It's a popular place, people have to wait for a table at week-ends but you'll see that it's worth every penny. We had "espetada" with shrimps and beef, nice and crispy french fries and grilled...

Great place for tradicional portuguese food and grilled meat. The house special is the "espetada mar e terra" a surf & turf skewered beef with squid and prawns. Near the old Mercado Municipal and few steps from a parking lot.

The place as simple decor, but the staff were friendly and efficient. The food was good. The prawns wrapped in bacon were a delicious novelty. The prices were very reasonable and good value overall.

This restaurant is located in the center of Leiria, nearby the river Lis and the garden "Luis de Camões". It's a busy place with a simple home cooked food. Great quality, quick service and value for money.
