“LOVE IT, cosy, deliciuos, friendly,”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

Great place to take friends out for a long dinner, with great Sangria, tradicional tapas, our delicious dishes. A place to take time to enjoy a great meal, by the sound of music, in a calm and intimat ambience. We love to have our into the late night dinners there.

“Great seafood at reasonable price”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

A very busy restaurant filled with mostly locals. We had the shrimp açorda (a bread stew) which was perfect comfort food, as well as fried sardines and grilled octopus. Everything was delicious, and the service was efficient, friendly and considerate. The prices were all reasonable, and we felt we had a typical Portuguese night out.

“Excellent fish restaurant”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

We visited in March on recommendation from the guesthouse we were staying in. It was Tuesday and the restaurant was busy with families and business guests alike. We had the starters they placed on the table which were little parcels filled with minced fish or vegetables and grilled tiny peppers. You don't have to eat what they tempt you with, you can say no and order what you like, but we thought they looked so good we had them and even ordered more!
For mains we had Dourada and Skate which came with wonderful steamed greens and tasty chips and we had a good salad on the side. With a 3 beers and a very good glass of house wine we were full and rolled out into the fresh night air to catch our train back to Porto. For 39.90€ we thought it was good value. Do visit this unpretentious restaurant you won't be disappointed.

“Reasonably priced and well cooked, tasty food”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

We both had fish, him golden bream, me skate and both were delicious and very well cooked.

Like many restaurants in Porto, they bring you food that you haven't ordered. If you haven't encountered this before, you should know that if you eat it, you will be expected to pay for it. They don't take offence, however, if you turn it away. Generally though, it was very well priced so we just had everything and enjoyed it!

“Excellent fresh fish at a very good price”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

The principal specialty of Matosinhos is fresh fish. At Casa Serrão you can find all kinds of fish, mainly grilled on coal. We also had a plate a fried green peppers “pardon” and delicious deserts. The service was quick and very friendly.
