Very Good Choice

Good service, outstanding breakfast for a 3 star hotel. Great view over the city (do ask fora city view room). Indeed some 10 minute drive to the city center but great if you have a car. Good option for a family of 4 visiting Coimbra for a couple of days.

The meal and the overall experience we had at D. Luis was absolutely superb! From the view to the wine, bread, entrees and dessert, the quality was top notch. The waiter recommended a bottle of the house wine from a vineyard in Coimbra --a fabulous pinot-like variety..for just 9 euros. The bread was to die for...they gave us 2 baskets... More

The view is terrific. We came here because we stopped at the hotel earlier for directions, and the desk staff were so kind and helpful, it seemed right to give it a try. The meal portions are substantial. The waiter steered me away from my first choice to another, which didn't seem especially Portuguese, and was only ok. Who knows... More

The menu has always been interesting based on portuguese cuisine. A little bit of "off menu" ordering has already been accomadated too. The view would justify the choice. You simply... More

We spent the S. Martinho weekend at the Best Western D. Luís and we thought we could try the restaurant. We were warmly welcomed by the staff, who were really nice, starting by the head waiter. Dinner was great! The chestnut soup, the codfish with mushrooms and the pork with chestnuts. We had a chestnut overdose but it was so... More

I and my friends celebrated the S. Martinho season with a dinner at this restaurant. It was quite a night. The buffet and all the food were varied and very delicious. The ambience and the live music were great. The night view over Coimbra is spectacular. Next year we ll be there for S. Martinho again.
