Living in the city for many years I know this restaurant quite well and I totally recommend it. Prices are very accessible and acceptable. All is very clean and is good for a romantic dinner near the river. Just so many years going there and once employers are the same they could be a bit more nice and easy to... More

I didn't know what taste like real, fresh mozzarella before going there (I mean really, it was mind blowing). Good food, great sangria, location amazing (next to the river), good service BUT looking at my credit card bill later, they charged us the dinner twice... no wonder the waiter "offered us" a digestive shot after the meal :p

I'm a native but I just went to this restaurant a couple of times. Main attraction is the location, just around city center, inserted in the park with great views over the river. Food is good, I ordered a pasta and pizza an both were great but I tend to think is overpriced. Yes, I know, you pay for the... More

Service was very good.....servers will make suggestions and are prepared to change up the menu to accommodate your needs. Our companion asked whether they had the "typical rice pudding" for dessert....they actually had none.... however unknown to us they sent... More

Once you're in Coimbra you have to go to this restaurant, You'll find a very intimate atmosphere, a romantic one as I see it, and you have the river as the scenic. Typical Italian food, and the best you'll fin in a 100km radius.

This is a very popular restaurant in Coimbra - and for good reason! The food is really lovely (even for vegetarian me!) and the position looking onto the river is super too. Our waiter was full of fun and spirit, which is quite unusual for here! 8 of us all had a lovely meal with great house red. This isn't... More
