O'barradas is the best restaurant in the Algarve. The house wine has just won the gold medal for best Algarve wine and deserves it. Luis makes everyone welcome and sources fresh fish from local fishermen. The veal is brilliant and desert menu has so many great choices.

Our taxi driver recommended this place (and not just to get the fare..) eight for dinner - and it was simply the best all round dining experience we have had on the Algarve. Ambience food wine service all top notch- and given the... More

O Barradas is situated halfway between Silves and Lagoa so you need to drive there. It is very popular particularly with the expat community and worth ringing ahead to book. They do a set menu at about 23 euros without wine also a good a la carte menu. Plenty of fresh fish. Food is well cooked and presented and service... More

Loved everything about this restaurant. The food, service, wine, ambience. We came upon it as a recommendation from one of the staff where we are staying. The ambience was terrific in a lovely setting with a glowing fire in the fireplace. The menu is varied with some traditional Portuguese dishes. I ordered as a starter the soft goat cheese with...

About two thousand bottles were made. The grapes from which this Syrah is made were previously used for the Touriga Nacional and... More

Have enjoyed many visits to this restaurant over the years, it never fails to please. We had heard that Luis was selling up and that somebody else now ran it, this is not true and on speaking to him last night he has NO plans to sell. So it remains in his very capable hands and really does provide the... More

Could not be better! Worth every cent. We have been there several times and every time our conclution has been to return. Exelent service, good food and wine from the own wineyard which is a must! No one could be disapointed visiting this restaurant if not looking for stars in the guide.

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

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).
