A hidden gem with a great cook, , Nice wine and friendly service. Half portion was surely enough. Was kind of surprised I didn't get another cutlery to eat my main dish after starter and we were presented a bill incl. bread we did not touch.

It was not open when I go there at 5:30pm. It was really frustrating to find it closed when hungry and tired. They have to correct their information on the major sites like google and tripadviser.

We had a wonderful dinner here-great fish, chicken, goat and grilled calamari. Service excellent and helpful. The restaurant was clean and pleasant. Highly recommended.

We had a great meal here. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful in assisting us with the wine and food choices. The slow-cooked lamb was delicious and it was no problem for them to add a side plate of greens which we'd only ordered as an afterthought. The Liqor Beirao was a great finisher.

We found this to be a friendly and reliable good quality Portuguese restaurant down the side streets of Coimbra, with a comfortable and clean environment. The goat stew in particular was fantastic, and the fish was good too. We enjoyed it so much we went back for dinner a second day.

We were looking for authentic Portugese food and found it here! A simple but nice place among many places to choose from. We could see that many locals were frequenting and we were not disappointed. Excellent meal and excellent service by Josh!

It's a small place and we were lucky to have a table . Even before we order, the waiter bring very tasty cheese and different types of bread . We were satisfied with the soups and the main courses (fish, meat). Reccomended

Fantastic restaurant, only found by asking locals where to eat local food. Great atmosphere and friendly service, providing really tasty local food and wine. A great place to eat in the most popular local restaurant area. (Get there early, very, very popular! )
