Restaurant Casa do Alentejo In Lisbon Portugal

Restaurant Casa do Alentejo In Lisbon Portugal – Estimated reading time: 7 minutes

I’ll be completely honest. I haven’t eaten a meal at Restaurant Casa do Alentjo in Lisbon. You ask “Cheryl, are you insane? Can we trust any review you’ve ever done now or will do in the future?” The answer to both of these questions is naturally, yes.

I haven’t tasted the traditional Portuguese cuisine served there and cannot tell you if the food is delicious. Nor can I offer up any pictures of the dishes. Sorry, friends – there won’t be any “food porn” in this post. I can tell you that I want to eat here, even if the food isn’t that good and the prices are outrageous. At this point, you may again question my sanity. I don’t blame you as I know it seems crazy.

Just let me tell you just why I want to eat and spend more time here someday. Newsletter

About Restaurant Casa do Alentjo

Situated in a former 17th century Moorish palace, Restaurant Casa do Alentjo’s popular simply because of the atmosphere and surroundings. Once a palace, it’s since been used as a school, casino, and now, a restaurant. Locals come to relax here, play cards, and read a newspaper. Cultural events are also held on the premises from time-to-time.

I was lucky enough to be able to do a quick inspection of the restaurant while on a walking tour. I really didn’t want to leave. I just wanted to stay for the afternoon, sip some cold vino verde, and learn more about the history of the place.

2) The average price of a three course meal here will run you about €20. The restaurant mainly serves traditional Portuguese fare, with a focus on the Alentejo region. The online reviews seem to be mixed – check out their rating on Trip Advisor.

  1. If he food is not good, at least the place looks nice. Planning holidays in Portugal? Because I am, actually (though neither the date or the exact form of the trip is yet settle) (we will probably just jump on a plane and see…)

  2. It does look like a gorgeous restaurant! I love all the tiled walls. Sucks that you didn’t get to eat there though.

  3. I would go just to check out that stunning chandelier in the games room! This place is absolutely gorgeous and while it might prove to be a serene sanctuary in the centre of the city – it’s definitely hot and sexy none the less!

  4. The palace is fantastic and the food has an excellent quality / price ratio.

    I have been fortunate to work with this wonderful restaurant and organizing various events in this space. Next February 14 will have a superb night the ’50s, with dinner and spectacle burlesque, pin ups, cigarette girls and the girl band Royalettes.

    We waiting for you. reserve [email protected]
