Armazém Vilaça -Restaurant and Museum

One restaurant/museum of Pharmacy in downtown

In 2008, Amadeu Carvalho bought two buildings in downtown Coimbra. At the time, degraded and in need of substantial work. He started with the building that still host “Farmácia Vilaça” (Vilaça Pharmacy) today in “Rua Ferreira Borges”.

Recently, he put himself to work and decided to recover the building located behind “Farmácia Vilaça”‘ which during many years acted like a warehouse for the pharmacy. This is how the Restaurant “Armazém Vilaça” (Vilaça Warehouse) was born.

In all the renewal they privilieged original materials and artifacts, creating thus a space restaurant/museum also dedicated to the exhibition of old utensils that had been part of the pharmaceutical function that existed there and that remains in its character.

The restaurant works on the first two floors of the building number 8 on the street “Adro de Cima” and intends to offer a upscale gastronomic experience while maintaining the essence of traditional Portuguese cuisine. The young Chef Ricardo Moita, with bringing international experience, is responsible for the creativity placed in each dish.

The “Armazém Vilaça”  is permanently closed
