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

I have never written a bad review until now. We sat down here thinking it was somewhere else and somewhere else is where we should have been...I ordered the fish soup, it came out tepid and sent it back, it came back hot and did taste OK... 3 of our party ordered omelettes and they all came out cold... I... More

This has to get 5 stars. Superb service. Great service from friendly helpful staff. Fish soup and a superb prawn dish as appetizers were followed by medallions of beef in cream sauce with mushrooms, and a casserole of pork, clams and shrimp, both very fresh and excellently cooked. A shared chocolate crepe desert was helped by two extremely strong Irish... More

On the outside we saw a touristy snack menu and my first impression was of a basic tourist cafe. The inside was completely different with tanks of lobster and crab and beautifully laid tables. One member of the party had the lobster and really enjoyed it. We shared a bream, which was perfectly cooked and our children had fish fingers,... More

Had some lovely meals at Casa Velha while staying in Silves, visiting there most nights. The staff there are very nice and friendly, suggesting the fresh fish that had came in. They also remembered that I didn't drink alcohol from when we visited Silves in the previous year so at the end of the night I got a lovely little... More

We visited Silves yesterday and had lunch at this restaurant. Two of us ordered the feijoada special - a bean and shellfish stew - which was bland and made with frozen shellfish. That night we both came down with horrific diarrhoea, which continued for 24 hours. We are certain this dish made us ill and will be reporting the restaurant... More

We came down from castle and ate here as I had seen in guidebook. It was disappointing - we all had daily specials as we thought they would be good. The seafood/bean stew which I was excited about was bland and with frozen seafood - I should have asked more questions maybe. Fish stew was also underwhelming and fish of... More
