A landmark of the country's gastronomy in the Alentejo, with the quality of where and when innovation is never forgotten. The taste stands out in a privileged perch for lovers of Alentejo cuisine presented here with refinement and served with care.
It is worthwhile to drive to the small village of Terrugem to eat in this little jewell: Bolota da Castanha. The excellence of food is outstanding: food is tasty, crisp and freshly made. The service ias good as you can get. True, it is not exactly cheap but you must go there! Here, you rediscover the pleasure of eating!

Peço especial favor que a localização da Taberna do Adro deixe de se visualizar em Portalegre mas sim em Elvas 7350-511 Portugal, onde na realidade existe. Esta má informação está a causar grandes inconvenientes ao funcionamento do restaurante. O restante endereço está correcto. Grato pela rapidez da resolução do assunto, apresento os melhores cumprimentos.
Nice small place, decorated with taste and in rustic manner.
We had Carne de Alguidar and some fried chicken, aside of other stuff. All were very tasty. But the food is heavy, with a lot of fat. One needs to be careful about that.
The restaurant is not located in Elvas, but some 15-20 kilometers in the nearby village.

Fresh produce with quality excellence, this is our largest specialty!
My review it will be simple.....
1- El Cristo is more than a seafood restaurant....is a branch !!
2- The freshness and variety of seafood is very good.
3- The staff is very professional and friendly.
4- Deco is cosy and trendy with a great atmosphere.
5- Normally in seafood restaurants meat is not as good as the rest of menu.....but in this place the meat is just amazingly good....the " prego" is just the best I ever eat....the meat just melt in your mouth.
6- Value for money.....Oh yes !!! Do I recommend? Absolutely !!! Hummm im hungry now....A king crab from Bering Sea....Please !!!!
p.s.- Weekends or any Bank holidays i advise to book a table or else you probably have to wait....3 to 4 hours for a table !!! Is that good

In an idyllic village with a claimed record number of protected chimneys, the restaurant on the national road has a pleasant ambience, calm efficient service, very varied menu and a absolutely fabulous wine list both in terms of Alentejo wines and pricing.
Our favourites were the presunto, deer stew and the chocolate mousse; and the fact that they opened the restaurant early to allow us to watch an important football match!

Reception at our hotel recommended this restaurant and after Reading this sites reviews we ate there. Yes, the portions were large, yes they were served with chips and rice but we felt we were being refuelled rather than fed and the fuel was regular rather than premium. My Salad O Lagar came drenched in mayonaisse, please dressing separate and the rest of the meal had that "I'll be pleased when this shift is over" feeling. Fortunately the wine was more than reasonable but overall it was a forgettable experience

Really nice fish, with a great wine choice. Popular with locals or other Portuguese people. Menu available in English and lots of trad Portuguese dishes. Recommended!

Elegant restaurant with nicely varied menu featuring good selection of local food and wine, with courteous and friendly table service. The meals were well cooked and presented. And the prices were very reasonable. No criticisms whatsoever.

Really good food in a small elegant place frequented by locals. It's off by itself in a residential area about a five minute drive from the center. We found it through Trip Advisor and used GPS to get there. A good experience well worth the effort.

Soho has everything you would expect from a buffet restaurant, from a beautiful menu freshly prepared on a daily basis, excelente variety of dishes, top friendly staff, which give a lovely atmosphere to the space. I personally recommend the amazing gin cocktails personalised by barman Chico. All this surrounded by a very stylish decoration by the local designer Rui Andrade.
An expected international level for a restaurante, which offers a great value for money, located on a walking distance from the town center of Elvas.
