Without a shadow of a doubt, the best francesinha I've eaten in Coimbra. Also good location to visit the city center afterwards!

It is the best Francesinha that I have eaten. I have eaten a couple of times in Atenas and the Francesinha always was very good. The sauce is really good. 5 stars.

We went to Café Atenas recommended by locals since we wanted to eat a francesinha. The food was very good. The staff were frindly. On the downside was the waiting time - about half an hour. It’s too much for a bunch of hungry people....More

Been coming here for he past 5 years. This time it was so disappointing. Was waiting for over 45 minutes. Sauce tasted like an instant knorr mix. Expecting so much more.

I've eaten francesinha here 3 times. Very good! Place is always packed - with locals- (good sign), but it can be difficult sometimes to get a table.
