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....More

On my second visit to Coimbra I had to revisit this great family run restaurant. It's out of the tourist plaza region but in the centre of the old town. Tucked in a laneway it's very easy to locate. It's always busy with locals which...More

Following Lonely Planet guide we went looking for it. The meat is very good and in big portions, service is fast (unlike most of Portugal) and the prices are more than decent. Desserts are Carte D'Or and not homemade which is a bit disappointing. The...More
