My husband and I enjoyed a charming meal at Bizarro. The place is family run, the owners are friendly and speak great English. Our waiter recommended the goat and cod, so we had one of each. Both were delicious. We noticed many local folk coming...More

We recently spent 3 nights in Coimbra. The restaurant we original wanted to try was closed that evening and we wandered by Bizarro on a nearby side street. The goat and veal dishes were great. The waiter was very helpful and the service was good....More
