“Stylish place, friendly staff, excellent food!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We were served by a very nice guy who explained the menu to us. We had the roast octopus and shrimp and asparagus risotto, followed by chocolate cake. A reasonably priced local wine was recommended and all in all, we had a great meal.

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

A really good restaurant, friendly welcoming, and good advice on the menu ! The Bife Atum, the Gambas Curry the Tuna Steak and the most local meal, the Planalto were tasteful and well cooked ! In addition, the price / ratio quality is really honest. A restaurant you should absolutely try in Evora !

“Enjoyed it!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Great spot. Hip atmosphere with a contemporary twist to Portuguese food. Super helpful staff. Generous wine pour. Had the potato salad tapas, baked cheese appetizer and curry shrimp for lunch. Followed it with delicious chocolate cake!

“Best Dinner Experience in Portugal”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Chose this restaurant based on local recommendations & Tripadvisor reviews. When travelling we make every attempt to eat the country's regional cuisine, however after a week of bland & tasteless food we reluctantly prepared to give it one more shot. We were not disappointed!!!!
On arrival, the owner greets and seats everyone. He is welcoming, engaging & a passionate about the area. The tapas style dishes on the table (carrots with garlic & gazpacho) were excellent. Further appetizer selections of garlic mushrooms and warmed cheese with berries were excellent as well. Entree's asparagus/scampi risotto & beef cutlet with garlic & coriander in papillotte (first place to ask how we liked our beef cooked...med. rare) were also excellent.
Excellent wine selection and after discussions with the owner we were pleased with his recommendation. The owner was excited that we could taste the different olive oils used and after dinner provided 3 sample bottles for tasting and discussion. Too full for dessert, he insisted we try his "special brandy" which he refilled a second time & DID NOT CHARGE US FOR THE BRANDY!!!
All in all this was the best dinner we had during our 17 days in Portugal. The flavours were fantastic, the service was beyond excellent and the food was right up there with the service. If I could rate this 6 star, I would.
Thank you, Antonio for a wonderful culinary experience in Portugal!!
