Only had drinks so can't comment on the food. Service OK - quite a few locals as well as tourists which tells you something.

Visited for dinner with my family. The waiter we had was excellent, and spoke very good English. The food was also very good, however the location wasn't great. We sat inside and it was very noisy. Would be good for a meal if you're in a big group

We have been to the Casa Velha quite often in the last ten years, and have always found it good value for money. This time we enjoyed the food but we had to wait a very long time for it, and the service was lackadaisical - a pity really.

We were recommended this restaurant and ate here the last night of our holiday. What a let down. The service was non existent - the waiters were far more interested in the larger group of people behind us. We had to wait ages for food that was frankly not that good - fish soup, soup of the day, calarmari, lasagne... More

We stopped here for a drink. We sat down only after i asked the waiter if they served cider (sidra). He conifrmed. We sat down, ordered, only to be told by another waiter, they have no cider. Instead I ordered a glass of Vinho Verde. The wine arrived lukewarm and with no sparkle (quite unusual for a vinho verde) and... More

Doing the tourist thing in Silves (good). Dropped in for lunch; we all had plates of the day. Excellent salt cod dish and oven bake halibut. Delightful, prompt friendly service.

Visited this place thanks to TripAdvisor. Must admit that if the reviews weren't there we would probably walked further towards an other restaurant. The staff is very focused on tourists an sometimes a bit annoying, but if you look past that, the dinner was just wonderful. We all had dishes with fish and even our children completed their complete course.... More

Went as a family for lunch and had a fantastic meal. The monkfish and seafood stew was lovely, the fillet steak and shrimp was tender and came with a lovely selection of veg. Two of the children were able to easily share one fish fingers and chips and the ravioli was fresh and tasty. Very reasonably priced
