Running a food business is a little like running the gauntlet. Some people you please, others, no matter what you do, you can't. Life's like that too. Being in 'the square' I'm sure makes it even harder. It's not a destination it's a spur of the moment choice. My family ate here the other night. If I could have hired... More

Portarade was a 'must' for a revisit after we enjoyed our first Sunday lunch in May. Although the price had risen by 2 Euro, at 11.50 Euro it still has to be one of the best value venues in the area. The 4 course meal with a drink and coffee was really tasty - especially the duck pate and seafood... More

Given the trip advisor average was four stars I was very surprised by just how sub standard the food was here. We arrived and were promptly seated so ok to start. The location was pretty good (in the middle of a square with a live band and talent contest). Drinks arrived quickly but the food took an age. I am... More

Thank you for your assessment of our restaurant. At least we enjoy a balanced view of what we do. Yes, on occasions, we don´t deliver to our normal high standards and unfortunately you left disappointed. For that I apologise. No excuses, so I wont try to make any......it´s always disappointing but you are entitled to your opinion. It´s always nice... More

The service was so good, the gentleman who served us Rodrigo was a delight always asking if we were enjoying our meal etc. I had the steak (Portuguese style) and my friend had the fish. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Despite feeling super bloated, we ordered dessert which was also very yummy. I would definitely recommend the food here,... More

We met friends here for dinner and had a wonderful evening. We were a party of 14, a mix of adults and children and this place caters perfectly for all. Well priced and plenty of options for children, they especially loved the rabbit shaped pizza! Adults ate chicken piri piri and chicken kebab and again these were well priced and... More

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
