Food & Meals

Our orchard and vegetable garden provide organically grown fruit and vegetables for delicious pastries, marmalades and prepared dishes, that can be enjoyed at breakfast or dinner, which may be ordered on request.

Our cuisine in the main leans towards traditional local, Portuguese and Mediterranean home cooking style food and relies as much as possible on home-grown and local ingredients.  We provide a set three-course menu that may vary according to the time of the year, perfectly complemented by the excellent wines of Alentejo.
