Casa do Alentejo
A hidden restaurant you won’t forget how to find, but you might get lost inside it!
Inside this multi-level palace, you will find a restaurant, banquet hall, and a couple of garden cafes that make up the Casa do Alentejo. From the street it doesn’t look like much, but once you climb the marble staircase that leads to the vaulted arch foyer nucleus, your jaw will drop. As is typical of a riad, it’s a bit of a maze to find what you came for, but just wandering through the side rooms and staircases is its own adventure. Eat in the banquet hall and you’ll drop a pretty penny, but keep it conservative in the first floor’s cafe and you won’t be sorry. On Saturdays you can expect to find choral groups from Alentejo singing canto, and on Sundays the elderly collect in the ballroom for some pre-dinner dancing starting at 15h30.
