This restaurant is located in one of the nice hotels in the Center of Portugal, in Coimbra. We really enjoyed the service and the location, the food was inline to what we would expect, but I can not consider all great dishes. We selected the menu Pedro and Ines: €65 for a 5 course meal (1 entree, 1 soup, 2 main courses and a dessert). In my opinion the best ones were the fish (turbot perfectly cooked) and the dessert (crunchy milk custard). They recommended us at the beginning a sparkling wine "Quinta do Valdoeiro" which was excellent and they had the courtesy not to charge for it. For the meal we selected a Douro wine and although the list is not extensive, you will find a good selection for each of the main wine regions of Portugal.
Despite being a restaurant expensive by the standards of the country, location, cuisine, environment, worth a visit. I recommend.

We stayed at the hotel in which this pretty restaurant is located and were looking forward to eating at this restaurant , but even though the food was good, the presentations lovely and the staff attentive, the cost was so "over-the-top" that we had some difficulty enjoying the meal. Overall I would say skip it unless you have money to burn. There are many restaurants around Coimbra where the food is just as good and far less expensive.

Food is good, wine list could be better and the service was less than regular.

The service is slow , the menu is ok even if not that creative. The prices are not cheap but the wine list is extensive and interesting. However the atmosphere is great.

We have visited many Michelin restaurants and I booked our stay in the hotel as a special treat to end our holiday driving around Portugal.
There is no menu in reception, the menu is displayed awkwardly by side door facing the gardens - but that wasn't an issue as it looked like it never changed! there was a lack of real choice.
There seemed to be no reference to being Portuguese (apart from sourcing the food) nothing displaying any imagination or being memorable. There was constant up-selling, trying to get us to try things we didn't want - not very relaxing, they even got a dish completely wrong (we didn't complain being too english).
The cooking was competent and would have been nice if it hadn't been so expensive and failed to reach our expectations.
