“Nice tea house”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

This is a nice tea house and a little restaurant well located inside the gardens of Casa de Serralves. The "exquisite" teas and the scones are very good, and the service is competent. I recommend a visit on early Sunday mornings, when Casa de Serralves is opened to the public and not crowded.

“Nice location, but poor or little choices”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

The location is nice within the Serralves gardens and the staff is very friendly. However, when we went there, we had to change our order two or three times, since they did not have what we were choosing from the menu. The waiter told us that they had open recently, which would explain the lack of products, but it still gives us a bad impression overall. I hope this changes, because it seems to have a lot of potential

“Too expensive for the poor service and food they serve”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

The restaurant of such a beautiful museum should be as amazing as the museum. The service was incredibly bad, and the food wasn't worth it's price. The only good thing they still have is the view of the nature surrounding the restaurant.

“Decent buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

This restaurant is a pleasant place to eat especially if you can get a table by the long window. I enjoyed a weekend buffet lunch there. I am told that the spread is not nearly as lavish as it used to be but it seems enough. There were three mains. First was a veggie lasagna that I liked. Second was that Portuguese favourite, duck rice. This was well prepared and tasty but too dry. Considering that I had some from a tray that had just been put out, I must suppose that it was in the oven for too long. And third was a salmon florentine that was the best I have ever had. The appetisers, salads and desserts were nothing special.
