We are just resting back at our campsite after a quite splendid lunch at Casa Velha. I see the mixed reviews above, but our experience was very positive. We ate outside on the pavement under the canopy because we had our dog with us and it was a joy to watch the storks on a nearby rooftop. The... read more

We have eaten here several times. And never been disappointed. The "Special menu" is three courses with a wide selection to chose from, beer/wine coffee and a port. €7.50 really good value. Theres always a warm welcome from the staff and they have a particularly wicked sense of humour. We have eaten from the main menu also, fresh cooked fish,... More

We went out for an inexpensive lunch after receiving a flyer advertising a fixed menu for € 7.5 per person. We had bread (a bit old) and olives (very nice) followed by fish soup (good), then chicken piri piri (good, with chips rice and salad) next came chocolate mousse (good) a nice espresso and glass of port (not so good)...

Stopped for lunch here after visiting the castle. The staff were a little pushy and we were served a couvert that hadn't been ordered (this is bread, butter, a whole cheese, prawns and olives - varies from restaurant to restaurant). All other places we ate in always asked if you wanted it. The prawns smelled very strongly and were clearly... More

We enjoyed our lunch at this is a small restaurant in the centre of Silves. It specialises in seafood, particularly lobsters, crabs and other shellfish. We found the service to be first class and the dishes were well prepared. Prices are generally less than in the coastal towns.

The waiter was patronising and smarmy. We only wanted soup for our lunch and he seemed to have a problem with this. We were charged 10 euros for 12 small frozen prawns, 12 olives , 4 butters and 8 slices of bread as an appetiser ( Portugese call in the couvert). If we were not with friends, hubby and I... More

This little roadside cafe just outside the castle in Silves was the perfect stop for quick drink before visiting castle. Actually it turned out to be a very good restaurant especially if you like sea food and fish. I don't but they made me a great mushroom omelet very tasty and crepes with strawberries for dessert. Delicious. Don't be put... More

We went here on our last night of our holiday.. I'm glad we did as it was fantastic! We ordered the prawn cocktail each to start, it was made to order so took 10 minutes or so to come, when it arrived it was out of this world! Very well presented and the prawns were huge and fresh from the... More
