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
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
We like our large meal around 2 to 3 pm. Stopped at Giro just before 2pm. Not real busy so immediately seated, presented with menus. Then ordered: grilled white fish with boiled small potatoes, pork and shrimp brochettes with fries, small salad, and fish soup....The presentation of the food on blue porcelain plates was beautiful. White tablecloths and 2 glasses of red wine complemented the scene. A small intimate dining space with great food. Located on a very narrow street in a very old entirely remodeled (inside) building in Old Town!More
Friendly local feel to this place. And there were more locals than tourists in for dinner the night we went.
Quite extensive Portuguese cuisine menu. The goat casserole was delicious, but for those who prefer fish there was plenty to choose from. Friendly wait staff....Worth a visit.More
Fabulous food and service, our best meal so far in Portugal. Chicken was superb and my dining companions all enjoyed their veal & bacon, beef & shrimp and beef & chorizo. Wine was very good and we thought it was very well priced. Highly recommend...this restaurant.More
The restaurant is situated down an alley and slightly off the beaten track. It is very work seeking out as the food and the service are excellent. There was a good choice of regional dishes and most of the other diners were Portuguese which always...tells you it will be good. Good value too.More
Popped in here during Portugal's final showing in the World Cup (sadly), and we were pleasantly surprised to find plenty of seating AND the soccer match playing on a little TV in the corner. [As the evening wore on, this restaurant started to become quite...a bit more popular]
We decided to eat some of the appetizer plates they brought (in Portugal, you are charged an extra fee if you choose to eat these, but the bread and cheese looked very good -- and we weren't disappointed!)
We ordered the chanfana (goat stew) and the calamari and prawn skewers. Both were very good, and HUGE portions. We also got a bottle of the house red wine, and it was quite good for the price (looking around, EVERY table was drinking either the white or red house wines... just too good of a value!)
Like a lot of Portuguese food, it was a little salty, but overall one of our best meals in the country so far.More
