Marisqueira de Tomar is a great fish and seafood restaurant in Tomar, locally famous, successful and excellent fish restaurant, meat grill and beer house.
The Marisqueira de Tomar was an unexpected and exceptional find for Go Discover Portugal. The restaurant is out of the historic centre and undiscovered by tourists but amongst the best appreciated Tomar restaurants by locals.
The restaurant is magnificent in décor, ambiance and dishes, typically Portuguese but luxurious, nice waiter service and good wines. Next door to the restaurant is the beer house that also serves coffees, snacks and budget meals.
It is a very exceptional fish restaurant but it also serves meat dishes, tapaz and has a part that functions as a beer house or as it is called in Portuguese a cervejaria.
The Marisqueira de Tomar is situated in the newer, modern part of Tomar where you’ll find clothes shops, banks, café’s, pastelaria’s (cakes and lunch rooms). It’s the more modern part of Tomar that is completely in contrast with the historical centre which most Tomar visitor go for.
The Marisqueira has been a family owned restaurant for the last 40 years.
It’s very nicely decorated with hand painted windows of various important Tomar scenes and natural stone element. It’s a large restaurant with different rooms, each with own ambiance, décor and atmosphere.
The fish dishes on offer are excellent! Price quality balance is very good, they offer a fish plate consisting of Lobster (whole), a large crab, shrimp and shells for 55 Euro full portion (2 people) and half portion for 35 Euro. but they have on menu many other dishes starting at roughly 10 euro
In the beer-house or on the terrace, they offer a daily changing full menu including drinks and dessert for 7.50 euro – I would say indulge and eat in the restaurant, you’ll find yourself coming back!
It’s luxurious local dining in a bustling much appreciated restaurant away from the tourist crowds in Tomar. It roughly 10 minutes walk form the old central bridge.
Parking is free.
