I drive clear across the city to have my fix of Portuguese food from Bairrada. The place has an ambiance about it from when you enter the door. The inside is nice and the tree covered outside patio with pig pit is a treat for the eyes. As well as the aromatic smell of the pig roasting in the pit... More

When you arrive to this restaurant, you see a rather old restaurant with a major need of upgrading. However, we thought the food will be good based on the ratings on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately the food was just as awful as the surroundings. The chicken which must have been on a hunger strike (more the size of a pigeon than... More

We recently took one of our colleagues out for a farewell lunch for his retirement. Food was excellent, prepared in a timely manner considering there were over 11 of us. The seafood is awesome, steaks prepared to perfection. The Calamari, goat cheese and sausage appetizer is the best! The most popular dish was the BBQ'd chicken. Amazing, piping hot and... More

Goat is awesome as was the pre-ordered suckling pig ribs. Fish was a tad dry. We didnt have chicken since we eat a lot... More

The price certainly is right. Portions are large. The service efficient. Looks like a popular neighbourhood resto, though I wouldn't want to go again. We had salads, calamari, house steak, prime rib steak, clams, and fish. Caesar salad is heavy with supermarket dressing, powder parmesan, and processed bacons bits. First bite of meats was tasty. After that, you just taste... More

We had a late lunch at 4pm, with only a couple of other tables occupied, so it was probably a lot more peaceful than normal. This unpretentious restaurant offers good Portuguese food at very reasonable prices. The soup and sardine appetizers were enjoyed. Six large sardines for $12 can easily be shared. The veal entree consisted of two large chops,... More

I have eaten here for over 15 years and will keep coming back whenever I am in the neighborhood. The wife and I both enjoy the food and the backyard area and will continue to return for years to come.

One of the worst foods I have had in the City in 10 years. The service is really bad, snotty waiter and owner. Very very noisy restaurant.

We ordered a bunch of food to be catered for a baby shower. The food was hot, fresh, ready on time, and extremely tasty. Everyone at the party commented on it, and really enjoyed it. Thanks! We would highly recommend this place to others...

Being in their backyard is fantastic and worth going (nevermind the great food!)! It's huge and casual with picnic tables as seating and lots of great with trees as the canopy. They had out heaters at night to warm things up a bit. Loved the atmosphere. The food was really good too!
