Coimbra has always been a family favourite for a tasty Sunday lunch especially the Peri Peri chicken and chips. Relaxed and informal dinning with a variable menu that's well priced and always enjoyable. It never fails to satisfy!

A relaxed and causal Portuguese restaurant. Plenty of good value chicken and other meat dishes on the menu. Staff friendly. Only drawback they do not take MasterCard or cheques. Where other smaller places do.

Sorry - only seen your message now. If you still need your table maybe contact the owners directly and see if you can make a transfer across to them? Or Ecocash?
