Fodor's Expert Review A Bolota Castanha

$$$ Elvas Portuguese

People drive miles to dine at this well-known restaurant 16 km (10 miles) from Elvas in the town of Terrugem. The owner takes pride in the cozido de grão (boiled dinner with pork, smoked sausages, cabbage, and chickpeas), but their menu also lists international dishes such as spinach with shrimp au gratin and delicious sorbets for dessert. Call ahead to book on weekends, as it's often booked solid with wedding parties.
