One of the best restaurants in Coimbra
Genuine Portuguese food in a nice environment. Not too expensive. Doses can be shared. Multilingual.
This restaurant has classy decor, impeccable service, and great food in several nice bright rooms. Main courses seem expensive until you realize it's enough for two people (maybe order half portion if not super hungry or taking the rest away). I had the house speciality of roasted goat with potatoes, a dry red wine from Douro Valley recommended by my server and the seafood bisque, as a starter. I finished with the house made cake (forget the name but it was great). All dishes were exceptional though the bisque maybe not such a standout (still good though). The portion of the main course was gigantic! Waiter was cheerful and helpful with suggestions and made up the remainder of my main course for me to take away. Most of the seafood dishes looked quite expensive (did not have one myself), but I would guess the portions are quite large and probably enough for two. They seem to specialize in goat and lamb as well as seafood. I highly recommend this place if you are in Coimbra and want to dine someplace on the higher end with a friendly, casual atmosphere and good, traditional Portuguese food. It would be particularly good for groups or couples who want to share.
