Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

O Bairro is an excellent fish restaurant with passionate personnel. They specialize in Portuguese rice dishes and particularly fish dishes. We had scallops with black rice and fisherman's catch with tomato rice and both were delicious. The innkeeper is a central character and has the...time to talk to all customers, which creates a nice atmosphere. Booking a table is very difficult and the best way is to go there in person. O Bairro is worth a recommendation.More

Staff were very passionate & knowledgeable about menu. We had prawn & veal rissoto - both delicious. Great & busy atmosphere for a Tuesday evening. Would definitely recommend.

I made a reservation based on the reviews here and it did not disappoint. I felt welcomed from the moment I entered the patio. The food was delicious, a risotto better than most I have had in Italy! The price was incredibly reasonable for the...area and the quality of the food. Highly recommend and I’d return at the next opportunity. Also, they speak many languages including English, French, Spanish and a bit of Italian - which is very helpful.More

We ate here on a Sunday evening. The food was delicious and the service was very good. The menu is reasonably varied and is not your standard fare for the area. The maitre’d did a great job of explaining why the restaurant is different and...he was true to his word.More

Great find in Aveiro! I had a salmon black ink risotto–perhaps the best black ink risotto I’ve had thus far in the background of the picture). The salmon was nicely done sous vide style, topped with shaved fennel. My wife had a bass on a...green risotto with clams and a side of fried seaweed, topped with a citrus foam made out of lime, lemon, and orange juice—incredible! Highly recommended!More

We were in Aveiro just for a few hours, came into town to walk around and see the gondolas. We were unsure where to eat, the proprietor saw my husband and flagged him into the restaurant. What we ended up having was the absolute best...meal of our trip to Portugal! Grilled sea bass, risotto with seaweed/spirulina, lime foam, fried seaweed. Absolutely every flavor was unique and delicious. It was complimented with a cold glass of vinho verde. What a great treat!! We are still talking about it.More

Quite a small restaurant by the old fish market. Excellent attentive staff. Very good risottos. We had a very pleasant evening and would go back.

We had a truly memorable lunch at O Bairro. Stopping in Aveiro on drive from the Douro Valley to Lisbon, a quick survey of lunch spots led us to this restaurant, close to the famous canals and the fish market. It exceeded our expectations. From...the moment we asked about a table, the friendly and hilarious staff treated our family of four with great warmth--even though our family had one unpredictable toddler who got fussy at points. We ate outside, and with little wait even during the lunch rush, we soon found ourselves enjoying their risotto and bass with seaweed two ways (risotto, a house specialty, was a particular high point). The scallop/mango appetizer was fantastic, and our children enjoyed the roast beef and children's fixed price menu (an incredible value). What was particularly notable was that all of the food was both delicious and prepared with a striking presentation--even for the children. We added two glasses of wine from local producers. With that, we had the most memorable meal from a 10-day trip that spanned the Douro Valley to Grandola. Highly recommended.More

Delicious seafood with risotto and seaweed. Food was fresh, hot and well presented. Services was prompt and pleasant. Prices were higher than neighboring restaurants but selection seemed better.
