skipped the hotel dining room, cruised into town - and not disappointed! prompt service (seemed to be all women waitresses), excellent olives seasoned in oli and thyme! house wine by the glass, mains of octopus and beef followed by desert of lemon ice cream and light as air creme brule...for only 35Eu. Perfect ending to an enjoyable day touring Tomar!

This restaurant is very pleasantly set, although when full, it is quite noisy. The food was very good. The service was good. Pleasant stuff working there. The price was very reasonable especially for such good food.

The food is soooo....good here and Paula and her staff are wonderful. Praise for the chocolate and chilli tart especially. At Christmas my son rang Paula from the UK and arranged for us to have a meal there on him and we went just after New Year. We have now been quite a few times and we love it. Paula speaks excellent English if your Portugese is a bit limited (as is ours) and takes time to explain the menu fully. One really great point in her favour is that she does not try to push expensive wines on you (indeed, there are no really expensive wines) and will recommend a good house wine. She was right about the red wine going perfectly with the chocolate and chilli tart - perfection! Thanks Paula, you deserve to be the best!

One of the best in Tomar!
Just followed earlier suggestions at tripadvisor and went for lunch there today.
Paid 17 EUR total, for two persons, with grilled meat (delicious and tasty with french fries and rice), two drinks, salad, one desert and two coffees).
Atmosphere is nice and staff is helpful.
Located in the old center, with narrow streets.
Better go there walking, no place to park nearby.

Very good option, cheap and delicious to taste authentic portuguese food!

We had our Christmas lunch here and we also come in for lunch on occassion. Paula and her staff work hard to please and the food is good and reasonably priced. The desserts are amazing - especially the chocolate cake com piri-pri - (hot and spicy)
