Only seats 10 at a counter. Run entirely by owner and a lady that I assume is his spouse who is the chef. Extensive selection of wine. Small but outstanding menu. We had local delicacy black pig ham to start, steak with mushroom sauce and lamb chops with potato chips and an excellent salad accompanied by a medium priced Alentejo.... More

Everything fresh and home made. Portuguese kitchen at its very best! And over a hundred Portuguese wines. Just love it.

What can happen on a counter that seats only about a dozen of people? A lot. Specially if you are eager to try the traditional recipes from Alentejo executed with maestria. Who else could dare to avoid opening his own restaurant on weekends and holidays if not the best?

I don't know about the other restaurants in Evora but the Boutequim da Mouraria gets our vote for number one. Rather than repeat what all the others beforehand wrote, I would pretty much affirm the same. My wife Michele and I arrived first in line 30 min before it's opening at 19:00. We struck up a talk with the French... More

Botequim da Mouraria is a very unique restaurant. It is small, there are only 9 seats at the counter. You are served by the very nice owner Domingos and the meals are prepared by his wife. The food is very good and also the appetizers.

This is not just dining, it is a very unique experience. The restaurant is run by a husband and wife team, he manages the bar area where the 9 clients sit to eat and she cooks the amazing food. They open at 9, Mon - Friday so you must arrive early to ensure a seat. The owner brings the bread... More

Wonderful food, delicious wine thoughtful service with a smile and interesting company. What more could you ask? I had the mushrooms and black pork which was so tender and tasty. I also sampled the baked cheese which was amazing and the veal steak -melt in the mouth tender. Such a smiling host and other international guests, including some wine experts... More

We saw this restaurant was ranked #1 in Evora as well as being listed in our Michelin guide, and since it was nearly next door to our air bnb , we thought we should give it a try. The first night, all nine seats were full, so we came early the next night and were the first ones there at... More

This is the best place to eat in Evora by far... if you can get in! There are only 9 seats in this cozy restaurant. The food is served and cooked with love by the chef and his wife. Dress well since he takes a picture of every customer to go on his records. Also be prepared to get desert.... More

We were blessed to have been able to eat here twice, there are only 9 or 10 seats.The veal was sensational, we sat beside an Italian who said it was the best veal of his life and we are in complete agreement. The black pork the previous evening was one of the tastiest things I have ever eaten, glorious.Dom and... More
