We went to this restaurant because of the TA reviews. We were not let down. First class! Beautiful food. Excellent service. As we were told, Portugal has excellent traditional food; O Bairro is hoping to build on that with variations. World class and at 65 euro incl coffee and port, excellent value.

Delicious dinner, great service, fabulous experience , loved it and don't often review! Starter plate of smoked salmon pate was wonderful, it came with olives and bread. My husband ordered pork belly, so tender with extra light tasty potatoes and vegs . My prawn/lime risotto was one of the best I have ever tasted. We wanted to return the next... More

For some of us going out for a fancy meal usually implies the expectation of a variety of tasty dishes, served by a friendly (or, at least, not hostile) staff in a relaxing and eye pleasing venue, within a reasonable time frame (variable, considering the occasion). Nothing could be farther from the truth regarding my recent experience at the "O... More

The restaurant's pretty good. And the service friendly. Starters were generally fine although not much variety. Fish is the star and it's down very well. Service a bit slow for metropolitan types from Northern Europe. Would I come back? Yes. But there are lots of other good places in the vicinity.

Stopped by Aveiro for a couple hours on the way down from Porto to Albufeira and stumbled upon this restaurant. The staff was very friendly and offered great advice for my road trip down to the south coast. I had the cod which was nicely grilled and cut, the fish was very tender, very well cooked. The place is well... More

A small menu, the food is generally very high quality for the price with interesting and expressive flavours with some outstanding dishes such as the fish stew. Some dishes have unnecessary additions and presentation that can be a bit pretentious and a couple of smaller dishes appear to have been sitting around a bit too long and so were not... More

Just had dinner at O Barrio and every single bite was delicious. Small but good wine list and very warm and friendly service. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone living in or visiting Aveiro.

We booked a table for 5 friends on a saturday lunch. we were greeted with sympathy, good sense of humour and a glass of local sparkling wine. We tried different dishes, including the vegetarian and not only was the presentation beautiful the food was superb!

Facing the local fish market and the canal dos botirões, at the heart of Aveiro's historic center, O Bairro is the place where you'll have one of the best gastronomic experiences of your life. Starting with the "33cl de caldeirada", followed by the fish&seafood rice and finishing with our amazing dessert of "Ovo Mole à Bairro", for sure you'll want to come back on the next day to experience other deli...
