Portuguese Restaurant
“The unhurried cuisine is one of its strong points. Everything is made on the spot, which is ascertained by way of the quality of the moist tomato or coriander rice. The wine cellar with over a thousand bottles, especially from Alentejo and Douro, deserves our attention. Emblematic dish :The prawn açorda, made with yesterday’s bread to honour tradition, with the herbs that Alentejo cuisine dictates. The egg yolk is served raw and by mixing it into the dough with coriander and garlic, the dough and the egg become creamy. The queen of the desserts is sericaia but homemade chocolate mousse and crème caramel competently summon up the kitchens of the past. The service is friendly and eficiente. ”

“Amazing tipical Alentejo food for a very reasonable price. Be bold and try the Percebes as a start and "Caldeirada" for the main dish (fish stew)”

“The food and the views! This is THE best place to eat out in Vila Nova. Not the cheapest but the best. The menu is varied and truly fresh, flavoursome and delicious. Good wine list too. The service is lovely. The hostess Sofia is lovely and the chef gifted. Sit outside and just relish the moment. And your dinner! ”
