dining in estremoz


Bifanas Estremoz – One of our favourite spots and exactly what it says on the tin!

Bifanas Estremoz, bar and restaurant, specialises in bifanas: thinly sliced pork cooked in garlic and a little paprika, and served in a local bread roll with mustard on the side – with or without fries. A great stop-off for visitors and if you haven’t tried a bifana yet, served up and down the length of Portugal, then here is a good place to start.

There are plenty of cafés and restaurants to try in Estremoz ranging from busy snack-bar places that are always packed-out with locals to more pricy ‘special occasion’ venues—and everything in between. Most are located in the two distinct parts of the town: the streets of the old town that radiate out from the castle and those of the ‘new’ town that lead off from the main Rossio Marquês de Pombal square.
