A good place to change from typical portugueuse cuisine, you still have very traditional (balcalhau com broa, carne com mustarde) but also vegetarian and indian recipes. Very nice atmosphere and good music providing a very nice ambiance. Perfect timing to be served with gentle waiter or owner. A good place in Leiria to try, near the center place so easy... More

Cozy ambiance, Indian or Portuguese dishes, only freshly made. Some vegetarian meal are available, I would recommend Portuguese dishes which are very tasty.

Strolling trough the small streets of old Leiria we discovered this small Indian restaurant (but serving also Portuguese food). It is located on the first floor of a building in a street with lots of buildings in need of restauration. The contrast with the restaurant is surprising: an inviting entrance and a clean, cosy restaurant lightly decorated with taste. One... More

We tried a portuguese speciality and was very good, but have, also Indian food. Highly recommended to test Portuguese cuisine. The waiter was very attentive and friendly. The price for 4 drinks, 2 starters, 2 main dishes and 2 desserts was 45€. Good value for maney. I think it may be one of the best restaurants in Leira

The list of available dishes was extremely short, so we didn't have much choice. Overall impression was ok, definitely nothing special at all, but a couple of hours later we both had a rather heavy feeling in the stomach. We suspected bacalao-either because of too much fat or because of something else. Very expensive coperto, but you can refuse it.... More

FIrst of all, it´s not an indian restaurant, even no vegetarian meals you can find there. In my perspective, this is a Restaurant (normal one) with some creative add vallue on the preparation and presentation of the meals. The service it´s quite slow, but the quality its good (normal quality for restaurants in this region of Portugal). I suggest to... More

Having read the reviews, we went to Cardamomo for lunch. It is a nice, cosy spot, with friendly professional service. The food is very different from the traditional Portuguese offerings, but it is quite good, with a touch of some class, even if a bit too bland for my taste. At about 20 euros per person, the total cost is... More

I was really eager to try this restaurant and I was not disappointed. The food is very eccletic. You'll find both indian, portuguese and vegetarian dishes on the menu, and they all seemed delicious. The service is very good, the food is excellent and you get your value for money. I certainly reccomend it.
