With Zimbabwe's economy in freefall, over a million percent inflation and one US dollar currently worth 115 billion (yes, billion) Zimbabwe dollars, by the time you've finished your meal of Portuguese peri-peri chicken at Coimbra, the bill will probably come to twice what the waiter quoted you when you order. Never mind - it's 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.
