Found this restaurante on our own. Nice location in a square for Saturday lunch. Great service and fantastic food. Chanfana was enormous and probably enough for 2. Boiled potatoes and cabbage accompanied; Veal slices with frites very good. Local wine was just fine. Outstanding value for just over €22. We were the only table, unbelievably...and I don't understand their low TA rating. Highly recommend this place.

At the end of the main shopping street there is a square (Praca 8 de Maio) and tucked away in the far corner you will find this restaurant. There were locals and tourists in equal measure and we opted for a table in the square (to watch the children playing in the fountain). The service was very friendly and attentive and the fish and meat dishes we chose were freshly cooked and reasonably priced. Several glasses of local wine later we were so relaxed we were reluctant to leave and watched the families disperse and the street lights come on. We liked Coimbra and this is one of the reasons why.

As a professional former restaurant owner and author of a cookbook, I am frequently disappointed with dining out. I am glad I don't live here as I would quit cooking and eat here every night. What an incredible meal at a fabulous price. And the service was fabulous. We entered with one other table present and watched the place fill completely in 15 minutes. I was amazed to find the server unfazed.

The food came out hot and in a normal time. The pork spare ribs were wonderful as was the veal. Even though we normally eat small portions, the food was so good that we both ate a full meal and all of it.

Thank you for such a wonderful experience in dining.
