    Visitors to Praia de Rocha, Marina Site in earlier years might remember the boss, Francisco.

    He no longer runs the site but has a small restaurant in Armacão de Pera (25kms from the marina). This is a fishing village and has a long beach and lots of fish restaurants so, cleverly, Francisco decided to specialise in porco preto (black pig) from the Alentejo region (where he is from).

    The "O MONTE" restaurant.

    I have eaten black pig pork all over Portugal for years but the very, very best I have ever had is served here.

    (Oh and I should let you all know... it is very affordable.)

    Excellent afternoon JJ, but I think the gentle stroll is a little exaggerated.

    Best porco preto ever JJ?? Not possible, that can only be found here at either restaurante Marreiros or restaurante O Caixeiro!

    Thanks for the heads up @JJ.

    We had a v good meal last night at O Monte. Mentioned you to Francisco, but I don't think he did anything to our food!

    We had one plate of 'flattened pork' and another of 'long rounder strips of' with salad and chips. Managed most of the bread also.

    Both dishes were excellent. Don't know the terminology but we preferred the longer strips which were succulent and very tender.

    Best black pork we have had in Portugal. Look forward to having it somewhere for a 2nd time so we can confirm Francisco's talents!
