Tradicional, elegant and well decorated place. Amazing food and service. Been here a few times when in Serpa visiting family. As a London resident where most places are laud crowded and noisy, Pedra de Sal is the perfect place to have a relaxing meal. The best one in Serpa!

We ate there 2 nights. The chef Anna cooked us a special Portuguese meal which was fabulous. Very friendly staff. Great prices. Loved it. Would recommend it anyone visiting Serpa. One of our best meals during 3 weeks in Portugal.

The restaurant is outside the city walls and therefore very easy to find. Parking is plentiful and the service is outstanding.

Lovely small restaurant in the middle of Alentejo, with home-made cuisine. I've been there twice, always perfect! My favourite dish is "Bacalhau com espinafres", but everything else is also great, especially the desserts.

The restaurant has very tasty (traditional) food, a nice service had it is affordable, even tough a bit higher priced than the restaurants in the same city. It is a bit isolated from the Center, but it's closeby.

I'm glad to add this restaurant to the places ill always refer when going to Serpa. Went for dinner and ate the Octopus and Black Porc "secretos". Both of the dishes were godlike! The octopus "A lagareiro" is as simple as fantastic. 5 ingredients: Octopus, potatoes, olive oil, garlic, salt... To result in such a good dish of course the... More

A bit hard to find but well worth it. From the outside it looks similar to a warehouse. We were too early, as we usually seem to be in Portugal, but we were rewarded after a short wait with staff who were friendly and patient with our attempts at Portuguese. We enjoyed good food and the interesting décor. We sat... More

Restaurant Pedra de Sal (Stone of salt) lays just outside the historic centre of Serpa. Nice interior with about 30 places. We went on a Wednesday evening around 8 o'clock and only one table was already taken. Later two more tables entered so with us this meant 4 tables taken. Not crowded. Friendly reception and helpful waitress. The classical bread... More

You may not find it right a way but, as all good things in life, persistence is rewarded by large. Run by a dedicated family, the tastes take you back in time when a dinner was a ritual and dishes were prepared for long hours. Excelent price/quality.
