Had lunch here yesterday and it was a most enjoyable experience. Food was excellent with a large choice of interesting starters,great steaks, and lovely deserts. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff efficient and friendly. It is also just a couple of minutes from the salinas (salt pans.Would reccomend a visit.

It was my first moment at Cantinho da Serra. We went there per my wife's recommendation. The food is real Portuguese food...very typical. For starters and deserts they don't ask you what you want...they just bring everything to the table and you can return if you wish, however it will be very hard to return anything because everything looks very...
