Lovely espetada skewers cooked to perfection. Came with a selection of carbs though which we found odd. There was fries, rice and what was allegedly polenta but it tasted like over cooked rice shaped into cubes. Small bowl of lettuce, tomato and cucumber. I would...More

I have just left Barros after my second visit this week. I am usually wary about going back to a restaurant for a second time on holiday as you can end up getting disappointed. But not here as the second visit was even better. The...More

Good evening. You didn’t wait at the door, you waited outside. How are we suppose to acknowledge customers that don’t come into the restaurant especially on a busy Saturday night. Because of this, it obviously took me a while to notice you, but once I...More

Having never eaten Portuguese food before I did not what to expect, but boy the food here is to die for, I had the espetada and my wife had the pork medallions, so if you are near here you must go.

Great service, excellent value menu and fantastic tasting espetadas. Decent wine pricing. Been going for years and will continue to do so. It can be a little cramped but that does not effect the experience.

I didn't see a Children's menu and we visited 4 times in the evening and didn't see any children in. They were very friendly and helpful so I don't think it would be a problem if it was early evening.
