Alentejo Gastronomy - favourite places to eat & drink!

The Alentejo has always been one of the regions of Portugal whose gastronomic tradition has always had a strong personality and identity.

If you are in Alentejo, you should definitely try our favourite places to eat & drink in the most traditional restaurants in the region:

In Portalegre, we highlight is the “Solar do Forcado” restaurant, or chef Júlio Vintém’s “Tomba Lobos” restaurant, with genuine signature cuisine.

In Estremoz, our reccomendation is Mercearia do Gadanha, by Chef Michele. A restaurant and grocery store with a fine selection of wines and flavours from Alentejo region, that are cooked in a traditional style, yet with a contemporary twist. And for a really typical experience, try Venda Azul.

 In Évora, our favourite ones are Fialho Restaurant and Taberna Típica Quarta-Feira. Both very traditional and show casing the best gastronomy of Alentejo.

 In Costa Vicentina, we recommend Lamelas in Porto Covo, Porto das Barcas in Vila Nova de Mil Fontes, and A Barca Tranquitanas in Zambujeira do Mar.
