The meal we shared in Fangas was the best we had in Coimbra. Traditional Portugese food with a modern twist, very good value for money and excellent produce. Watching the two chefs prepare multiple exquisite tapas in an orchestrated fashion was a delight, adding to the taste sensations we experienced. Don't miss this place for a meal when in Coimbra.

The waiter was very charming and the food very good. The place a bit noisy but full so what do you expect. Recommended.

This restaurant came highly recommended by our guide in Coimbra, so we gave it a shot. The ambiance and food were great, specially their award winning Cod dish. Lot of vegetarian options as well. The thing that dampens the experience is the slow service (we actually canceled an order as it didn't come until even after we were done). The... More

The stuffed red pepper was also good but filling. Avoid the chestnuts! We had a very nice time. The restaurant is popular so you might want a reservation if you go around 8 ish.

A great small tapas restaurant. Food here is very simple, but that's what we liked about it. They are not trying to do too much with the food, and that's good. The prices are appropriate, and the service was great. The place itself is cozy and romantic. Good job!

Lovely tapas bar in the middle of the old town. We had a selection including chickpeas, mushrooms and cheese. Wine was excellent as was the service. I would recommend if you are looking for a good casual meal with terrific ambiance.

We went there on a Sunday evening. Few restaurants were open, and we went there for its good reviews. We order a bottle of local wine and some tapas, including the hunted sausage, mushroom with sausage and almonds, gratine eggplant and some garlic bread. The sausage was not so good, as it tastes a bit sour. The mushroom was good,... More
