Ordered a sea food paella which arrived after 50 minutes with one mussel shell and 2 prawns. The owner told us that we should have being told that the paella's are bought in frozen and not cooked freshly on site. He made no hint of an apology but wanted to know who took our order as he said they should... More

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

We were a party of 6 adults and 5 kids (age 3-5). The straff was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Everybody enjoyed their meals.

Hi Thanks for your review and the time taken to post on TripAdvisor. At least people get a "balanced" view of what we try to do. As you will see from our rating, some people enjoy and some people leave disappointed......that's life. We try to listen to our customers to improve our product offer.......... Best wishes Portarade More

We ate in this restaurant three times during our hoilday and were not disappointed. Really good value lunch for €9.50 including wine and coffee. The staff were pleasant and attentive but never hurried us to leave. Would definately recommend you give this restaurant a visit.

We had an evening meal here recently and have been eating here since 2007. In our opinion the quality of food has gone downhill in order to keep the prices keen. The food was distinctly ordinary and when we had a problem with one of the dinners the hosts didn't appear to be interested. Our waitress was very good and... More

Hello from Portarade It is always disappointing to read a review which reflects a poor experience. Unfortunately for you and your family is is not the first time you have left our restaurant disappointed (Ref: Cheap Frozen....September 2011). Having read your other reviews, Fim do Mundo would appear to be your restaurant of choice....good food and fantastic hosts (we know... More

This Restaurant is very busy for good reason. They are victims of their own success. The €9.50 set lunch is fantastic value for an amazing price. We were 4 handed, all had different and there were no complaints. The staff are friendly and give great service. Despite the heavy demand for tables we were not hurried. Well worth a visit.

If you want to have excellent food, at a reasonable price but in the centre of the action try this restaurant. It is in the main square of Ferragudo, always busy but with the efficient service table bookings are not required. A great menu with something for all. Superb steaks, fish and Italian dishes. Give it a try you will... More

We ate here a couple of times on our trip to Portugal. The service was always friendly and polite and we really enjoyed the food. The location is also lovely - right in the square in Ferragudo overlooking the river. The fillet steak with garlic butter was really good, as was the seafood.

We have just come back from the Algarve and this was the best restaurant we found for the cost. We ate in a different restaurant each night, some spending quite a bit for horrible food. Potarade offered delicious food for good value. Unfortunately we only found this place 2 days prior to the end of our holiday or we would... More
