We chose Canelas de Coelho as a place for dinner on a Tuesday night since the other restaurant located at Foz was booked out.
Parking is available across the street, although much of a rip-off, so we managed to find free parking spots not far (300meters) from the restaurant.
We had salmon roses and scallops for starters. My scallops were cooked to perfection, it was just a pity that for 8eur, only 2 of them were served.
The tenderloin steak was cooked as instructed, i.e, medium rare. Very very juicy, tender, wonderfully seasoned. The syphon Port foam was a great complement, altough the steak didn't need any sauce/jus at all since all the flavors were there. The duck confit was tender, crispy skin, unfortunately the asparagus risotto was a bit on the overcooked side.
What did surprise us the most was the wine pairings (very very reasonable priced and available by the glass, which is not frequent in this price range restaurants). The co-owner owns a winery in the Douro valley and did a perfect job choosing the wines, also the service was great - pleasant, nice, but not poshy or pretensious. The wines were between 3 and 4 euros per glass, and there were at least 3 choices of white, red and green,
Certainly a def. come back.
