Lovely Fish Restaurant Near the Castle in Silves

Traditional fish restaurant in the centre of Silves close to the castle. The fish menu was very extensive with the option of live shellfish which came straight out of their tanks. There is meat options but they are limited compared to the fish menu. I had tuna which was cooked beautifully with a... read more

From the outside it looks a bit touristy, interior decor is basic but clean. The staff are very good and the food is even better. I'm always wary of menus which offer a very wide range of food but was very impressed by the presentation and flavours in the seafood and meat cataplana. Our friends shared a seafood feast which...

Silves was bustling as festival season was in full swing so the streets were busy and there was a great atmosphere with the smell of roast garlic in the air, luckily we booked ahead. The outside of restaurant does not look amazing and plasic covered menu is full of pictures of the food which always fills me with dread but... More

Called here one lunchtime, plenty of choice of fresh fish on the menu. A good sign was that it was frequented by the locals. They were very busy but the service was prompt and attentive. We chose the cataplana, well cooked, tasty and, be warned, very filling! We did intend to go back but time was against us.

Stumbles across the axe exploring the town. The food was Incredible. So was the wine. Ended up here 3 days in a row because the food was so good.

Food looked good, but my Tuna seemed a bit over cooked, and my wife was disappointed not to get tomato on her side salad, despite the photos showing a slice of tomato. Nothing special, but reasonable prices.

We started here with an icy cold small beer each. Then we shared covers and a 1kg crab. Everyone enjoyed the crab. Then John ordered a giant kebab of squid and peppers which he really enjoyed. Moyra was disappointed with her mixed salad as it was a bit ordinary. My pork with mushroom cream sauce and buttery rice was delicious.... More

On a quick wander round Silves, decided on Casa Velha, close to the castle. Not the "prettiest" of restaurants but clean, tidy and a very friendly staff. Just wanted a quick lunch. "She who must be obeyed", opted for the fish fillet, had a VERY light batter, good portion of fries, rice(!) and salad. I chose Bitoque de Porc (... More

Four of us went in the evening and ate from the 7.50 Euro menu. We had bread and olives followed by fish or veg soup then I had the pork escalopes which was served with rice and chips and which I loved. My partner had the mackerel which he really enjoyed and the other two had piri piri chicken which... More

We always go to this under estimated restaurant whenever in Silves. excellent 7.50 euro set meal. Quirky humour, very good food. We have not strayed from the set menu (as we go at lunchtime) but am told the main menu is is excellent.
