Late dinner

I've arrived late and found O Serenata opened. I was really surprised with this traditional restaurant. Really good just in the city downtown.

We ate an averagely priced evening meal, which was a good sized portion served by a friendly waiter. Lots of attention given to the décor. Worth a visit.

I've ordered "Pescada gratinada" should be whitefish cooked in the oven with onion but was some frozen (not sure how fresh was it even) whitefish with half a jar of maionese and ketchup so disgusting... I ate the potatoes that were just fine at least but the fish was just awful. My girlfriend asked for the Filettes with white rice... More

I"m a fish fan, and had the grilled perch. My second grilled fish of the day. It was excellent; came with a salad mixta,and boiled potatoes with a touch of olive oil. The house wine was more than fine. Attentive service, and wonderful atmosphere.

We'd just come back from visiting the Roman ruins in Conimbriga and it was pouring rain.I was going to look for another place but that would have been nuts under the circumstances.So we stumbled into this place, which was a good move.I wound up having what I had heard was a traditional Portuguese dish, cod in heavy cream cooked in...

Had a couple of meals here which were really good, service was super and they even let us have the football on when we asked. Would definately recommend this place for service and quality as well as being really surprised how cheap it was.

And very good too. Friendly people. Close to the river, and a short walk from the centre of the lower town. Not expensive. Extremely convenient if you're staying at the Astoria, too.
