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

Ate lunch & dinner here with another couple. Food was very good. The Sangria (both red & white) was great! 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

This place is great. It not only sits on the river bank in Parque M. Braga but is cantilevered out over the river. So the Mondego River flows beneath you. You can opt for the homemade pasta (instead of the dry boxed noodles) and it is well worth it for the extra charge. A very nice dining experience.

It has a great location beside the river. But the food was just about ok. The spaghetti agilo olio was a bit well done. Service was good - especially a gentleman who looked after us well. There were more service staff than guests which we wondered !

The food is great and the view is awesome but the service is really bad... Waiting times are too long, the drink orders got mixed up... the guys serving are very nice but really really few for the number of guests... it is a shame.
