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

Situated not far from the Cathedral and Castle is an ideal stopping place going to or from these attractions. Beautiful setting. We had pastel de nata and coffee

On a beautiful square you’ll find this cute spot. They have lovely coffee’s and other nice drinks. I would recommend to order one of the delicious cakes or a pastel de nata. The staff is super helpful and kind. Definitely go here!

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

My husband and I popped into Cafe DaRosa for lunch (having checked Trip Advisor for reviews first) The Cafe is beautiful with lovely tiles and furniture, great staff and excellent food. We shared a sandwich and a pastry and we really enjoyed the food. Our...coffees were delicious and perfect. It’s a delightful little cafe and we’ll certainly return on our next visit to Silves. Thank you to all concerned and best of luck as you and every other business struggle to deal with the current Covid19 outbreak.More

While touring the Silves Castle and Silves Cathedral, we stumbled across the delightful Cafe DaRosa. The cafe is located very close to the castle and cathedral as well as little shops. Very welcoming and friendly. Lovely cafe both inside and out. Very quaint. We fell...in love with Silves after visiting this cafe. The coffee was great. The bathrooms were sparkling clean. We made a special point to return to Silves to eat lunch at Cafe DaRosa...unfortunately, it is closed Sundays. Would recommend this to anyone.More

Beautiful square on the way up to Silves Cathedral. Basking in the sunshine we found this delightful cafe. We ordered Coffee and cake. We were asked to go in and select cakes. What a stunning interia. Amazing typical Portuguese tiling inside which was stunning. We...sat in the sunshine and had coffee and custard tarts . Tarts were delicious and square was very memorable. Would love to go back and explore a bit more. Hills were a bit of a problem.More
