My friend took me out for dinner in this japanese restaurant. I liked the decoration and atmosphere very much. Tempura and maki rolls were fresh and tasty - maybe just a bit small for the price. But overall, it was a good experience and I'm happy to recommend this restaurant for sushi lovers.

If you're in to wait more than an hour for a ordinary sushi, this is the place. The place is an old beautiful house with a nice staff but that doesn't improve on the quality of the food.

I'll have to say that this was the least impressive sushi I had in a long time. The staff wasn't too friendly either so the whole experience was just OK. Suffice to say that if someone asks I won't recommend.

We've been to Japones twice now, once for our anniversary and once for my birthday and both times were excellent. Japones is a dark, romantic Japanese restaurant on the second floor of a building (no elevator) on Avenida Afonso Henriques. There is plenty of parking on the street, but you can also take a bus there if you don't have... More

Possibly the best restaurant in Coimbra but definitely the best Japanese restaurant in Coimbra. Fantastic fresh sushi and sashimi as long as you they hold the fruit

Great sushi and top Japanese cuisine that can be found in Portugal. It was a pleasant surprise find it out in Coimbra. For sushi fans and for those who want to prove. Very cozy restaurant with several rooms for more privacy. Professional and nice staff. I have to go back when in Coimbra.

We simply had a lovely experience in this restaurant! We found it on trip advisor and decided to try it one night. The place and the decoration is cozy and calm. We had one platter of chicken tyriaki and a sushi platter and a dessert afterwards. The chicken tyriaki did not exist on the menu but as I mentioned it... More

I've been there a couple of times and the last time I was there for my birthday celebration. I was reticent as I was going with the kids, but it turn out to be great! The different rooms (each of them with relatively small quantity of places) in the restaurant allowed us to have some privacy, and they have excellent... More

It is for sure the best Japanese restaurant in Coimbra. The sushi is pretty fresh and we can see it's carefully made. I have always had good experiences. Decoration is nice, the service is good. The right place to go for Japanese in Coimbra although I think that if you are a great admirer of japanese food, you will not... More

To be honest, it was my first time eating sushi.. However, I went to this restaurant because some friends of mine suggested it as the "best sushi ever". Extraordinary taste, excellent service. We took the 22 pieces mixed plate (both sushi and nigiri), vegetables tempura and three glasses of wine for 44€ total. I think it's a very good price.... More
