Serves meat, vegan options available. Small and cozy plce in Old Town that serves big tapas and wine. There is a vegetarian section of the menu, and staff is willing to point out which are or could be made vegan. An opportunity to try vegan versions of traditional Portuguese food. Arrive early, or make a reservation. Open Mon-Thu 11:00am-12:00am, Sat 11:00am-1:30am, Sun 11:00am-12:00am.

Vegan awesomeness - Edit

An absolute highlight of the day! After finding Maria’s lovely place on Happy Cow we went there for a late lunch and were amazed by Maria’s heart melting kindness and energy. The food was a dream- Maria presented all the vegan options to us and they were plenty for four people to have a varied meal. Everything was simply delicious and the portions generous. We’re definitely coming back! We would totally give the place 5 starts but the site does not allow it as the restaurant is fully vegan/vegetarian.

Pros: Taste, Quality, Atmosphere

Delicious food in a comfortable atmosphere - Edit

We found this little place while strolling through the oldtown of Coimbra and decided to stop there for a sunny lunch, sitting in the outside area of the small restaurant. The waiter was really helpful in pointing out that mostly all of the vegetarian dishes on the menu could be made vegan and we settled for the "Tapas Bread" with olives and tomatoes (which was enough to please me for the rest of the afternoon) and the "Stuffed mushrooms" that were really delicious and definitely worth trying. It wasn't pricey at all and we really enjoyed the beautiful weather and the hectic life around us.

Pros: Helpful staff, Nice atmosphere, Portuguese food made vegan

A découvrir - Edit

Bien que non végétalien ce restaurant propose des alternatives vegan et ce sans soucis.
Le serveur a été très aimable et nous a bien expliqué ce qui était possible de faire.
Nous avons pris une salade composée de crudités pour deux.
J'ai ensuite pris des pâtes aux pleurotes et épinards avec crème de soja et mon compagnon a pris de son côté des tranches d'aubergines grillées surmontées de tomates fraîches et d'un méli mélo de graines (tournesol lin sésame. ...), le tout passé au four :)
Très bon :)
La salle à l'intérieur est petite mais il y a aussi des tables à l'extérieur.
Bref un bon moment dans un petit resto chaleureux !

Pros: Serveur très gentil Bonne qualité gustative des p

Definitely not worth visiting - Edit

After reading the other reviews I was excited to eat at this restaurant while visiting coimbra but I was very disappointed. First, contrary to other reviews, the vegetarian/vegan options are very limited and are not adaptations of local cuisine. We ordered the pasta with pesto (worst pesto sauce i have had dominated by cheese flavor), mixed vegetable plate (not as described by waiter and instead it was 75% cabbage and no flavor) and oven baked potatoes (totally flavorless potato wedges). We left with half the food still on the table and went to eat somewhere else. I would certainly not recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a good vegan/vegetarian meal in coimbra. With the exception of this restaurant, my entire Portugal trip was full of successful dining experiences recommended on happycow.

Pros: Location, Nice seating

Cons: Food, Inaccurate description of food by waiter, Not a lot of vegan/vegetarian options

Awesome restaurant with vegan options - Edit

Small restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating. Although not fully vegan, it offers several vegetarian and vegan options. make sure to ask the staff about their vegan options as they are not all indicated on the menu card.

The foods served were delicious and the complimentary home-made jeropiga was well-appreciated.

All in all, definitely worth a visit.

Pros: Delicious vegan options. Knowledgeable and flexibl

Sooo good! - Edit

This is a cute, typical portuguese restaurant,with amazing vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. I ate pesto pasta, which is actually vegan and a vegan dish (I asked),but sadly I can only rate it 4 star as it is a non vegetarian restaurant. I d personally give it 5; considering the good meal and the gentleness of the staff.

Pros: vegetarian and vegan options in a non-vegetarian r, typical environment, nice,informative staff

Cons: few vegan alternatives (but staff helps!)

eee135 22 Oct 2016 - For the sake of clarification, I ate at this restaurant and was told that the pesto is not vegan (it contains two types of cheeses). Further, the pesto tastes sour and store-bought from a jar. I would recommend not ordering this dish for people who usually enjoy quality pesto.

Comida rica en un lugar acogedor - Edit

el sitio es pequeñito y acogedor, con ambiente tranquilo, perfecto para cenar teniendo una conversación con alguien. La carta vegetariana está claramente distinguida y hay opciones veganas. Los platos cuestan entre 4 y 10€ y la cantidad es suficiente, no muy abundante pero sí suficiente. La calidad es muy buena, platos cocinados muy bien y con buenos ingredientes.
