We ate here and had a really lovely meal. The restaurant had a cafe on the ground floor and a restaurant above on the 1st floor which is where we had our meal. It was busy with Portugese families out for Saturday evening, which we thought was a good indication of the food and service. I had a delicious fish... More

Without knowing what to encounter, we selected this restaurant in Serpa's main place. As the dining room is on the first floor, one can not see if you'd the only guest or not. But the bacalhau was the best I ever ate. And, a large portion. Friendly staff, attractive prices. And, if you're there at the time of the Cante... More
