Good food, good wine, low price. What else can you ask for? We had grilled fish and you could taste that it was really fresh. Every time I go to Leiria I have to eat here!

Small place full of locals, friendly staff, very affordable prices, no-frills both in terms of the food and the decor. I had the swordfish, and the lemon pie for dessert. Tasty stuff all around!

Fine and great to be with friends. It's good and cheap. The atmosphere is warm, the typical Portuguese tavern where the food is so good as drink. I recommend the "alheira" and the winehouse rosé!
