Once again we visited O Barradas in our first week back in the Algarve. The restaurant is the same from last year. Fantastic food, perfect service by all the staff and very reasonable in price. I just love this restaurant. We shall be back soon.

We were recommended to go here from a friend who lives near by and we were not disappointed. We both opted for the specials of fresh tuna followed by red snapper. The tuna was unbelievable. Incredibly tender and so tasty it barely needed anything else...More

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).
