I stopped here for dinner following a friend's recommendation which turned out to be true: this is the perfect restaurant to dine fresh fish, and typical Potuguese specialties in Leiria. I was in the mood for a dish made of rice and fresh fish, so I ordered arroz caldoso (rice in broth) with fish, it was almost a soup, but... More

We had a dinner in this restaurant last September. We ate local dishes served with quality like picanha as main course and some starters like sardinha. We drunk a good red wine "Vale da Mata" vintage 2009. We spent only 41€ for two people. I suggest to enjoy this family-run restaurant.

Don't get me wrong: you'll get your money worth, however (depending on what you're having) it can sometimes feel like you're paying a lot, especially if you go for the grilled fish. I consider it a bit too expensive, although you should try it at least once if you're in the neighborhood, as the typical portuguese food available is very... More

We stayed in Leiria for one night and wanted to try a typical Portuguese restaurant. This place didn't disappoint, as the food was fantastic. Although perhaps not the most ambient of environments (big bright office-type light panels on the ceiling, and a football game was on TV), this didn't take anything away from the overall experience. Typical Portuguese menu with... More

O Manel da Quiteria is a really nice, family restaurant where we usually stop for lunch whenever we travel between Porto and the South. Nice food, educated staff, very well situated in Leiria town centre, it certainly deserves a visit. Prices are really moderate.
