Some people like fancy and gourmet, others like 'normal' with a home and plentiful feel. If the second is your case, 'O Telheiro' will deliver. To get it over with, I'll start with the bad and say that the space isn't extraordinary. The decoration is plain, and the day we visited was unusually (?) packed. But that didn't have any... More

I lived in Coimbra for 4 years, and that is 4 years I have missed out on going to o Telheiro! Probably one of the best places me or my partner have ever been to. It is popular, so you have to wait, but believe me it is worth it... you always know there's good food where the locals are... More

Run by Miguel and Miguel, these two M and M's pop up all over the place looking after your every need, without being in your face. Nothing fancy with the furniture, cutlery and plates. Maybe this is one the reasons, it is rammed... More
