Chão das Covas

Portuguese in Évora

Tucked away on a small plaza beside the aqueduct, this friendly, boxcar-sized eatery serves up tasty home-cooked Alentejan classics that change by day, as well as good-value petiscos (sharing plates) like fried squid, roasted peppers, cheese platters and the like. It’s a fine place to linger, with a barrel-vaulted ceiling, black-and-white photos of Évora, and terrace seating on warm days.
