Our two main courses, goat and rockfish, were generous portions and spectacular. The service was friendly and attentive. This comfortable yet unassuming restaurant is a gem.

Giro was good for a family dinner. It has a slightly old-fashioned retro air - not a bad thing. We were three hungry people: for dinner we had bacalhao a bras, octopus and potatoes, turnip greens, a salad, steak and sausage on a skewer. Food...was all tasty and well-prepared, and certainly enough. We also shared a "caramel" dessert - OK. Other customers were mainly local, but the very friendly young waiter spoke good English. A bottle of good-quality local (Bairrada) red wine went well with the meals. I have rated this at five stars, not because of outstanding gourmet food, but because of the overall friendly and pleasant experience. The cost was 90 euros, including tip.More

Typical familiar style restaurant. We tried picanha, which is served with prawns in a tile, and grilled fish. The price was fairly low for the quality of the food served and the quantity. Appreciated that it was one of the few restaurants with open cuisine...still at 21.30!More

This is a very good choice for lunch in Coimbra. I had the bacalhau à Brás and my partner had the grilled lulas. Both dishes were tasty and ample. We also had a bottle of wonderful local wine for an exceptionally reasonable price. The service...was good and typical Portuguese. The restaurant is bright an the tables have proper table cloths.

The food was not bad but the service was terrible. We ordered the food and 20 minutes later the waitress came to tell us it's not available. We chose another ones and the situation repeated itself. Lastly, the waitress came to our table with one...wrong dish we couldn't even eat because of allergies. We fell for a classic turist trap, that is the starters of bread and butter is not free. The food was average and definitely not worth two hours we had to spend there because of all the mishaps.More

Perfect! Excellent food, friendly service. Both the octopus and the dorade were great. The recommended wine was tasty as well. Best place for dinner we have found in Coimbra.

I had a fish soup and the stuffed roast veal. Both were superb. Service was excellent too. I reckon I was the only tourist there at lunchtime - others were all locals on their lunch break.

I had the “steak on a roof tile” which came with grilled shrimp, salad, rice and fries and it was delicious. Not a big salad lover but this one was so fresh and tasty it is worth a mention. Overall it was an amazing meal....Wifey had the grilled chicken with migas and she loved it. We split a bottle of house red wine and it complimented the meals nicely. We always try the tiramisu when offered when we travel and the one here was still frozen in it’s container when served so we don’t recommend that particular dish, but do highly recommend this place. Knowing a little Portuguese here will go a long way. The waiter spoke just enough English and when combined with our limited Portuguese and Spanish we did fine. Not your basic tourist trap, that’s for sure😊More

The Restaurant is located in a nice quiet alley in the historic part of Coimbra and very cozy to eat in. The dishes we order, Salmon with potatoes and lettuce, and a grilled sea bass with rice and spinach (the house specialty) were very tasty,...together with white wine, and the service was excellent.More

Great location on a central back street, all the food is very good. Could even make relatively boring fare, like chicken breasts, taste very good. The grilled sardines were especially good. A nice place to linger if you wish, but they also can turn you...around quickly if time is an issue. Staff helpful and capable.More

The Açorda with Petinga (small fried sardines) was just right. Even though it was a la carte order, very quick service!

We heard about this restaurant from a local who said that we could get some great seafood there. She was right. We ordered the house specialty which was grilled sea bass served with spinach and small potatoes. The wine was a house wine and went...very well with the fish. The service was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.More

The best meal I’ve had in 4 years of visiting Portugal annually! A nice break from bacalao; grilled meats, fish, chicken. A nice fresh salad w perfect Portuguese olive oil. Had a lovely grilled, pork, steak and shrimp. My friend had the specialty of goat...braised in wine and stew. I was skeptical; but ended up reaching over to his plate over and over. Served family style for sharing so be warned; big portions and good prices. The owner knows his wine list well! Very clean and quaint too.More
