There are so many excellent places to eat in this area that a restaurant really needs to somehow stand out from the others, this one does it by having a very pretty, tucked away, location and providing family-like service. Sitting at one of the tables...More

Fish was extremely fresh, we had the catch of the day, grilled perfectly and nicely laid on the plate, together with very tasty and well cooked vegetables. The starter was very interesting and the dessert was excellent.

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).
