We stopped in for lunch while driving from Evora to the Algarve. Even though salads were not on the menu, the staff gladly accommodated with two delicious mixed salads. The restaurant atmosphere is fun and staff super friendly. I'd eat here again!

I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. It's a short drive from Ourique along a quiet country road. The restaurant is literally at the end of the road. The location is peaceful and we sat outside on a lovely terrace. The waiter was really charming...More

Turned off the main road on a whim and discovered this restaurant. We only stayed for a beer during the heat of the day but the staff could not have been more helpful and kind. We will drive out this way again to eat here.
