Well. Do yourself a favor and choose another place to eat. Slow service, some tapas were good but most of them were only average.

It started to rain, it was getting late for lunch and this was the first place that we found. What a nice surprise! It is located in the old part of Coimbra with narrow, picturesque streets. Very good Portuguese food and a good recommendation for wine. The waiter was very kind and helpful. We had a very enjoyable and leisurely... More

Great wine selection, nice staff. We tasted the tapas with cod-fish and it was amazing. Everything was actually tasty. The only problem was that when we visited Coimbra there was a heatwave and the airconditioning in this place wasn't working properly due to powercuts so it was pretty hot and we couldn't enjoy the food so much.

The food was incredible with the service to match. The head waiter, unsure of his name made us feel more than welcome and ensuring the food throughout was as he previously stated it would be. Incredible.

Very good meal. English-speaking- friendly. Friendly host who made some recommendations on dishes. Very good wine selection. They do have a big groups' table which can slow down service but we didn't have too much of a problem with this.

Female-owned restaurant has a varied list of small-plate dishes. My friend raved about the grilled octopus. Other seafood choices, and good vegetarian dishes as well.

We dined here on our last night in Coimbra. We wanted to find somewhere that had options for vegetarians - Fangas had a tapas-style menu with veggie dishes and very knowledgeable staff to advise us. The restaurant has two sites a few yards apart - we ate in the quirky and very atmospheric original site. The food and wine was... More
