My wife and I have been staying at Ferragudo over many Winters. The small town is a delight and there are many places to eat and over the years we have tried most of them. Portarade is consistently our favourite, either outside in the square on sunny lunchtimes or inside the cosy atmosphere on Winter evenings. We have always enjoyed... More

There were four of us and we chose the 11.50 menu - couvert (olives,garlic carrots,bread and butter) choice of starters, choice of mains, choice of desserts, choice of drinks and a coffee. As one of our party had soup as a starter we... More

There is no doubt with certain reviews you can "read between the lines".......enough said and we move on.........disappointing but sometimes very predictable. At least Manchester seems to be liked. More

Didn't really want to go to this restaurant as its a bit to touristy but after a few descant recommendations decided to give it a try for lunch . The first thing that strikes you are the boards offering the deals of the day . Starting at €8.50 you look to get a main course and a drink , at... More

As a courtesy to people we try to respond to reviews, good, bad or inaccurate. Having offered our simple 3 tier lunch menu for several months this is one of only a handful of complaints about the supposed "complexity" of what we have to offer. Our menu (in very large type face) clearly states what comprises the 8.50, 10.00 and... More

Time and again, Portorade is consistently excellent. The food is supremely fresh, any fresher & the fish would jump on your plate from the local fishermen having just caught it! A great selection of food and the lunchtime specials are superb value. Still don't know how they can make a profit and serve the quality of food in such lovely... More

Hello to Sheffield, Your comments are positive and in the main representative of most TripAdvisor reviews about our restaurant......we're not perfect, we know, so we try to take positives from everyone who writes. We obviously need to improve our "unimaginative" menu (see MONKEY).......train our "most unhelpful staff" (see MONKEY).....and the "manager" needs to set a better example (see MONKEY) Maybe... More

Many visits to Ferragudo over the years, has meant many visits to the Portarade restaurant situated right on the main square. It must be a great challenge to the management to keep competitive, whilst striving to keep up the quality of food and service in the face of the competition, but owner/manager Andrew and his staff, manage just fine!
