I had a chicken curry with mango. Besides the fact it was served in a nice way, it had a very rich flavour. The people with me also had a flawless meal. In this neighbourhood, it is the number one place to go.

We were planning to visit the castle at Almourol, but it was closing for lunch as we arrived. So we drove a little way looking for lunch. There are not a lot of choices in Vila Nova da Barquinha, as we looked at the menu...More

I've eaten here twice, and the Goan/Indian food is quite tasty, but I'd say overpriced by Portuguese standards. I would recommend O Ribeirinho or Tasquinha da Adelia (across the square) instead unless you're specifically looking for South Asian food.

Holidays in Tomar we decided to visit this restaurant with Portuguese friends, delicious food and an environment that takes us to travel the world. Only point to improve, the friendliness of the employee, when we asked him about the food he responded rudely and unapologetically.
