The Restaurant


World Heritage

At the heart of the uptown of Coimbra, in front of the old cathedral and 50 meters away from the University (the oldest university in the country and one of the world’s oldest, founded March 1, 1290 by King D. Dinis), you can find the restaurant o Trovador, since 1987.

It is a mandatory stop for all Portuguese or foreign visitors who appreciate the excellence of the Portuguese Cuisine and the sound of guitars and voices of prestigious musicians of “Fado de Coimbra”.

The story of O Trovador is, all of it, filled with many other stories, on which, every day, is added another chapter.

“Those who enter in O Trovador enter in their home.”

We appreciate the consideration, attention and affections for those who make us feel happy: customers/friends.

Their recognition is written on the walls of the restaurant – whether it comes from doctors, “futricas” or students of Coimbra, writers, teachers, journalists, actors, businessmen, politicians or athletes – people from here or distant, from famous or anonymous places, but, and above all, good people who have honoured the O Trovador with their presence and their encouragement.

So we feel proud, and assume responsibility for Creating Emotions for Life!
