Restaurants and Cafés

At first sight it goes unnoticed but it is located close to the historic centre of Ponte de Sor and is one of the most emblematic restaurants of the city. It has gained in prestige since 1997, when Joaquim Godinho and his wife, Margarida Godinho, decided to open it and create an establishment offering, besides typical dishes, other dishes not quite so common in the region, examples of which are monkfish in a covered wok, (known as a cataplana), monkfish rice and pasta monkfish, seafood açorda and shrimp and bean stew for the fish dishes; pork loin and prawn skewers, small pork steak and old-fashioned Portuguese steak for the meat dishes. 

Despite the originality of some of the dishes on offer, this is a traditional Alentejo restaurant, with a small café at the entrance, rustic brickwork and a décor that focuses on the porcelain of the region.  

The cuisine is simple, well-seasoned, uses fresh produce, sticks to tradition and offers a large variety of dishes on the menu. For starters there are delicious appetizers, such as little dishes of tripe, fish roe, octopus, pig’s ear, peppers in vinaigrette sauce, pork steaks in vinaigrette sauce, stuffed mushrooms and scrambled eggs. Fast meals are based on omelettes that can be of asparagus, cheese, cured ham, York ham, chorizo sausage or prawns. The special soups on offer include Alentejo açorda, with or without bacalhau, and dogfish soup. 

The main dishes include charcoal-grilled bacalhau, asparagus migas with Alentejo pork abanicos, coriander migas with leg of pork, charcoal-grilled secretos with coriander migas, stuffed pork loin, lamb stew, tomato soup with carne de alguidar and stewed wild pigeon. Traditional and regional sweets abound, namely: chestnut jam, acorn pudding, fidalgo, tecolameco, sericaia with Elvas Plums PDO and toucinho do céu. Mostly Alentejo wines but a few from other regions too! Efficient and friendly service!
