SENAC restaurant is a restaurant school offering a buffet service for lunch. Service by the students is nearly impeccable, and the buffet puts emphasis on well prepared local dishes, including several options of fish, beef, pasta, salads, etc.; on Fridays the buffet consists of sea-food.

The Senac restaurant is just in the middle of the old town, what makes it the perfect spot for lunch during a tour. The food is traditional, well made. Good to try the local recipes. The service is great, very fast, organized.

Popped in for a lunch. Service is very good and the food is excellent quality. A bit pricier than many local restaurants, but not excessively though. Worth the extra for the ambience and the live piano.

Many choices on the buffet, lots of taste adventures, and a moderate price. Service from the students can be a little confused and uncertain, but who cares? The food experience is lovely.
