Coimbra Restaurants: 21 reviews and 24 photos

Ze Manel dos Ossos (downtown, near Coimbra's railway station.
Quim dos Ossos (near Avenida Sa da Bandeira).
The employees humor. Absolutly fantastic.
The walls are full of pieces of paper towels. When people go there they use to write something on the towel and fix it on the walls. There are texts written in several languages: portuguese (the majority), spanish, english, chinese...
On a wall there is a placard with a picture of a fat man eating and a sentence written on the top: 'Eat sh*t! 487 billion flies can't be wrong.'

Favorite Dish: Javali with beans at Zé Manel dos Ossos (around 7 Euros per person).
