We were bitterly disappointed with the service due to the abnormal wait time, which in turn ruined the food. My boyfriend and I arrived at the beginning of lunch hour and by the time we placed our order, the restaurant was quickly filling up with clientele, this first wait time was long but understandable with any popular restaurant (20-30min), unfortunately...

Very quick service, but I must say the staff is quite rude and the tables are very tight, no space to walk between them. The food was good and very cheap.

We go to Portugal twice a year and always go here. Quality of food is exceptional (quantity the same). Service is what makes it the best. Get there early as its always packed.

I went there on several ocasions, I ate Salmon and "Picanha", for me this is the best Picanha in town. I like the ideia of the dessert bar, they bring you several desserts so you may try all of them. I recomend it for families and friends. But be carefull to go there early because they are always full :p

Good option for a lunch or dinner with very tasty food, excellent deserts and good wine for a very reasonable price. The staff is really nice. It's a bit noise but it's worthwhile.

We went to this place attracted to the comments we heard around city, and must say, all true! Passioned by food, always trying locals... it was great. Really kind staff, good food, price even better; spent €54 in 4 people with at least 3 bottles of wine, starters, shrimps, bacalao, picanha, side dishes, desserts... One tip to the owners, go...

It's a nice place to go for lunch or dinner even if it's a bit too loud. Food is standard, nothing too fancy and the price tag is matching the overall atmosphere and quality. Do make a reservation or at least get there early.

After reading the good reviews (and wanting a change from Portuguese cuisine) we decided to visit O Telheiro. We walked from the centre of Coimbra, which only took about 25 mins but took us by a very busy road - we initially thought we were lost, but it's definitely worth the trip. We arrived at around 7pm and the restaurant... More

My friend and I stopped here for lunch on our way back to Lisbon from the Douro Valley because of the high rating in Trip Advisor. It was a terrific experience. The waiter was no nonsense and very helpful. I think we were likely the only tourists in the place for lunch -- it had a very "local" feel to... More
