Coimbra is one of those rare places that flourishes in spite of itself. There's no fanfare, no fancy decoration, but the customers just keep coming back for more. Why? Because the food (especially the famous peri-peri chicken) is terrific - a far better bet than the tired chicken you'll get from Harare's fast-food outlets - and the atmosphere is unique. Though offering Portuguese cooking, as far as the decor is concerned, think run-down bungalow outside Eastbourne rather than Algarve palace. The line of Mercs and Range Rovers on the scruffy sidewalk outside give the game away - the food is, basically, excellent and the clients don't give a damn what the place looks like. Cheerful, friendly staff, quick service and reasonable prices - what more could you wish for?
