We had to drive around a bit - the famous roundabouts - and found it, unassuming outside on an ordinary street but what a lovely interior - wood and lovely lighting and views right onto the grill and kitchen and very happy chef in his apron and white shirt - and he had a lot to be happy about.

We took a tip from Trip Advisor and stopped in for lunch and are we happy we did! The Cabrito was the best my wife had ever eaten; crispy on the outside and tender in the middle. I had a fish dish that was as fresh as could be. The service was impecable. During the meal you are treated to... More

This restaurant is a treasure I'm Coimbra. No one should come to Portugal without visiting this place. Think about best service, best local food, lots of love for what they do.... This is it. We went there two times. The first one we ordered the mushrooms for appetizers which were melting on our mouths, the bread is so so delicious,... More

Simple home cooking, typical Portuguese but fantastic quality and for a great price. This restaurant represents exactly what I love about Portuguese cuisine and gastronomy culture. Homeliness, simplicity but great quality.

I'm a local and I have dined here a couple of times, and it was very good every time! The staff is also very friendly and the mood is cozy and home-like because of the warm colours and big old stove. I suggest the roasted lamb - delicious for a big tasty dinner

You know a place is good when it's off the beaten track but filled with locals eating delicious food. We were recommended this place by a student and the local university and we enjoyed every home cooked morsel of food. The entire menu is in Portuguese. It's not big, only a few options with some meals of the day. Lucky... More

Despite the unassuming appearance from the street - the inside is where the magic happens! The menu is only in Portuguese but they can translate. This place is like sitting grandmas kitchen. There are about 8 main dishes to choose from and the sides are the same for each dish (potatoes, peppers, rice, spinach, and onions). This is not the... More

The place is small but totally full (the best would be to make a reservation previously). The mâitre d' will tell you what is best recommending or not recommending what is best on that precise day. He also made a wonderful suggestion of wine - and the food was delicious. I strongly suggest to anyone who goes to Coimbra to... More
