A friend recommended this restaurant to us so we decided to try it. From start to end the service is very great. When you sit down at the table there are already some starters on your table (like always be aware that such starters are usually never free in Portugal so if you dont want to pay for them simply return them). First of all there were some slices of different kinds of ham. Quite expensive (i think around 12 Euros) but really really delicious! Also, there is a big board of cheeses and sausages next to your table. You can cut everything yourself and enjoy it as an appetizer. They weigh the board before and after and charge accordingly. The board was amazing and i loved the cheeses. Such a big variety. They also offer tapas and regular plates. We tried two tapas and a big a regular plate each. The food was very well prepared and with the main dishes you get 3 different sides (not written on the menu). We spent a total of 73 Euros for the ham, cheeses, bread tapas and two main dishes. Considering that this restaurant offers high-class cooking and well chosen and high quality ingredients i thought the price was more than ok. I Highly recommend the restaurant if you are looking for a special night out with great food and service.

This is, by far, one of my favourite restaurants, with extreme high quality in every detail.
The place is super cozy and the service is premium, with all the staff doing its best to make you feel at home.
They have excellent wine choices, as well as a wide range of cheese options.
The food is to die for...I ate there the best creamy codfish and duck rice of my life.
Can’t recommend enough!
Congratulations to the whole team!

Finally after a week in Portugal eating food designed for tourists, we found a fabulous restaurant in Leiria hidden behind a plain facade. Excellent service and food of high quality with wine to match. Very impressive and priced very favourably!!
