Stopped in Estremoz on a recent trip in Portugal. The restaurant was a TA recommendation and didn't disappoint. We got a table outside on a lovely night. Be careful however there is a bar next door, and they often have a tv on the wall...More

Thank you very much for your review. Sorry for the noise of the neighbor's tv, but unfortunately we can not do anything about this. The stronger color of the puree should be the sweet potato, which is orange. We hope you will return soon. Best...More

Had a wonderful lunch here. It's a small place and the tables are a bit on the small side, so it doesn't get a top mark as far as comfort is concerned but the food made up for it. I would gladly go back, maybe...More

Mandatory visit! Won't say anything else - just visit the Merceary, and if you're lucky, reserve a table and enjoy a fusion of the new techniques with the best regional tastes.

It's unusual to find such a trendy eatery in an Alentejo town. It has a great atmosphere and you sit surrounded by racks of wine and attended by young, friendly and enthusiastic staff. The food was excellent with unusual choices but all beautifully cooked and...More

We decided to stop in Estremoz for lunch and this was the place that Tripadvisor indicated for us. We didn't try the wine, but the food is excellent. We had "Nosso Bacalhau", "Bife Da Casa" and "Arroz Cremoso de Cogumelos". The Bacalhau and Bife were...More

Second time we've eaten in this great Estremoz restaurant. The food is excellent, especially the desserts (as good as I've had anywhere) and the wine list is fantastic with a huge range of Alentejo wines in particular.

Hi, it's a bit uphill. I didn't try walking but it should take about 20 minutes (but I'm not sure). We had our car.
