At the Basilii, you can savour the Alentejo flavours with an extra touch of sophistication. The restaurant’s name pays homage to the prominent family that used to live in the estate’s Roman villa, whose ruins are just a few metres away from the hotel, but also evokes basil, the aromatic herb. The Basilii will take you on a journey through the best Alentejo delicacies. Whether you are staying at the Torre de Palma Wine Hotel or just want to taste Alentejo dishes prepared by our Chef, Filipe Ramalho, the Basilii awaits you. 

Check out the menu and surrender to the inviting flavours.
