From outside Bailote appears like many other of the local restaurants but step inside, take a seat and appreciate the very swish surroundings. Nelson was an attentive and friendly waiter but all the staff were pleasant and welcoming. We kept it simple for starter, bruschetta for me and garlic bread for Mrs D. These were well cooked and did not... More

They say that you should never go back and in this case it was true. We visited this restaurant when we were last in Portugal about five years ago and it was memorable. We were so looking forward to going back and we had fond memories of the delicious home made bread and lovely fish pate that we so enjoyed... More
