Ate here a couple of nights ago. The waiter re-arranged some tables to get us in. All staff were friendly and helpful. Our meal was reasonably priced and tasted good. My Piri Piri chicken was nice and spicy but unfortunately my chips were a bit cold and old! My wife had a paella, which was scorching hot and, judging by... More

Just returned from a two week family holiday in Ferragudo. We tried other restaurants in the square, which were good, but Portarade with their friendly, efficient staff were definitely the best by far. We took friends there, who live in Faro, and they too were impressed and I know they will be returning in the not too distant future. The... More

Good food, reasonable cost, great staff and Andrew the owner a real decent bloke, always enjoyable. Prepare to wait if you wish a table for mid evening.

Have just returned from a two week family holiday in Ferragudo where we spent most evenings in Portarade, working our way through the great choices on the menu. We pretty much tried all the dishes, even the 'frozen paella' and can honestly say they were all delicious. We particularly liked the Steak Portuguese style and our 6 year old grandaughter... More

Mediocre. 2 meals OK, 2 poor. Long waiting time for food, didn't ask how steak should be cooked, boiled potatoes without seasoning or garnish, vegetables unseasoned. Would not recommend however owner asked whether we enjoyed our meal and accepted all criticism graciously and promised to speak to the chef.

Had a beautiful lunch in Portarade. The fish with potatoes and tomato in creamy sauce was to die for (would love to have the recipe for this!). Great value lunch for a family of two adults and three children. The owner was good enough to call a taxi for us back to Carvoeiro as there is no taxi rank in... More

This place has a fantastic set menu lunch for 9.5 euros which includes couvert, starters, main, pudding, coffee and a drink with your meal. The menu is big enough to cater for all tastes and is a great way to fill yourself for little money. It can get very busy at times and if you sit in the middle of... More

The owner told us that we should have being told that the paella's are bought in frozen and not cooked freshly on site.

Hello Some reviews don't come as a surprise, this one was expected. First of all I don't play the blame game.......I have over 25 years business experience, in marketing, and understand a little bit about customer service. Unfortunately at this time of year, as you will find in most restaurants, food takes longer to deliver to the table. 50 minutes... More
