    Cosy little restaurant in Bairro Alto with a very nice atmosphere, very welcoming and a good service. Everything is handmade even the plates. Our waitress explained a lot and we had the possibility to try a lot of little dishes new to us. A very good way to get to know Portuguese food.

    Loved this small gem! The wait staff were very kind and patient, and didn’t let us order too much food since the dishes are so big. The food is authentic and delicious- the lamb and rice dish is amazing. Highly recommend if you’re looking for genuine Portuguese food at a great value.

    The food, ambience and service were wonderful. This was our first night in Portugal so we chose carefully and were not disappointed. We shared the lamb, and each had octopus salad, pepper salad and an amazingly delicious tomatoe and bread soup.

    Such a considerate waiter. Very helpful with excellent English. Advised us on a perfect wine. Music was typical of the region and interesting without being overpowering.

    I'm usually fairly critical about restaurants I have never been to but quite honestly there is nothing negative I can say about this place. Family-owned and amazingly delicious. A fairly small and intimate place everyone who works there made you feel like you were a part of their family. This is one restaurant that I am very much looking forward to returning. There was absolutely nothing on the menu that I wouldn't try at least twice!

About the restaurant

O restaurante Zé Varunca nasceu há mais de três décadas na bonita cidade alentejana de Estremoz. Tendo encerrado por volta dos anos 90, foi em Lisboa que perdurou, no Bairro Alto, mais concretamente na Rua de São José.

Este espaço castiço e assumidamente rústico oferece aos seus visitantes um ambiente acolhedor e descontraído, onde sabe bem ir ficando.

Com uma ementa variada e uma preocupação constante na qualidade dos produtos utilizados na confeção dos pratos, no Zé Varunca vai encontrar o melhor da cozinha tradicional alentejana.

Ideal para um almoço em família ou para um animado jantar de amigos.
