A Tasca do Montinho

A Tasca do Montinho

Restaurants and Cafés

It is a short and pleasant trip through the countryside from Avis to Alcórrego, a trip that leads us to one of the region’s famous restaurants, albeit with a more modest and rudimentary name: Tasca do Montinho. It is located on the road in a one-storey house painted white with a yellow trim, typical of an Alentejo village. The entrance leads into the bar, which is very cosy, with a small rooftop over the counter partially covered in brick - all the house has a terracotta tiled floor and panels of brick on the walls – wooden stools, chairs and tables. Separated by a windbreaker, the room is rustically decorated and furnished, cloth tablecloths, smooth colours and a homely, very inviting environment. 

The best part of the trip and visit is however the food made by the lady of the house, Maria José, who has been the cook since it opened. Everything she makes is excellent, from simple pancetta and sautéed mushrooms that are a permanent fixture among the starters to delicacies such as: tomato soup with fried sausages, dogfish soup, asparagus migas with fried meat, rooster rice in blood, hare rice, partridge pie or, upon request, stewed partridge, among others. The grilled meats from the Alentejo pig and lamb with asparagus migas or any other side dish of the client’s choice. The menu helps make it easy to choose given that, when you open it, there are close to a dozen “suggestions of the day”, which are almost always irresistible. Desserts, all homemade, include walnut encharcada and sericaia. The wines are mainly from Alentejo with one or two from other regions that no one orders. Friendly service!

Maria José, the lady of the house, has been the cook since the first day the restaurant opened – in April 1996 – and her cooking is highly appreciated by the clients who always return for more, whenever they can.
