Stopped in Cuba on the way to the coast. TripAdvisor told us to go to this lovely restaurant in this small town. We were greeted by this super nice waitress. She took good care of us by recommending what to eat and always looking that we had what we needed. Even the other local guests where nice and friendly with... More

What to say? Everything is how it's supposed to be. Great service even better food, good price. The food takes time to arrive but you're in Alentejo, it should be like that! The small patio is a great place to eat when the sun is burning. Dog friendly, always a plus! I'm sure I'll return

If you are a foreign and you want to taste the real "Local Food " (comida Alentejana), this is the place to come. CASH only, no credit cards accepted , because they don't have the machine. It's not in Beja city, but it's nearby (Cuba-Alentejo ) It's not expensive and it's very, very good :)
