This is a simple restaurant but the food was very good quality, tasty and with generous portions. Staff very attentive and able to communicate in English and French. Prices were correct. We will certainly come back when visiting Arraiolos again.

O Alpendre

Reviewed By davin - ottawa

Best choice in Arriaolos. As mentioned before they put several dishes on the table but you only pay for them if you want them. We sent them all back. Started with the tomato soup which we can rave about as well. Really enough for a meal but you can definetly share this . We then shared the mixed meat dish.which was very tasty. Staff were pleasant .To full for dessert . A great meal and a lovely evening worth a very visit.

you can have a nice soup and a warm dish of food for 6 eur, the place is small with only one lady doing everything so don't expect luxury, just helpful family style service

O Forjador

Reviewed By joe1968 - Ulm, Germany

If you are looking for a local spot with local people and local simple cheap food this is your place. The huge bar in the entrance hall looks impressing so the local people sitting at the bar eating petiscos and drinking beer do!
However you need to know that there is no menu, the waiter speaks only Portuguese and Spanish and you have only a choice of 3 or 4 meat dishes. Our "Arroz de Pato" was ok but a bit dry - it was precooked and just put shortly to oven with cheese and chorizo. Our neighbour's meat dishes also looked like from a big pot cooked all day long (porco), the only "fresh" things what they do is fries and salad...
We got a bill of 7€ per "menu" which is just still acceptable for the offered food (and the area next to highway)
The problem in Alentejo is really that usualy you only find overpriced tourist traps (who carge for the same warmed-up stuff 15€ and more) or such local places which are quite simple but nothing special.

Very cheap restaurant in the main square. We were always very well tended for. The cook even made a special soup for our 3 year old.

Restaurante o Parque Dos Leitoes

Reviewed By catherine r - New York City, New York

A lovel and large restaurant with a great menu and daily specials at a price that cannot be beat: 4.80 euros for a main course of either meat or fish! The tomato soup is a Mai dish served in its own cork lined tureen with local bread and choricou. The migas and pork secretes are brought out in a roof tile. Very original. Although the restaurant specializes in suckling pig one can really enjoy other dishes as well.
The restaurant also has a separate cafe snack shop with 24-hour toilet open for truckers, campers.

Wine'arte

Reviewed By MichaelWinnerRIP - York, United Kingdom

Sometimes, all too rarely, I find a restaurant so exceptional that I have difficulty starting a review. We found Wine'arte on our first afternoon in Arriolos and never looked back.
This small restaurant/wine/tapas bar is run with love and passion by José and Bela, producing outstanding Portuguese cuisine. The menu is in Portuguese only but don't be put off; both Bela and José speak English well and explained everything very carefully. In the end, realising the obvious passion that they bring to their art, we left them to choose what to feed us.
Over five (yes, five) nights we were treated to a veritable adventure in Portuguese cooking, ranging from stunningly tasty dog-fish (like shark) to beautifully cooked local pork, with amazingly original tapas to start.
Bela is an artist in the kitchen and every plate was a delicious surprise.
There is a plentiful selection of inexpensive local Alentejo wines - just leave José to guide you.
When Bela discovered that The Blonde is lactose intolerant, she baked special dairy-free desserts and puddings.
I don't think we were treated particularly specially; Bela and José look after all their customers in this wonderful and passionate way. We can't wait to return.

Pizzaria Giovanni

Reviewed By JPaschoal - Cascais, Lisboa, Portugal

I went with my son for a different experience (I made my peace with pork, but too much was driving me crazy), so we went to this nice surprise. The owner is extremely nice, he vene seats at your table in the end to give you the check. You gotta love a nice Italian accent and a good tasty pizza. I didn't love the sangria (my husbands one is thought to beat, it seems - but they didn't charge me). I do recommend and I would go back. Haven't taste the regional food in here, so can't reviewon that. Worth a visit for a nice Italian meal and with an amazing view from the Terrace. We got to watch the sunset and it was amazing.

Restaurante o Gingao

Reviewed By MichaelWinnerRIP - York, United Kingdom

We sat outside in the town square watching the evening unfold. Arraiolos is that sort of place. We enjoyed the local vinho verde as well as the local beer. Feeling a little peckish and seeing what others were doing, we chose some little chicken pies - what a discovery! Although we've been visiting Portugal for some years, these delicacies had passed us by; no longer!
