This restaurant is located on the corner of the main place within the center.

Typical decoration, starters are bring to the table, sometimes you can have local specialties depending on seas arrivals.

I recommend portuguese pizzas, bacalhau or the chuleton for two if you want to try different dishes.

Good service.

We're in Leiria every year & always manage to stop in here at least 2 or 3 times. It has great atmosphere, friendly efficient staff, quality and value. Generally packed but these guys really know what they're doing. Highly recommend the pizzas (wood oven!), chocolate mousse (fantastic!), ice-cold beer and maybe a little shot of grappa to end the meal (don't sniff it or your nose hairs will burn off!). Will be back again and again!

We visited at lunchtime and had a fantastic value fixed price menu for 7.50 Euros.

The pizzas looked excellent, although we had prawns and veal escalopes.

Recommended for great value food. Staff helpful, atmosphere ok.
