“The best in Leiria!”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Just love this place, very cosmopolitan. I recommend it to everyone I meet!

It's small with an intimate ambiance; wonderful service and delicious food, excellent wine and all at a very reasonable price for the quality.

This restaurant actually has vegetarian food on the menu - that's not easy to find in Portugal!

Great location for couples and small groups of friends/family

“One of the best in Leiria”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

The only restaurant of its kind in Leiria, nowhere else can you get such a diversity of flavours of the World: from Asia to South America, passing through Italy or Denmark, there is a lot to make you want to return and try "just another"... Also, if you're a fan of Caipirinha, Mojito or Strawberry Marguerita (be sure to order the jar on this one!) you're in for a treat... It's not the chepest of places, but the quality of the service, food and drinks certainly is worth it. If possible, reserve beforehand.

“A gem”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

We had difficulty finding the location. It is on a very narrow street, not identified by signs) that leads from a main square. Even our GPS was confused. We played, “you are getting warmer, you are getting colder” for 15 minutes before finally finding the correct exit from the square. Walking down the street, we almost missed the restaurant because it has no external signs that we could determine, but then it was the only place that seemed “open.” Our hostess/waitress was chatty, informative, and attentive. I would not describe the atmosphere as “romantic,” but it is intimate. The menu curiously separates Fish from Seafood. I had the red bean soup and fish with mango and ginger. My wife had a mixed green salad, and the chicken with mango curry. We also enjoyed a bottle of very good regional vinho verde recommended by the hostess. The ingredients for the salad were very fresh and tasty. We shared a baba de camelo for dessert. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal. If we are in Leira again, we will definitely dine here again.

Aphrodisiac cuisine. Nice Scandinavian steak and Indian curry. Very small modern place in the inner medieval city. Reservations recommended.
