I have been many times at Churrasqueira Restaurant. It is so good that they do not accept reservation. It is not easy to get in for dinner, but people don't mind waiting. You can also get the foot to take it home, but expect a great crowd. All this is a sign that the restaurant is very good. The specialty... More

The food is always amazing. When was pregnant I lived on their roasted chicken and steamed veggies. On this partucular visit we were... More

Just took my twin brother to dinner, and we found this wonderful restaurant. This restaurant/Churrascaria serves rodizio style. Today though, we were not hungry. So we skipped rodizio style, but you need to know it looked really good. The people in the tables around us looked quite happy, especially the kids. So I ordered Entranha, which is grilled skirt steak.... More

This restaurant is great. It is a home made Portuguese Restaurant. The food is great. The main and different dish is the chicken on barbecue. It is delicious, I am not fun of chicken, but this one you die to eat. It is a little kick spice and because they cooke in the really natural wood charcoal, the flavor is... More

Ridiculous amounts of food and all washed down with delicious red sangria. As well as all the meats on offer (chicken, pork, turkey, sausage, prime rib, top sirloin) there were lots of side dishes too.

We have been to this restaurant many times and will meet friends here for dinner. Everyone we have introduced to Bairrada raves about it. We were here twice in a row with different people. We had the Rodizio, the Swordfish, the Bronzini, and the Grilled Shrimp and Squid Shish Kabob. Everything was well prepared and excellent. The Bronzini is amazing.... More

My significant other is Portuguese, and we have been to many local Portuguese restaurants, and Bairrada is by far the best. Most people go for the all you can eat, but the individual entrees are better - succulent skirt steak, excellent roasted baby pig on Sundays. All served with salad and rice/potatoes/veg. Leave room for dessert!

In a business trip, and because I am portuguese, I was insistently told about this restaurant and went there also to check if I could meet portuguese people. I was surprised that the food is actually incredibly good. We had to wait half an hour for a table, but it was worth it. Three tables were celebrating birthdays. I guess... More
