Housed in the building of an ancient ceramics factory dating back to 1824, the restaurant Refeitro da Baixa is a true must of Coimbra. Specialised in Mediterranean flavours, this unique spot offers a challenging gastronomic experience!
The ceramics factory - Cerâmica Antiga de Coimbra - continues to work from Monday to Friday and the tableware service used in the restaurant is produced in the factory. Guests can actually watch the ceramics-making process in a specific workshop organised by Refeitro da Baixa, combined with a delicious meal around the ancient ovens.
This restaurant is based on traditional recipes with that special touch of author cuisine. Located in the downtown of Coimbra, Refeitro da Baixa is an important testimony of industrial archaeology. The architecture of the building is particularly striking. The restaurant is separated from the ceramics factory through glass walls, creating an elegant atmosphere where modernity goes hand in hand with tradition.
