    Luxury restaurants: Gorgeous Setting for a Meal

    by dcwizard Written Jul 12, 2005
    Dine in the Cloister of the Former Monestary

    Set in the cloister of a former monestary, the restaurant in the Convento dos Loios pousada is a delight.

    Favorite Dish: A good selection of traditional Portuguese favorites and a great wine list. The selection at the morning breakfast buffet left more to be desired, but a top notch choice for dinner.

    Jardim do Paco: An Extremely Relaxing Spot

    The Seating Area As Seen From the Roman Ruins

    This day had been a long drive from the Algarve, followed by a bit of an experience driving around the many streets of Evora to find our accommodations! By the time we finally made it to the centre of beautiful Evora, we were thankful that it was a sunny and hot day. However, at the same time, once we had passed through the portals of the ancient walls, we were ready to just sit down for a while to chill out and enjoy where we were at that moment in time!

    Favorite Dish: Immediately next door to the ruins of the Roman columns, we were very fortunate to stumble upon the Jardim do Paco restaurant. It was so pleasant to sit under the shade of their huge courtyard trees while we sipped on a cold Imperial beer (E1) and a vinho verde (E4). Following this quick refreshment, we ventured forth for a proper walking tour of the city. However, the afternoon did not seem to be getting any cooler, so we eventually retired to this site once again. This time we also enjoyed a light snack of 'Tosta de queijo' or toasted cheese sandwiches (only E1.90 each). In theory, this restaurant was nothing 'extra special', but we really enjoyed its relaxed atmosphere, sitting outside under its shady trees and savouring its very friendly service! One of our most pleasant memories!
