Barbas offers great food, great views BUT his waiters are sort of getting old and cranky! Some love their job and cherish their clients, others are stuck in Castro Communist I hate you attitude and let's face it! It is MY MONEY PAYING their salary! Therefore do NOT be shy, ask bluntly to the waiter ARE YOU NICE OR CRANCKY,... More

Had a lovely lunch here today. I chose the Gambas (prawns in garlic) it was one of the best I've tasted and a generous portion. There's a set menu of 3 courses for around €15. Very busy but happy waiters.

The restaurant is OK if you're looking for a typical restaurant with a very portuguese approach on how to cook fish. Stay on fish and you'll be just fine.

The waiter was nice-not overly friendly. We had the steak and fries-not good at all. Tasted pan fried and over cooked! No seasoning or ketchup for fries. We had a salad with it and no dressing-tried to contact the waiter to ask for some but he was too busy with other customers. I feel there are better places to eat... More

We just had a caldeirada but it was a caldeirada as it shoud be. We wanted caldeirada for two, the waiter told us that we really want it for one person :). So we ordered. We managed to eat only a half of it. It was super big and delicious. We paid around 30Euro for a lunch for two with... More

The waiters are so rude. They are not professional. The WiFi password is benficabarbas. I wrote because waiters are very rude to give password. Foods are ok.

It's a nice restaurant in a "not so nice" beach, known mostly for it's waves. Good fresh grilled fish.

For a beach front restaurant this place served up a nice selection of food, which was pleasantly appetising. Even the staff attempted to speak English which was nice. Plate of pasta with Prawns for the wife and a steak and chips/salad for me. Wife enjoyed the pasta, and I have to say the steak and chips were the first I... More

Not knowing where to go in an still unknown village we passed with 7 persons Barbas. A restaurant which looked like the fan house of Bendica. It did not excite me from the outside but we were late and the kids were hungry, so we went in. Full house; so we had to wait. It was worth waiting Very friendly... More

If you want to try Portuguese sea food, Barbas is the place. It is not the cheapest place, but the food certainly is awesome. Eusebio was Barbas friend so whenever you are there you will see pictures of Benfica in its glory. Don't forget to try the amazing Cataplana or Arroz de Marrisco. After eating more than you can cope... More
