Following the recommendations of the staff made sense considering the size of the plates. The main as well as dessert were shared between two. Honest and friendly service.

We chose this (mid range) restaurant for lunch having driven from Lisbon and were hungry. It was one of the first we saw as we drove into town and it turned out to be a good choice. The food (Migas de Fava and de Esparagos with pork and chorizo) were delicious as was the Febras Grelha, washed down with a... More

If you want very good typical food from the Alentejo region, you must go here. It's a very good restaurant, with a lot of variation of migas (a recipe with vegetables mixed with bread), very good lamb and pork meat. And you must drink the Monte da Ravasqueira wine. And the desserts! WOW!

The best restaurant in Arraiolos with a large menu including the most delicious local gastronomy. Portions are large and price very competitive. Our waiter was Pedro, with a professional and friendly service.

We try to lunch in this restaurant, but it was full, we try to reserve for dinner and we have a really nice dinner. The food was great and the waiters was really nice. We recommend it, but don't forget to reserve before going there.

I come to this restaurant whenever I am in the vicinity - sometimes I even travel all the way from Lisbon. Very honest food, full of regional flavors, at a more than reasonable price. A must for those who wish to sample southern Portuguese cuisine at a high level

Food was ok and desserts were delicious but perhaps our experience wasn't as good because of the table we were given. We were at the back of the restaurant, next to the kitchen; it was noisy and the smell of cleaning products was strong.

During my stay in Alentejo was the most typical restaurant found. The plates are very typical and well prepared, good service and the environment gives a feeling of being on Alentejo. If near Arroiolos this is a restaurant to visit. Each plate is enough for more than one person, so we were 5 and order only 4 plates even so... More
