This restaurant was one of the rare ones open on a slow October Monday night in Evora and was recommended by our hotel. Therefore, because it was one of the few open, the line was long and the wait about 30 minutes but worth it. It has a rustic and very local feel to it, very friendly, warm and inviting. The food was very good, great local wine and the price very reasonable. We had a good meal and were pleased with the experience. Please take note that they only accept cash, no credit card.

This restaurant wasv recommended by the desk in Moov hotel, which is only about a hundred yards away. We liked it so much, we returned the next night!
I thought the food was very good, the house wine excellent and the service acceptable, although it is almost always crowded.I tried the Loin of Beef with coffee sauce, which I thought was delicious.My wife had Bacalhau one night, which was delicious but very filling, and the Salmon the next night, which she loved.One warning: don't both order he mushrooms for starters - the portions are enormous!
Be sure to book in advance - even then, you may have to wait a few minutes, but it's worth it!

We arrived for lunch and the server (owner??) Wasn't pleased to see us. We were 9 and he said there was no place despite having two free large round tables. We said it was on to be placed in two separate tables as they were continuous so no big harm.
He then said it would take a bit of time. Always with his unfriendly look.
We left.

Arrived here around 9 pm one night and had to wait rather a long time to get a table. The restaurant was full.
The interior is quite nice and staff is friendly.
We found the food to be of very good quality (though a bit salty) and reasonably priced.
Would go again!

We just walked in from the street on a mid week day in September 2016 without a booking. We believe booking is essential on the weekends.
We had Pork and Beef dishes which were cooked to our liking and the recommended wine was excellent.
This restaurant is a little out of the way but well worth the visit.
