The name PASSEITE comes from 'azeite da familia Passos'. The owners, Gui and Marije fell in love with the olive oil production and took over the small family farm near Condeixa. Marije is an olive oil sommelier and Gui comes from a family being in the restaurant business for all their lives. Rua da Sota, nr. 44-48 | 00351 910 718 182
Since they know the quality of the Portuguese olive oils they decided to dedicate their business to promote this industry, opening a small restaurant showing how olive oil makes a difference on your plate. Not in a Michelin star kind of way but in a warm and cosy tavern using local and mostly organic food. There is no butter in their kitchen, proving that with olive oil you can make almost everything taste delicious! With their small team they offer seasonal menus and have over 20 different kinds of olive oils from small producers from all over Portugal. They are vegan and vegetarian friendly.
DUX TABERNA URBANA is a restaurant that intends to enchant the spirit of the true urban taverns, and although it has in common with these historical spaces of the city the variety of snacks and wines, it assumes its own identity! Rua Dr. Manuel Rodrigues nr. 39 | 00351 239 093 723
Here you can taste the most varied traditional Portuguese snacks, such as fried cod or a delicious woodpecker and also creative snacks such as 'farinheira' (traditional sausage) with caramelized pear, mushrooms with sausage and egg and the 'vazia' (beef) with sauce of 'Serra da Estrela' cheese. Like any good tavern, this place has a wine list with dozens of references, which mirrors well the variety and quality of Portuguese wines, allowing you to choose wine by glass in order to better harmonize with the snacks.
CANTINHO DA MARISOL opened by the hands of an architect and interior designer, who in giving pottery classes to children with disabilities realized that she could also provide experiences of art therapy to the local population. Adro de Cima, Loja 1 | 00351 961 805 506
In the course of these experiences came the idea of opening a space with its own name in the historic area of the city!

Do not miss a visit to this unique space in downtown Coimbra... and take a souvenir with you!
