This is a pretty little cafe and is clearly very popular. However it is woefully understaffed and we had to wait a very long time for lunch. We asked for some mineral water when we sat down but it took about half an hour to arrive, and the food took longer.

Also I have to say I was a bit underwhelmed by the food when it did arrive

Very small snack bar, we had some great food, but don't go there expecting to find a restaurant, as classified in TA. Very nice sangria with sparkling red wine and berries. Interesting idea.

Although one almost feels the need of shrinking inside the tiny little room,the fact is that together with the ultra nice staff and the amazing flavours & wine,it's absolutely impossible not to loveeeee! I definitely recommend Fangas :)

I went there just by chance for there was not much let in Coimbra during Queima das Fitas and I was totally surprised. We had a wonderful time sharing the food which was delicious and well prepared. The price was more than resanoble. If you want to spend some good time with your friends this is the place.

Fangas used to be an old grocer´s in a narrow street within Coimbra city wall . It is now a restaurant / bar, where you can have what I would call Portuguese "tapas " with a nice bottle of red wine . The food is tasty and the service excellent . The atmosphere is great and the background music( Portuguese fado and balads mainly ) allows conversation and relaxation . There is a small library , so if you want to escape into a quiet place in the afternoon you can have a bite to eat , read a book , bookmark it and come later !
As there is only one room with a few tables reservation is recommended !
