Definitely an unexpected and yet great experience ! Delicious food for a very affordable price (10€ for a large rabbit portion), immersive medieval theming (with natural candle light), and great (well medieval dressed) staff ! PS: strange to admit, but the toilets were quite interesting...More

Great beers but the family spent the night throwing up after eating the food. Might be bad luck but I would avoid eating here this place spoiled our time in Tomar.More

Everything was amazing from the entrees to the main course, finishing with the dessert. The staff was friendly professional. You should try the sangria

I read the review of some heatherns. This is a super resturant with jolly good food, range of draugh beers, and service. Right over in the corner of the square. The resturant is popular with locals and outsiders. Good menue. Quite well priced. Delicious food.

Location is very good and so is the food. It has some kind of an antique look that brings you few centuries back.

We have a rule for eating out - never eat in a place where the staff are in costume (because the food won't be any good) - however the Taverna Antiqua almost, but not quite, breaks that rule. The interior is very dark and decorated...More
