Fodor's Expert Review Fialho

$$$ Évora Portuguese Fodor's Choice

The charming elderly owner, Amor Fialho, is the third generation of Fialhos to operate this popular restaurant. He has handed off daily operations to his children, Helena and Rui, but he's still present most evenings in the kitchen, and has been known to give foreign visitors a tour, pointing out photos of the former Spanish king's visit. The dining room, with a beamed ceiling and painted plates hung on its walls, is regularly packed on weekends, and reservations are essential. Fialho's renowned specialties are borrego assado (roasted lamb) and perdiz à convento da cartuxa (roast partridge with potatoes and carrots), made according to a recipe from a nearby monastery.
