Lovely environment, lovely menu, excellent food - had prawn kebab, followed by special kebab and then a Portuguese tart desert - all 100%. As was the cover appetiser (should have been two plates though) and the wines. Sadly, somehow let down by service. Charming male waiter, but the female waitress less than attentive. Also bathrooms lacked supplies, as it were.... More

We went out with friends for a good evening together and all were very impressed. All the other favourable reviews look true - very competent and warm staff, excellent food and (in Winter) a cosy dining room with wood fire. We spent a touch over 40 euros a head, which is expensive for the area, but we had a superb... More

We eat at O Barradas several times a year and it is always worthwhile. Luis and his wife, the owners, strive for excellence and achieve it. My wife took the fixed menu - walnut & sweet potato quiche, pork fillet in a good sauce and then chocolate mousse garnished with preserved plum. I chose from the a la carte menu... More

Enjoyed an excellent meal here with friends, sat next to a log fire. Large choice on the menu, but finally settled for the seabass main course, which was probably the best I have ever tasted, accompanied by a good white wine. The huge blackboard of dessert choices, which did not disappoint, were more than enough reasons for returning here again... More

Love this restaurant. Outside in the summer with twinkling lights in the trees is magical. In winter inside with the log fire burning is cosy. The food especially the fish is good quality and fresh. Good wine particularly their own which you can buy to take away with you. Well worth the effort to drive there.

Wow is all I can say to this little find. I visited Silves in October to get married and needed a restaurant that could fit 30guests the night before at short notice. The owners were amazing and met with me on the afternoon and regardless of the short notice still made room for us. They even designed a beautiful menu... More

The cooking style of Restaurante "O Barradas" is based on original Portuguese cuisine and recipes adapted into a more contemporary defined taste. We only chose the best ingredients often found in the local region and serve daily fresh fish caught in Sagres and the tenderest meat from the North of Portugal (Mirandesa).
