First off, I'm emphatically not a fan of the Portuguese custom that you get appetizers brought without asking and then they cost something. Usually it's 3 euros for olives and you can say no thanks, and they take them away. With this place, we were the only customers but spent 30 minutes waiting for our drinks. What did not take...

High Quality food experience, perfectly prepared! The presentation was creative and the attention to details is superb: every grain had been deliberately placed and the flavours are to die for! Great wine list. Manager and staff were highly attentive. Very friendly service. Highly Recommended!

A bit apart from the central place of Leiria, this restaurant provides a different experience from typical Portugueuse restaurants. It offers Mexican, Curry or revisited portugueuse meals. Vegetarians dishes are also available. Portions are just enough and well presented. Good ambiance and service.

We really liked this little restaurant. I had a yummy creamy and really hot prawn curry. My husband also liked his Mexican style fish and the coffee and choc mousse. However, our kid had the children's menu, which was just battered ham with cheese and chips, and they charged 10 euros for that. Too much. The curried mussels were also... More

We chose this restaurant for an evening out because of the positive feedback on tripadvisor. The starters were very good but with the main dish things went downhill fast. The staff recomended the steak with foie gras sauce. The steak was overcooked and the sauce lacked in flavour. Overall not bad, but not up to our expectations.

I enjoyed dining at this restaurant and consider it solidly good with touches of excellence. As I write, it is the top-rated Leiria restaurant on TripAdvisor but I find it hard to believe that it could really be the best in town. The ambience is pleasant and well suited for a romantic meal. Some starters I had were good and... More

Just love this place, very cosmopolitan. I recommend it to everyone I meet! It's small with an intimate ambiance; wonderful service and delicious food, excellent wine and all at a very reasonable price for the quality. This restaurant actually has vegetarian food on the menu - that's not easy to find in Portugal! Great location for couples and small groups... More

The only restaurant of its kind in Leiria, nowhere else can you get such a diversity of flavours of the World: from Asia to South America, passing through Italy or Denmark, there is a lot to make you want to return and try "just another"... Also, if you're a fan of Caipirinha, Mojito or Strawberry Marguerita (be sure to order... More
