First Review by Tullio

Don't hesitate, try it out! - Edit

We we're so glad that we found this place in Coimbra, cause there aren't many restaurants there that are veggie-friendly. The food here was the best we are during our trip in this city. The portions were big, the food is vegan and fresh. For only €6,50, we had the choice between two dishes. We tried both and enjoyed them very much. The girl who worked there was very nice and explained our options in English. The galeries where the restaurant is located is a bit strange, it looked a bit empty. But don't let that be a reason not to go inside and have a lovely vegan meal!

Huge portions!! - Edit

Great little place inside a very quiet shopping centre (upstairs). Huge servings and some nice desserts. Frequented by locals (probably because of the generous servings!) Friendly and helpful service.

Excellent - Edit

This was a vegetarian restaurant before, becoming now one of the best vegan places where I've been. Everything was delicious - full menu 10 € - you'll be satisfied for sure,

Congrats,

Miguel

Pros: Delicious Food, Everything Vegan, Vegan deserts - sugar free

Ótima opção! - Edit

Apesar da pouca decoração, o restaurante é limpo e agradável, e tem um bom espaço. Não sou grande apreciador de comida macrobiótica, mas gostei muito da refeição e voltarei com certeza. Estava muito saborosa! Os funcionários são muito simpáticos, explicaram bem toda a comida. O preço é acessível, e o prato é bem servido. Paguei 10€ por sopa+prato+infusão+sobremesa.

Vegan haven in Coimbra - Edit

This cosy and friendly restaurant is a true vegan haven in Coimbra. All the food served at Cozinha Consciente is now vegan.

Me and my wife ate a very hearty and varied meal at lunch time. The soup included brown rice and mung beans, while my plate was filled with a heartwarming combination of cereals, legumes, vegetables, salad, and seitan cooked in the oven. And the dessert was a delicious coconut water and carob pudding.

I must say that this meal was probably the most satisfying and nutritionally complete that we had at a restaurant for a long time. And of course we were thrilled to know that everything was vegan.

If you're in Coimbra or nearby, I highly recommend that you go to Cozinha Consciente for a tasty and very satiating meal.

Pros: Plate full of varied types of foods, Care taken in the plate presentation, Moderate price

Simple, nourishing food. - Edit

First time at Menu Verde. It is self-service style. Two of the three main courses were vegan, and the staff clearly understood what vegan food is.

The food was nourishing, tasty and incredibly good value.

Would recommend if you are in Coimbra.

I am not sure if the staff speak English, I speak Portuguese, but 'Vegan' is generally understood to mean Vegan.

Pros: Vegan options, Helpful staff, Good value

Cons: Location - within a shopping mall

Menu Verde Status 2012 - Edit

Was at Menu Verde June 2012. Firstly it was a little difficult to find. The restaurant is inside the centre Galarias Topazio and you have to go up the stairs to the 2. floor. It is a quiet and clean place - serves simple, not spiced vegetarian food - it is more like a canteen/folks kitchen feeling. Not too suitable for vegans - they make vegan meals on request however.

Pros: very friendly staff, quiet place, clean

Cons: not very good for vegans

Ambiente muy familiar - Edit

Nos costo un poco encontrar el sitio, porque este dentro de una galeri­a comercial un poco escondida. Pero merecio la pena. Almorzamos un menu con arroz integral y verduras muy rico acompañado de un seitan asado delicioso. Pedimos ademas un batido de soja y frambuesas yummmm!
Tienes que especificar que eres vegano.
Recomendado!

Pros: Buena relacion calidad precio, Trato amable y familiar, Sitio tranquilo

Cons: Un poco díficil de encontrar

good restaurant - Edit

The restaurant is not too far from the city center. It's at the last floor of a mall. The food was good, I had a really good seitan roast and fresh lemon juice (they have a lot of choices). They didn't speak English but it wasn't a problem at all. I strongly recommend it!!!

Pros: price, food
