“One of our favorites!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

If you are in Tomar and want a great experience and a good meal this is the place. Look for the real Portuguese specials like roast duck((Thursday) or pork cheeks (burras?) - usually on Sunday. They also make one of the best duck rice on the planet!

“Neat Restaurant”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Had a nice meal here in early december. Loved the interior with huge wine vats lined up on one side and hundreds of wine bottles on the opposite side. House wine was tasty and inexpensive. Our entrees were ok but nothing to write home about. Nice desert menu and very affordable.

“delicious simple food in a groovy space”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

We read the Tripadvisor review by the last person (someone from Leuven) and decided to go here.
It was FABULOUS. really nice, simple rustic style food in a cool setting - it used to be the cellars of the restaurant opposite. The guy who runs it was very nice, helpful, speaks a million languages and it was SUCH good value! 28 euros including a fab bottle of wine! THey do half portions which is totally realistic. you do not need the full ones. Try the deserts - yummy!
we are going again tomorrow

“Very tasty food in a very cosy setting”
Reviewed July 16, 2011

This restaurant actually is part of another restaurant across the street that has a more traditional Portuguese interior (also called "casas de something" - forgot the exact name). The interior of Casas das ratas really stands out with all the tables on one long row, and low benches to sit on, and intimate lighting. There is a very happy, cozy atmosphere in this restaurant. The person that served us (the owner?) seemed a native English speaker. He explained all dishes very nicely, helped us choose the wine, and all together came over very professional. The food was really delicious. They serve traditional portuguese food. We had grilled sardinas and a stew with big white beans, pork leg, chourico and black pudding. We were so happy with the food and the atmosphere that we even had dessert, the dessert of the house(chocolate, biscuit and cream) and drunken pears, both of which were again impeccable and delicious. All this, together with olives and a bottle of vinho verde costed us 24 euros. Amazing!
