We had this restaurant recommended to us by the apartment staff. We went and arrived about 1930, making us the first in the restaurant but were quickly joined by other diners. The service was excellent and the food quality was outstanding. We had a local pork meal which was wonderful. The price was more than fair and the atmosphere quaint.... More

I had Bacalhau à Lagareiro and it was an generous and very well cooked piece of this fish. Good wines are available too.

The ambience is great and it's not too busy during my visit. And that's not a bad sign because people are actually coming and going all the time. The service is great too. However, I ordered the goat stew (Chanfana) which I saw most people buzzing about how great it is. But mine turns out to be very salty. I... More

Lovely small restaurant in the alleys of Coimbra. João provides the nicest and friendliest service possible. Food is cooked to perfection. A place with a lot of character and soul.

I had this place on my list and while the spot across the street looked tempting, we went with the cozier more traditional feel of ACdM. (Esp. since we were eating at a fairly modern place in Sintra the next nite.) In any case, the German man next to us tipped us off to the pork cheeks which A. got... More

We came across this little restaurant whilst looking for somewhere to eat and decided to give it a try - we were not disappointed, we had an excellent meal. We requested a menu in English, but were told they didn't have one, but the waitress would explain the menu to us. She duely came over and talked us through the... More

Definitely order the pork cheeks as others have recommended. The wait staff was efficient and helpful in making suggestions after some inquiries. We enjoyed a lovely meal with a wonderful bottle of wine for under 45€. Please note that they do not accept credit cards. When we passed by the next night they were full up so we were happy... More
