We found this small restaurant away from the touristy centre and enjoyed a simple inexpensive lunch, with a glass of wine. Absolutely satisfactory.

Variety of food is too small, and actually some meals with different names seems is the one meal served slightly different. Fish soup Alentejana consisted mostly of vinegar. And yes, my wife also suspect that it was just microwave oven for some frozen food from supermarket. So, it's better to visit any other place. Unfortunately, there are not a lot... More

We (2) ate here at lunch, the place is small and offers a small variety of food. I have tried the "Carne de Porco á Alentejana" and it was quite average. The white wine of the house was ok. With main dish, wine, 1 shared dessert and coffe, we ended up paying around 35 euros. The place has potential, but... More

Stumbled across this place after looking for a place to eat that wasn't in the main square. The owner seemed very happy to welcome us into his empty restaurant. It is a small, no frills place that has some quaint charm to it. We ordered the "seafood for 2" and a side of fries. The fries were delicious and fresh... More

Apparently after eating there today, the waiter/owner said the credit card machine was broken (but the door says it accepts four different cards).. Then I thought it was fishy and went home to look at reviews and found that couple other review also said the machine was broken when they were there... Lol Food was OK.. Atmosphere was awkward as...

I am writing this a little after the event and don't have a clear memory of what I ate other than it was good! We did struggle to find places to eat when Momentos was closed on the Tuesday. we had a drink at Mr Pickwick but wanted to walk a little more before stopping for lunch, by which time... More

The place is pleasant, nicely furnished, warm & freindly. The food is ... well I heard a microwave in the back room and should have left but didn't want to be presumptuous. But the food proved that the microwave was the frozen food heater. My sweetie had a veal steak. It was as though it was punched out of a... More

No Cook! The Food comes right from the microwave. The shrimps and the lamb were not tasty and the opposite of delicious. In comparison to the food quality, the prices were very high. Kein Koch, die Speisen werden in der Mikrowelle warm gemacht und schmecken fad. Der Kellner kann wenig englisch, die Vorspeise (Brot, Butter, Schinken u Käse) war sehr... More

First meal in Evora based on the Routard reviews. Turned out the place was slightly overrated. We went for the pork dish served with chips and a salad with a beer. The salad and chips were ok, the meat was nice though to be honest the whole thing was more than satisfactory for the price but clearly nothing to write... More

Found this great little restaurant for lunch this week. Down a small road and only indication of this is a small hand painted sound. The owner waits on the 25 covers with huge pride and smile on his face. Exceptional traditional fare at sensible prices. A real home cooked feel. We loved the borrego no forgo (lamb in oven). Planning... More
