“Small place, great snacks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Very small snack bar, we had some great food, but don't go there expecting to find a restaurant, as classified in TA. Very nice sangria with sparkling red wine and berries. Interesting idea.

“Top!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Although one almost feels the need of shrinking inside the tiny little room,the fact is that together with the ultra nice staff and the amazing flavours & wine,it's absolutely impossible not to loveeeee! I definitely recommend Fangas :)

“The best place to eat tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

I went there just by chance for there was not much let in Coimbra during Queima das Fitas and I was totally surprised. We had a wonderful time sharing the food which was delicious and well prepared. The price was more than resanoble. If you want to spend some good time with your friends this is the place.

“" Uma casa Portuguesa , concerteza !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Fangas used to be an old grocer´s in a narrow street within Coimbra city wall . It is now a restaurant / bar, where you can have what I would call Portuguese "tapas " with a nice bottle of red wine . The food is tasty and the service excellent . The atmosphere is great and the background music( Portuguese fado and balads mainly ) allows conversation and relaxation . There is a small library , so if you want to escape into a quiet place in the afternoon you can have a bite to eat , read a book , bookmark it and come later !
As there is only one room with a few tables reservation is recommended !

“A delightful place in central Coimbra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

The Fangas 'mercearia & bar' in on one of the alleys leading from the rua principal on Coimbra's main hill and is one of our favourite places.

We are English but have lived here for 5 years. The food and service is the best, the owner a delighful lady, and the inside reveals an amazing custom wall decoration - I was so impressed I took a picture on our first visit. . The owner's brother custom-designed and made it, and it covers a whole wall !

The cafe is on Rua Fernandes Tomas, 2 minutes walk from the (must see) Amazens de Chiado museum.
