“FANTASTIC!”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us on our arrival in Tavira and we were not disappointed when we tried it. In fact we ended up eating there four times during our holiday! The food is outstanding, the service excellent and the staff are really friendly.

“BEST RESTAURANT IN TAVIRA”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

We were recommended to visit this restaurant by local ex pats and on our first visit to Da Bairrada we were made to feel very very welcome. All the staff were friendly and the Owner Carlos (who speaks English very well) made a great fuss of us, providing us with extra items which were not even shown on the menu. Their Steak on the Stone is to die for!! A huge lump of fillet beef which you cook yourself. It is brought to the table rare and you cook it yourself to taste. Another great favourite was the chicken and pineapple skewers. When it comes to dessert, go for one of the house specials - made up by the Owners wife - just let her know which fruit you like and wait for the experience!!! Another good point is that the restaurant is always full of local Portuguese - a good recommendation for any restaurant..... We tried to visit other recommended restaurants in the area, but none had the same service, quality of food or welcoming staff shown by the Bairrada - Well Done Carlos and all your staff!!!!

“Good family restaurant.”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 via mobile

13 of us (5 kids) went for dinner. Service was attentive. Drinks and food served reasonably promptly. Delicious fresh juices. We had hot rock steaks, prawn, chicken kebabs and suckling pork. All absolutely delicious and very generous portions. Kids could play in mini playground with sand, swings and slide. Terrace lovely for outdoor eating. All in all highly recommended!

“AWESOME ALGARVE MEAL”
Reviewed 25 July 2013 via mobile

Sitting on veranda under grapevine pergola. Finished a delicious meal. Thirteen in our party - all satisfied having enjoyed delicious meals. Sirloin on stone, prawns kebab and more all to our liking. Service not prompt but then we are in holiday. Kids kept busy in sandpit and play area adjacent. Allowed adults piece and quiet to enjoy fine wine and good company. Last here five years ago and nothing has changed. If you want a great meal out, this comes highly recommended.

“Forget customer focus”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Good food but service is totally indifferent to customers. The steak on the stone required a tray to put the cooked steak but the reply was that "it is like that". We ordered rare, it came well done, and not even an apology. Customer is treated coldly as just a money provider. Never again!
