Fodor's Review

The date on the calçada paving out front reads "1922," which was when the Sousa family opened this attractive little restaurant next to the Ponte Velha, the old arched bridge. For summer dining there's a small, rustic terrace with views of the river and the Convent of Christ. Carrying on the family tradition, the kitchen turns out great quantities of hearty regional fare. Try the fritada de gambas (fried prawns, served with açorda bread soup), filetes de pescada (hake fillets in batter), cabrito assado (roast kid), plumas de porco preto (black pork cutlets), or arroz de polvo (octopus rice stew). For dessert, there's the local specialty, fatia de Tomar, made in-house with only egg yolks, sugar, and water.
