“Excelente opção em Coimbra”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We've tried bacalhau a broa and robalo fish. Both were very nice as well as the wine, that came from Bairrada region. The service was very nice - one of the best I've seen in Portugal.

“Restaurante in the city pool and in the left riverside of Mondego”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

The restaurante is located a litle far out from the. Although you can go by the pedestrian bridge of Mondego river. From the city center (Portagem) through the pedestrian bridge, I say you will take about 20 min by foot.

You can eat for about 20€ including appetizers, drinks and desserts. Be careful because the food dosage is low, except from the "cataplanas". The food is well cooked, but nothing special. The plates are good looking.

Regarrding the ambient of the restaurant, it as a nice contrast. From one side you can see the "countryside" and by the other you see the pool and city center. The decoration is fine with a modern style.

“relaxing nice meal with stupendous view over Coimbra”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Over a pool, you can sit outside with a view over the city or you can eat inside tanking advantage or the air conditioning. The food is surprisingly good, mixing unexpected flavors with typical portuguese food. The first time is a surprise, the second time a confirmation and you can repeat coming back for the pleasure. A great value for the food you get makes one of the best family/romantic restaurants in Coimbra. The family has become 'regular' clients, since it is one of the best outdoor spots for dinner in Coimbra.

“Average restaurant”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I went there with friends, celebrating my friend's birthday.
I don't know if they want to make money out of large groups, but I didn't find the food to be nothing out of the ordinary.
The main course, a seafood something, was very poor in seafood it self, for starters.
The room it's ok as it was the service.

I will give it another change one of this days and update my review if I change my opinion.

I really can't say why this is ranking as Coimbra's #1, but I recognize that my city has a poor offer of first class restaurants.

“Always appreciate coming here!”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

I came here several times, always in large group dinners. I was never disappointed with the food and environment. Looks goods & is always delicious. Especially recommend the bacalhau (codfish) or the espetada de lulas! Certainly an added-value to Coimbra's restaurant offer. Enjoy!
