Been coming here for he past 5 years. This time it was so disappointing.
Was waiting for over 45 minutes.
Sauce tasted like an instant knorr mix.
Expecting so much more.

I've eaten francesinha here 3 times. Very good! Place is always packed - with locals- (good sign), but it can be difficult sometimes to get a table.

One of the best places to eat francesinha!! It is worth waiting for some minutes to find a seat. Service was fine.

I went to that place because of a recommendation of a workmate, who said me that the francesinhas of Atenas were the best in Coimbra. I can´t confirm that because I haven´t try the other ones, but he was right. I enjoyed a lot my Francesinha, and also the bacallao a bras that ate my girlfriend was really nice. We had the opportunity to have dinner outdoors. The resturant is curious and nice (kinda old fashioned, but with charm), it is clean, the waitress was really efficient, and the prices are in good accordance with what they give. I really recommend this place to everyone who visits Coimbra and want to try a Francesinha in a tipical place.
