Casa das Ratas and Casa Matreno are two restaurants opposite each other on the same street in Tomar. As they belong to the same owner share the same menu and waiting service you should see them as one but they are completely different in atmosphere and decoration.
The restaurants are well known and very popular in both Tomar and internationally.
The food is excellent, portions large and prices reasonable. They offer a selection of local dishes, international dishes and a fully delicious and nutritious vegetarian meal.
Some people visit Tomar just to be able to eat in this restaurant.
Casa das Ratas has an old tavern feel, dark brown interior and wine poured straight from the large wine containers that decorate it’s walls. There is always fado music playing in the background and the run down facade gives the Casa das Ratas (house of the rats) an authentic feel, that fits both the restaurant and the street.
Casa Matreno is the opposite – bright, clear decoration. Lots of colour and a crisp, clean ambiance.
In both places the walls are decorated with funny, retro or artistic memorabilia.
Very nice restaurants that should be included in every trip to Tomar at least once!
