“Best chicken and chips in town!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

You've got to love this place. No pretensions whatsoever, just good food, good service in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. If you're not a fan of chicken, try their fish, pretty good last time I had some.

Great value, good food at a reasonable price what more could you want! Chicken comes highly recommended and it was fresh and as good as everyone said.

“25 years on & still good Chicken”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Still serves good chicken 25 years after I first went there & the service & style have not changed much. It is clean enough & the service is good enough. It is a nice casual place - very predictable.

“Great Chicken in Harare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

Nothing wrong with anything on the menu, but the chicken is what everyone goes to Coimbra for. Everything spotless and the staff friendly and efficient, lots of smiling faces around. Can get quite busy, so be prepared to wait a bit for a table.
