Dornes is a very pretty town on the Zezere river just before it turns into the lake caused by the Castelo do Bode damming. This restaurant bar will make your visit to Dornes complete. It has a very pretty setting and is in a very cute old building that reminds very much of a tavern with in a seperate dining area a country style restaurant room. The terrace is lovely for warmer days and has plenty of shade on hot days.
Elvira and her husband run this restaurant bar in Dornes with a lot of passion, caring about the food and making everything themselves. They serve fresh and often self caught river fish, river langoustines (when in season) and bake their own local pastries of which Elvira’s Dornes donuts are the most famous.
They also serve meat dishes such as tenderloin Dornes style, Migas and other regional delicacies.
Elvira is a certified restaurant manager and a more than capable cook. Price / quality balance is very high.
If you just want to use the terrace to have a drink, a pastry or a snack your also very welcome.
