We ate here both nights we stayed in Coimbra; we had to go back! A local couple said they go once a week, and we learned why. The fish soup ranks among the finer soups I've ever tasted, The shrimp/calamari skewers, sea bass, stewed goat and migas made us very very happy. It is quite reasonable, very quaint, and the service was prompt and pleasant. A great place to celebrate a 56th birthday in a lovely old city.

Planned our visit here based on TripAdvisor reviews and weren't disappointed. The grilled 'dorado' fish was wonderful - crispy yet succulent - and the piri piri chicken was textbook. Lovely potatoes to boot.

Excellent restaurant with quality food. The dishes were really well served, big portions of tasty food! The presentation is also a positive point, not in a fancy way, but in a traditional Portuguese way.
The restaurant is not very big but it is very cosy. We went on a Saturday and it was crowded but the servers managed it perfectly. They are really attentive and effective.
I have been in this restaurant two times and I will for sure return!

I luckily strolled into this place for lunch and what a find! The grilled Dorado was one of the best I've ever had - anywhere. It was grilled to perfection, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. And the fish soup was wonderful. And the price was right. If you're in Coimbra and don't pop in here, you're missing out.

It is nearly mission impossible to find a place to eat in Portugal between 15h and 18h30. This place is open all afternoon, has a cozy interior, really great Portuguese food, great value for money, and an attentive staff.
