We had delightful pastries in this sweet cafe with a coffee house atmosphere. The blue and white tile decor and old style furniture make for a nice atmosphere. The service is very attentive and friendly. The coffee could still be better - but it was...the best we had in the Algarve so far!More

Cafe da Rosa was a lovely spot to refresh ourselves after a visit to Silves Castle. The wine was refreshing and the food was superbly prepared and presented, and tasty and abundant. We had an Algarvian Salad with sardines, olives, cheese, nuts and lovely sweet...lettuce, and a Terra Salad with oranges tomatoes, nuts, and cheese. However, the service left much to be desired and the cost was not on the cheap side.More

Very busy. 10 minute wait to place our order, than 15 minute wait for the food...but well worth the wait. The salada alentejana, ordered by my wife, was plentiful and the salada da terra was one of the best salads I've ever had. Very friendly...service among very busy staff.More

What a haven if tranquility this cafe is, situated about halfway up the climb from the river to the castle in Silves. The staff were lively and humorous, and the drinks menu had some nice, rarer options. The sparkling gooseberry juice was delightful, the red...lemonade very refreshing. The latte macchiato was a strong, satisfying coffee too, and we were smart enough to indulge the pastry options too - excellent pasteis de nata all round. Perfect resting post on the Silves slopes.More

We visited this cafe as a family of 6 for breakfast. Everything was stunning, the location, the coffee, the pastries, the yoghurt and mostly the orange juice. Staff were so friendly and helpful. We will definitely return. Thank you

Located in a small square below the castle, this is a cafe worth looking at as well as stopping for food and drink. A good ‘halfway house’ when visiting the castle. Good food,drink and service

Café DaRosa Great location and great place to sit We were disappointed on our last full day in Silves that this café was shut on a Saturday as we really enjoyed our coffee there the day before. (It was closed on Sunday as well when...we walked part it). It is located in a very pretty square with a great view of the huge red sandstone tower guarding the entrance to the old town. It is a good alternative to the places near the castle. The tourist office is next door. The coffee was fine, and we enjoyed the little biscuit that we ordered with it. We though that €3.80 for the coffees and the biscuit were very good value.More

The perfect spot for coffee or lunch. We enjoyed several lazy mornings here, with coffee and pastries, and the sandwiches and salads are fabulous. Highly recommend.

Came here for an afternoon snack, with a small pastry and some drinks. My husband ordered the Algarvian coffee (with liquor) and I ordered a gooseberry drink. Both were very tasty, with that we had an typical cake, also very fresh and delicious. It's on...a nice square with a fountain, and the inside of the cafe is beautiful with Portuguese tiles.More

If you are walking around Silves, with the aim of, ultimately, reaching the castle at the top of the hill then keep an eye open for this café and panaderia called ‘Da Rosa’ just before you reach the summit. It is a relaxing place to...sit a while over a decent coffee and enjoy a snack, or something more substantial. There is both inside seating and outside seating on a terrace under covered arches. The coffee is great and the patisseries are delicious; furthermore, we went back later to enjoy an apetising lunch there as well. There were plenty of choices, which included vegetarian and vegan, too. Good service as well, with no long delays, despite being a busy lunchtime. A place we will revisit next time we go to Silves. Thanks for reading this and if you've found it helpful I'd appreciate a ‘thumbs up’ below.More
