The day we went into the old city of Viseu to go sightseeing was very windy. Nonetheless, we chose to sit outside at Colmeia, right beneath the old cathedral. Very atmospheric, in every sense of the word. What a job the waiters had to keep everything around us from blowing away! But how cheerful and friendly they were; they made our lunch a memorable experience. I ordered the feijoada, which was tasty. It was also inexpensive and filling. My father-in-law had the leitao, also good. Consumed with a local red wine from the Dao, the food and the attentive service made for a very enjoyable meal.

Return visit. Always opt for all inclusive "Prato de Dia" at set price during week days which includes everything including coffee & wine. This time the main dish chosen was Leitao. Well prepared and succulent with potatoes from the oven and a side salad. Caldo verde as a starter and fresh mango for desert. What more do you want? Very friendly staff too.

Have visited this place many times.One of our favorites in Viseu. Always friendly staff. Great location. Super in the summer with outside tables along the church wall and under large trees.
Typical local cousine at reasonable prices. Sometimes they arrange very nice fado evenings with local artists. Reccomended indeed.

Many locals eat here. Good quality meals at a good price when you order the "All inclusive Prato de Dia" at lunchtime during the week. Outside dining in front of the cathedral wall. An unbeatable location. Friendly and efficient staff. Very good house wine.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, but failed to satisfy. The food was traditional Portuguese, and on a Sunday evening in August the restaurant was full with about fifty percent locals and fifty percent tourists. Unfortunately, we found the cabrito grelhado dry and a bit chewy, the bacalao was supposed to be fresh but was not, and the service was very slow. It was not bad, just not memorable. Next time we will dine next door.
