Situated in a former 17th century Moorish palace, Restaurant Casa do Alentjo is popular simply because of the atmosphere and surroundings.
Once a palace, it’s since been used as a school, casino and now a restaurant. Locals come to relax here, play cards and read a newspaper. Cultural events are also held on premises from time-to-time.
There’s stunning outdoor courtyard with brightly colored tile mosaics, palm trees and a fountain.
The interior has walls adorned with murals, stained glass windows and high ceilings. There’s even a ballroom.
They serve traditional Portuguese fare with a focus on the Alentejo region.
