This place is a popular restaurant in the heart of Coimbra. I came here with a group of friends, all students. The staff was incredible in accommodating our large group, and the food was delicious! The area is on the smaller side, but other than that it's a great restaurant.

We had a fantastic local experience in this restaurant. We took the daymenu, very tastefull. The family was eating as well and we had a great conversation in a multilanguage we all understood. Had a great evening! Would certainly come again.

This restaurant is recommended in Le Routard and Trotamundos touristic guides among others and during the high season, at least, the terrace of this restaurant is always full and you will see the book on the table. It is not casuality. We had one of the best dinners in Portugal in this romantic corner of the square, enjoying fresh breeze... More

Only visited for students groups dinners or friends' birthdays. The waiters are nice, even more how they put up with drunk students. The food is ok, it is nothing special and it doesn't try to be. It is what it is, and I can recommend it for the price and for groups dinners since the food just keeps on coming... More

The best about this place is the price. The food is good, but nothing special, there are a lot of better restaurants in Coimbra. But if you want to eat real food (i mean, not fast or junk food) for a good price , this is the right place!!!

We had a very nice family dinner on this quiet praca a bit out of the busy sites in Coimbra. Great choice of typical portuguese dishes, served generously. Try the "piranha", lices of raw beef that you cook yourself on a hot plate that is brought to your table. Spectacular! The wine list is generous as well, and the prices... More

If you want a typical experience of the group eats and get loud go there for dinner. I feel it's purpose is solely for groups, average food and wine and I seem to remember a better and more willful staff.

Food was okay, nothing special and overall a bit too simple. Price seems to be fair. Service could be more Attentate!

I didn't find the food to be amazing, but it was nice. The service could improve a lot, after the meal they ignored us and that does not please anyone.
