We were a group of 12 people that drove for 2 to 3 hours to taste local traditional food and I couldn't be happier. Good food, delicious local desserts and reasonable priced. The rooms and the atmosphere is a quaint portrait of little traditional houses in Alentejo hamlets.

I visited this restaurant because my fiancé from Porto raved about this establishment. The restaurant is very traditional and would recommend to any foreigner near by! I tried almost all the entree and their specialty chicken and "cachaço"! Quality taste and a definite 10! Atmosphere: 10/10 Food: 10/10 Cleanliness: 10/10 Friendliness: 10/10 Decorations (traditional): 10/10 A MUST TRY!

It´s small, it´s warm but it´s also a very nice spot with good tradicional food from Alentejo. You must reserve, because the restaurant only have 6 tables. The staff are quite warm and nice

From "migas" to "carne de alguidar", everything cooked to perfection. A little bit too much on the grease but a top notch alentejana food. Far from Elvas but the food truly compensates the trip. Coming back for sure next time I'm around.

The restaurant is very nicely located, just at the side of a little chapel. The best tables are the two ones outside (we have been happy to have one), in the shadow of the wall of the house, looking at the square surrounded with white houses and plantations (magnific bougainvillée nearby). But the interior is also fine, beautiffully decorated with... More

Taberna Do Adro is a place in which you can eat traditional food and taste Alentejo dishes cooked with great passion and based on genuine products. We started with a mix of appetizers and then have eaten a fantastic chicken and delicious pork with 3 different types of "migas". The Alentejo wine suggested was very good and we have finished...

This place is a typical tavern. They only have 4-5 dishes but they do them perfectly. The starter cold cuts are excellent and don't forget to ask if you can taste a few of the desserts and they will give you a nice mixture of them. At the end we enjoyed talking a bit with the owner. He explained to... More

Not easy to find but well worth the effort if you want the experience of eating in a "typical" small family run restaurant. Very little choice but everything delivered with care and affection. Probably worth booking as very small. Local ginger liqueur was new to us! Great coffee.

My boyfriend already knew this place and because we were staying in a hotel in Elvas thought this would be a good place to eat. We tried it for lunch but it was already full (it seats around 20 people inside and 8-10 outside) we booked a table for dinner. Be aware that they do not have an ATM machine... More

It was like eating at grandmother's house (she was a fantastic cook.) Tiny restaurant, I counted 9 tables, I suggest you make a reservation. Hidden away next to the only small church in the village. It offers simple, authentic, tasty local food in a warm, friendly ambience that takes you back to those days when life was unhurried and peaceful.... More
