Thanks to a suggestion from a friend in Madrid where I live, I visited CARDAMOMO, which turned out to be a delightful experience. Excellent food, a warm welcoming owner (thanks Nuno!) and it's central location in Leiria's old town offered me an exotic and delicious final evening for my vacation in Portugal. Highly recommended, reasonable priced. ;-)

We came for two daily specials. 12 euro total. The curries were ok, not great. The naan was terrible, and the bread was at least a day old.... He wanted us to pay 28 euros in the end, because our portions were larger??? Better to go somewhere else were the service is as it is supposed to be!

We found this wandering the old town of Leiria and a neighbour in the street said good food. He was right! We had fish curry of the day and the sauce was flavourful yet did not outdo the beautiful skate, cooked to perfection. A melt in the mouth moment. Goan style cooking at its best. Desserts were delicious and the... More

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

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
