“Friendly Staff in a Cozy Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We were recommended the G&J restaurant across the street, but after realizing it was out of our price range we found this perfect little place across the street. The menu is only in Portuguese, but our waiter was willing to translate to English for us. The dishes on offer fit on one page, but we had no problems finding something we were interested in. Our food was delicious (I had the grilled bass), and the atmosphere of the restaurant was exactly what we were looking for. We were sad to only have one night in Coimbra for we definitely would have gone back if we'd had more time. I highly recommend this place!

“A great find in the old city of Coimbra”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

After a week in Portugal we were delighted to find this little gem. Heitor Gomes the chef could not have been more accommodating and for under 40 Euros for the two us we enjoyed a 2 course meal including a couple of glasses of wine. Service was excellent and both chef and waiter spoke excellent English.

“Coimbra gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

After 8 days in Portugal and many good meals, we happened upon this delightful small restaurant in downtown Coimbra. Our meal was by far the best we have had so far. Clearly authentic, menu in Portuguese only (but easy to identify the options), we had 3 courses plus wine for 2 people for less than 40 euros. Service was friendly and professional. Can't recommend more highly - we almost felt like standing at the door and urging potential customers to come in and try it.

“Great little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Right next to the large (and twice as expensive) G&J there's a small restaurant with great food and pleasant service. Also, portions of a non-discouraging size made it a nice an cozy place to eat.
