Considered one of the best restaurants in Évora, this traditional restaurant offers a feast for one´s palate. Among its most famous dishes include the 'Quail with paio Ovos' and 'Pies galinha'. As a main course, one can try the the 'Borrego Assado forno not' the 'Lombinhos of Javali with applesauce' and 'Convento da Cartuxa partridge'. For dessert, be sure to try the 'Queijadas Evora'. The Restaurant also has fine Portuguese wines to offer customers.
The cataplana fish was very good and the terrace was nice. Careful when you sit at the table, there is bread, cheese, olives, and they don´t ask you if you ordered it. IF you don´t want it, tell them no, or else they charge you.
The Restaurant Vauban is a different place to enjoy different food, in Évora. It's a learning place, let me explain. This Restaurant is located in a School that provides Professional Courses, and one of them is a Technical Course to learn how to cook, how to prepare food and how to present your food properly on the plate, and also how to serve at tables. And the people that study that course are the people who serve you and cook for you when you go to that Restaurant. So, as you can imagine, you'll get to eat really fancy food, so nicely presented, and in a small quantity. They get inspired by the Portuguese food and also try to create different ideas, and the combination is amazing. I went there one day for lunch, and I'm not the kind of person who enjoys this refined and exaggerated things, but the food was really yummy! So delicious, and the deserts... oh my! So if you'd like to go and try something different, please visit this Restaurant, you'll find it in the "EPRAL Building, Urbanizaçao da Muralha". I hope you like it!
The Café Alentejo, next to Évora's central square, is a good option for regaining your strength midway through a city tour. The menu is not very varied, but it does contain all the typical Alentejo specialties worth tasting. As is tradition in Portugal, the portions are plentiful, so be careful or you'll end up with leftovers.
