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

We were recommended this restaurant and risked taking two sets of friends there on two consecutive Saturdays! Very comfortable environment and very good food. The advice for wines was spot on both days. A new favourite.

From Trip Advisor and Guide books we were expecting a nice evening in a good restaurant. What we had was beyond our expectations. The warmth of the proprietor and the exceptional food we will not forget. The fish "de Sal" recommended (order 24 hours in advance) but all food was perfect. We will be back!

Nice setting in a beautiful garden. Although it's open all year summer evenings are definitely the best time to visit. Only fresh (not farmed) fish. Good desserts. Own winery, good selection of port wines. Dinner only.

We went after we found the address in our travel guide. We were staying nearby in a golf resort and decided to try something a bit better. We weren't disappointed! Service is personal, professional and friendly. We had a goat cheese and walnut tart, and the algarvian fishstew which both were wonderful. On our second visit we had veal fillet... More

Visited here 10 years ago on our first trip to Portugal. Been back every visit since. The food is amazing, the service is excellent and nothing is too much trouble. The setting is lovely both indoors and outdoors and we will definitely be back again on our next visit. Highly recommended..

Try the tomato soup. It is a great indicator of how good a cook is in the kitchen. At O Barradas the tomato soup tastes like my father-in-law’s home made soup, made from his home grown tomatoes, but better. Until I tasted the tomato soup here, I would have said my father in law’s was the best. Here it tastes... More

3rd time here now. Gets better every time. We were lucky enough with the weather to be able to sit outside which enhances the dining experience. Gorgeous fresh fish and a bottle of the restaurants own wine makes it really special. I love the owners passion for his restaurant. Can't wait to come back next year.

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).
