The Cafe Restaurant Petiscos Sao Pedro in Sao Pedro de Tomar is a bar, a restaurant and a tapas petiscos bar worth visiting in the cute village of Sao Pedro de Tomar just 7 km from Tomar and roughly 5 from the Castelo do Bode lake.
It’s set in one of the nicest landscapes of Portugal on the hilly, green, fertile landscapes of Tomar, that made this area of Portugal so prosperous.
The first dish we ate at the Cafe Restaurant Petiscos Sao Pedro was from the diario (daily changing full meal) a meal of grilled Dorado fish, a typical Portuguese steak and filettes (in batter fried fish). This was all fresh, nicely seasoned with a good salad and incredibly cheap.
The next day we came we tasted a tapas or in Portuguese Petisco, from their long list of Petiscos, called Amejoa (fried shells with coriander and freshly baked bread) and it was very good. Well cooked and nicely spiced. The portions are also royal.
It seems to be a favourite place for eating Petiscos for many others also as they where served in multitude on what is elsewhere, generally a quiet Tuesday night
The building is by itself not particularly interesting but it very cute and very Portuguese in ambiance and It has a nice terrace with a great view over the surrounding Tomarense landscape and de nicest parts of the village of Sao Pedro de Tomar. The building is well renovated, a mix of typical, traditional and modern, nicely decorated and comfortable.
It’s run by a a very friendly, innovative couple that manage to offer a great selection of meals, petiscos, wine, including a very good house wine, beers and other drinks. As well as coffees, pastries and snacks.
They have the average low Portuguese prices for the daily meals and standard prices for their Tapas or Petiscos.
At lunch they serve diarios (daily dishes) at night they have a menu.
It’s a place you could go to eat or drink at any time of day. It’s very popular, busy and bustling, but not overrun.
The owners also run a taxi company, so getting there or back home doesn’t need to be difficult.
