A favourite place from the student times and still keep on going there whenever in Coimbra and for the same reasons as in the past. The food is simply outstanding. No point in going if you do not ask immediately upon seating for the bones....More

Get in line and get a table. The food and service here is really good. We had bread, olives, wine, pork belly, goat, potatoes, spinach, dessert all for under 23 euro. Very different inside. Fun place to eat.

Very tiny cosy place where you fell as part of the family. The food is simple and delicious. Don't miss it when in Coimbra. I went for a late lunch by 15:00, so I was quickly seated and served, but I imagine there must be...More

What an experience?! It just isn't food, it's the whole show. You arrive in an alley, dim lit and with people lining up before open time. Head waiter rolls out, counts heads and goes back inside and sets the tables. He throws a few menus...More
