During a weekend trip to Montemor-o-Novo we realized some other friends would also be there. One of them knew this restaurant and we made plans for dinner. What we didnt know was that our friend knew the owners, Céu and José. Upon arrival I was felt at home. My grand-parents were from Alentejo and this restaurant has the atmosphere and even the smell of a typical Alentejo home. We had the pleasure of being joined for dinner by Céu and José, the nicest people. But the food, oh the food!!!! We had torresmos and cheese and paio and olives and Gaspacho as starters. The Gaspacho has apples, I had two dishes!!! Then, for main courses, Frutos Secos de Cação (the most delicious soup) and Migas com Carne de Alguidar. We felt like we'd have to roll out of there but apparently the chocolate mousse is a speciality and for those like me who don't like chocolate, the Amêndoa and Mel cake will take you to heaven. We're seriously considering on making it a monthly trip to this restaurant less than an our away from Lisbon
