We had such a lovely time st O Bairro. We did have to wait 45 mins for a table but then when we were seated, 4 glasses of champagne (on the house) awaited us. The shrimp and lime risotto is out of this world as...More

What a wonderful experience...we were greeted and told that, while the menu is entirely in Portuguese, they would happily translate. We both had the fish stew (served in a glass) and shared the large tureen of seafood rice. Each bite seemed better than the last,...More

"O Bairro" stands for "The neighborhood" so expect typical Aveiro decorations and dressings and a typical Portuguese menu with a personal touch. 5 characters, based on real life I suppose, are illustrated and described on the table paper towel. It was fun to read and...More

O Bairro is (one of) the best restaurants in Aveiro. If you want to have a great dinner, go to this place. They offer you an interesting and inspirational meal for a good price for that quality. Portuguese tradition meets the 21th century in the...More

We read about this place on TA, in a guidebook, and our AirB+B host recommended it, so had to give it a try. Good thing we booked as people being turned away all evening. The restaurant has a clear vision and we applaud their attempts...More

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.
