This is a very typical portuguese restaurant. Here you can find good food made with love. The codfish is the best in town. The price is fair, you will not pay more than 25€/person with main dish + dessert + wine.

First restaurant we tried was full so tried this one. Very pleased we did. The waitress was friendly and helpful, the food freshly cooked with generous portions and reasonably priced. The house wine was also good.

Went here for a quick lunch and were not disappointed. We had the steak and the salmon dishes- note that steak medium in this part of the world is really rare ! Used by business men as well as tourists.

This restaurant is located on a quiet small street in the lower town. Take a short walk There. The outside and inside are very attractive and typical Portuguese decor. The food on the other hand is not the best in the area. Price wise it's inexpensive. But, in this area there are several better eateries for the same price near... More

I've arrived late and found O Serenata opened. I was really surprised with this traditional restaurant. Really good just in the city downtown.

We ate an averagely priced evening meal, which was a good sized portion served by a friendly waiter. Lots of attention given to the décor. Worth a visit.

I"m a fish fan, and had the grilled perch. My second grilled fish of the day. It was excellent; came with a salad mixta,and boiled potatoes with a touch of olive oil. The house wine was more than fine. Attentive service, and wonderful atmosphere.
