Tips / Destination

Portugal’s university town of Coimbra is a cultural hot spot thanks to the youthful energy and variety of foreign expats residing here. Finding a great restaurant is no problem, but choosing which one to eat at on any given day can be daunting.

 

La Botiga Bistro

La Botiga Bistro is Coimbra’s finest tapas bar and an affordable choice for those on a budget. The Portuguese sausage alone is rave-worthy, but the minimalistic bistro is most famous for its delicious chocolate cake and espresso.

 

Café Santa Cruz

Café Santa Cruz sits alongside the city’s town hall, making it the perfect spot to stop for a bite when exploring. The Renaissance architecture of the restaurant provides a wonderful atmosphere for live music while you dine on tasty pastries and Portuguese coffee.

 

Fangas Mercearia Bar

Fangas Mercearia Bar is a Portuguese tapas bar tucked away in the medieval walls of the city’s old town. Excellent seafood options, including steamed mussels, along with a wide array of wines hailing from all over the country make it the perfect spot to relax after a day exploring the city.

 

Zé Manel dos Ossos

Zé Manel dos Ossos is a traditional Portuguese tasca with quite the interesting décor — the walls inside the restaurant are covered with poems written by happy customers. The house specialties include goat and boar paired with delectable wines from Coimbra’s hill region. The restaurant is a wonderful option for a relaxing evening or even a special date.
