We went there recommended by friends. It is an old oil mill, and keep the furniture and decoration. Food is good. I recommend bacalhau and porc ribs. Moderate price.

went to Sem Fim with family and friends and overall, again, a great experience. this time we've tried the gazpacho with nephrops and it was delicious. also the octopus and bull stew were 5*. very friendly service, the restaurant continues to be a great experience also due to the facilities, decor and views.

A treat in Telheiro Having read the reviews after we went, I was somewhat surprised by the negative ones. We had a wonderful time. Our waiter, I forgot to ask his name, recommended some great white wine – Joaquim Madeira – from the region and the people at the table next to us recommended our choice of food. The beef... More

We booked in the afternoon no problem and returned at 7.30 pm to be told they had no fish, no beef, no chicken, no mushrooms and no wine other than the most expensive bottle (in Alentejo?) It was Tuesday so being told they ran out at the weekend is not good enough - it is a 20min drive to 2... More

We booked a table for four for my wife's birthday but at the time of booking, in the early afternoon prior to the meal, we were not informed that much of the menu was off due to a busy weekend!!! Having consulted the menu online prior to booking there was everything to suit our various preferences including chicken and beef... More

You shocked by the interior at the first moment then you realize that you are in an old olive oil factory with all the pressing machines. Then you notice the artworks done by the owner who is the well known artist in Alentejo,and the garden and the bar and the beautiful atelier... You will never forget this experience. Plus the...

Spent four weeks in Telheiro and what can I say. Local cantina, good beer. Food excellent, regional and local produce. Service Alentejo style...warm welcoming and relaxed. In addition to the bar and food..olive oil museum and art gallery. If you are ever in the area do not miss. Oh and they also have a sail boat taking trips out to... More

This place is from far the most unique and original restaurant to go in Monsaraz. I had an amazing suckling pig and a gazpacho tonight. The wine was also really good as for the art gallery. This is a must in Alentejo.

Después de buscar y rebuscar una mesa libre en Montsaraz este restaurante de Telheiro fué una salvación. Comedor con mucho encanto, antigua fábrica de aceite. Servicio agradable, hablan español perfectamente. Gazpacho enorme con sardinas o con jamón, buenísimo! Y los postres también! Si estás en Montsaraz pasa del resto y prueba el Sem Fim. This restaurant was a very pleasant... More

The restaurant venue was unique (rare), a converted olive press factory with original tracks and presses. There was also a gallery. The staff were fine enough, but the chicken dish wrapped in bacon was crispy on the outside and COMPLETELY RARE on the inside. I think the cod was also undercooked, but frankly after seeing the rare poultry, I was... More
