We happened upon this restaurant almost as we were leaving the old town. There are other newer restaurants outside the old city walls but this one is rather special. The views from the rooftop terrace survey the whole of the river. We were the only people eating on this terrace and it felt like our own little dining room. The food was very tasteful and home cooked with the parents of the house doing the cooking. We had a bruschetta starter which was incredibly fresh and setup the rest of the meal. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Mertola.
