Generally very good

Bit overprized for the offer. A respectful effort to serve gourmet meals, but not quite there yet. A tip is to advice costumers to link entrees, appetizers and dessert, just like each meal is a story with introduction, middle and conclusion. A restaurant is not a fine dinning or gourmet just by... read more

We have been a number of times to Tomar and have struggled to find a nice place with good food and good service. This place has what we are looking for when dining out. The restaurant is super clean, very nicely decorated, the waitress was attentive and happy to do what she does. The food was different and very good.... More

We had been to this restaurant in March and had a very bad experience. We decided to give it another opportunity and went back last Saturday. Bad idea! It was even worst than before. They were short of employees but kept accepting reservations. The owner and Chef was personally attending the tables and had a temporary apprentice in the kitchen.... More

Despite being recommended by the travel guides, (or perhaps because..?), this restaurant does not serve good food. The arroz with duck was bland and lacking much of its key ingredient, the salad was overly salted and our wine was bitterly unpleasant. The waitress was charming, as was the decor, but that couldn't redeem the place.

Food is of a good standard but above average prices for Tomar. Asked for house wine but was advised it was only available at lunchtime.. Strange as we saw a Portuguese couple sharing a carafe of red. Be warned the wine list is overpriced.

It was a nice night, so we ate in the garden. It was so extremely poorly lit, that we could barely read the menu ( we both have excellent eye sight). We were not really hungry so we chose a pasta dish. We didn't eat any of the small snacks provided; bread, olives, prawns ('couverts'), even asked them to remove... More

This is an attractive recently reburbished restaurant with a charming garden. The tables are laid with nice glasses and crisp linen. Unfortunately, the food does not measure up. A plate of bitter olives marinated with orange peel, two pieces of corn bread and some dry, tasteless seeded bread were eventually placed on the table. For starters we ordered carpaccio of... More

While it can be a bit pricey than most stops in Tomar it has wonderful food and an attentive staff. They sometimes do lunch specials that can keep you within budget. A fine place for a special occasion - the fresh fish is wonderful.

Well, it could have been a bit weird as we were the only people in the restaurant today (Christmas Day) but it didn't matter a bit as the food was so excellent. I had venison and my partner had baby goat. Preceded by glasses of port and mushroom soup, followed by a selection of puddings. With an Alentejo wine and... More
