75th birthday. It is his favorite restaurant in the world and it was wonderful. They handled a 22 person party like it was 4 and the food was incredible. Great food, excellent service, authentic cuisine.

“Good traditional Portuguese meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

One of very few restaurants open in Évora for Sunday dinner. Very good traditional Portuguese meal, excellent bottle of Alentejo wine recommended by our waiter based on our taste in wine as we described it to him, helpful server. A little expensive, atmosphere a bit sedate for my taste, and I personally prefer cuisine with a bit more contemporary twist. That is not a criticism - it's just personal taste.
