“Very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

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 well cooked.

“Very good food and value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

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 plenty of seafood choices, and a few meat dishes. I had fish soup as a starter, which was very good, and for the main course I had grouper, which was a little more expensive than the other fish dishes but nevertheless reasonably priced. It was well worth it, and the portion size was extremely generous. The service was very good, and the place seemed to be extremely popular with the locals too. Very good value for money - well worth a visit if staying in Leiria.

“Really nice restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2011

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.
