Been there a few days ago. I took a table in the smaller part of the restaurant. They had the menu translated in various languages. Eaten very well and the staff was helpful. If you expect big quantity over quality, don't go. I will go again if time permits.

We were lucky to grab the last table at this lovely tapas place. Food was very good - plentiful despite tapas, and wine options were really excellent. Great atmosphere as well.

Try the cod and other tapas you will enjoy them. Get stable on the window and enjoy the wine. Great service from friendly people. Good value for money.

Decided to try fangas mercearia bar based on the review in lonely planet and the recommendation from our hotel. The food was fantastic, I like the small plate format because it allowed us to try more items. Service was incredibly friendly and helpful, it was a fantastic place to spend an evening.

We headed to Fangas for dinner, as it was one of the most recommended places in Coimbra in our Lonely Planet. As always we were not let down. Everything was extremely delicious - from the bread to the stuffed peppers, from the cod with chickpeas puree to the aubergines. We had too much food so didn't have the chance (or... More

I was excited by the reviews I read before, but didn't get the same good impression. The service was super super slow, I felt myself invisible there to get the menu, to order, to pay, etc. The portions were tasty indeed, but very small, which makes me feel it was a bit overpriced.

We found Fangas through Tripadvisor but unfortunately it was full (which is a good sign ofcourse). So we made reservations for the next day. The waiter remembered our name the next day, which turned out to be typical for the way he treated us: extremely attentive and friendly. The food was amazing as well. I'm sure it won't matter what...

It was nice to just eat the right amount and not too much. We love the baskets of bread, the cheese and olives, but this time we just had the tapas; 4 for two people, and it was perfect. We got a glass of pink wine and a glass of moscatel aperitif. Then, an eggplant and cheese baked dish, blood... More

A great place for tapas. In the heart of Coimbra city. A place where traditional and trendy blend. I advise two tapas per person. Advise on hot dishes: pepper with alheira, mushroom with alheira and cheese rolling. In the cold dishes: Any of cheese or sausage. The desserts are also sublime. The service is slow, go with time.
