Restaurants and Cafés
The façade of the restaurant draws our attention – blue wall, white trim with a red awning, red window frames – and invites us in. The inside is colourful and attractive: an entrance hall with a terracotta tiled floor, ceiling made of wood and reeds, walls in beige and ox-blood red, wooden tables with cotton individual table mats, and at the back side by side stand the bar and the fish display case; and the patio with tables, benches and wooden columns, removable cover (open in the summer), rustic décor based on regional crafts and a friendly atmosphere, relaxed and cheerful. It is located in a narrow street perpendicular to the one that comes from the entrance to the centre of Vila Nova de Milfontes (on the right hand side, before the Tourist Office and GNR).
The cuisine is simple, but very well prepared, based on fresh produce, loyal to the tradition of Portugal and Alentejo. For starters there are delicious appetisers, dogfish in tomato sauce, fried moray eel, pipis (or chicken livers/(offal) and the unavoidable small salads: octopus, fish roe, whelks, pig’s ear). The main dishes include charcoal-grilled bacalhau, Alentejo açorda (with bacalhau), deep fried strips of cuttlefish, migas with pork meat, carne de porco à alentejana and charcoal-grilled fish, such as robalo sea bass, gilthead bream, sargo, which exists all year round and sardines and mackerel in summer – and grilled meats, such as pork fillets, Alentejo pork secretos and veal chops. Traditional and regional desserts with sericaia and the sweet of the house are two specialities. A selection of Alentejo wines with a few from other regions. Efficient and friendly service!

Charcoal-grilled bacalhau is most clients’ favourite and the choice is justified with the fish steak, squashed roast potatoes and the hot olive oil with garlic and pepper, everything excellent.
The outdoor room is cheerful, full of natural light and a very relaxed atmosphere that all together make you want to stay there. A real patio that invites you to enjoy yourself with others or alone.
