Fodor's Expert Review Casa do Forno

$ Monsaraz Portuguese

At the entrance of this popular restaurant is a huge, rounded oven with an iron door, hence the name (forno is Portuguese for "oven"). Picture windows line the dining room and afford a spectacular view over the rolling plains. The Alentejan menu appropriately features roasts; one special dish worth trying is the borrego assado no forno (roast lamb prepared according to an ancient recipe of the nearby monastery).
