We had a great meal at Dona Barca. Came recommended by out airbnb host, and it did not disappoint. Picked a fresh fich from the display base don the waiter's recommendation, and it was good and cheap!

Nice service however not good food. We did try some very local dishes, the algarve tomato salad was the best we had this dinner. This location is totally overrated. Try their neighbours, we guess they cannot be worse. Have a great time.

We really enjoyed the wonderful sardines there. I liked the atmosphere and the waiters were brilliant. Reasonable prices, good quality. They open at around 7 PM- be there not late than 7:30PM, because is getting really crowded.

They don't really explain the specials of the day, they grunt and say it's all good. Well the sardines were good as was the fish stew. Just put up with the service and you will be Ok.

A very nice encounter in Portimao. We looked for genuine restaurants and we found Dona Barca. The grilled fish is what we highly recommend; Sole, Seabass grilled to perfection! Juicy, tasty, yes we had two dinners and one lunch here (if you come for lunch...More
