So far we didn't have any less... More

We were here as part of a group visit for a set lunch so had limited choice for lunch, but saying that it was a very good meal. An added bonus were the Fado singers. All round it was a very pleasant experience with good food and helpful servers.

As part of a Viking Tour stopped here as a group for lunch. The food was excellent. The service was very good. We were entertained by Ricardo Dias, Antonio Dinis and Pedro Lopes - Portuguese guitar, singer, and guitar. Dinis' has an excellent voice. It is the first time I heard of Portuguese guitar, beautiful instrument. Beautiful sound.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the city of Coimbra. It has a great atmosphere with University decorations, including photos of great singers and guitar players. The food is very good, with some unique delicacies. Good location allows for easy parking, unless the restaurant is really crowded, which can happen sometimes. It is clearly worth several visits.

Thank Paulo O
