My Story

Welcome To Jardim do Castelo

Hi, my name is Marissa; nature lover, enthusiastic foodie and living together with Robert – my friend for life – we left the Netherlands in 2009 in search for our happiness in a new place. Portugal stole our hearts from the beginning.

Opening my Copos & Petiscos restaurant in Alandroal, our lovely village in the Alentejo, was one of my dreams.

The common thread in Jardim do Castelo is all about taste, homemade & local food, hospitality, originality, attention to small things and feeling at home.

Whether for brunch, lunch, (shared) dinner or to celebrate an important occasion, we are here for you.

See you soon!!

Welcome to Jardim do Castelo

Sharing and Enjoying!

In the same way that our dishes are both familiar and new,

new choices to challenge your taste
buds. Homemade dishes from locally-sourced ingredients,
