Lovely to sit in the square for lunch.

The menu of the day at this restaurant is very good value. My husband has eaten the sardines here twice now as he said that they were the best ever. I have had lovely sea bass. There is also a good choice of puddings as well. Have eaten here twice now and can recommend it for lunch.

Lunch time visit for us and we ate from the set menu. We describe the food as "having filled a hole, without breaking the bank". Service was however, very slow despite only one other table being taken (outside)

Hi to Manchester, Disappointed to read your review........get the impression you didn't enjoy the food....sorry about that. More alarming for us is that you found the service too slow.......despite only one other table. Hopefully if you ever return we can improve our performance. Best wishes Andrew and Helena More

As it was January, many restaurants in this attractive fishing village were closed. My wife and I opted for the Portarade, attracted by the three course menu at 11.50 euros (based on the principle that if the food was not too good, we wouldn't feel to put out). There were plenty of tables set out in the sunny square. As... More

Terrible food. The Robalo (Sea Bass) had no flavour. Its grilled... just add a little salt.. not that hard and the Marisco Rice tated like plain chicken soup.

Loved this place for its cocktail bar and great position in the square, however not great service and the food wasn't up to scratch. There was a misunderstanding when we asked for cheese to be added to the garlic bread and the waiter brought out two dishes instead of one. When we advised we already ordered one it was taken...

Warm welcoming atmosphere, staff very friendly and helpful. My wife has Portuguese style steak and enjoyed it very much. I had chicken kebab, the chicken however was a little dry and overlooked, so quite chewy. Very good deal on some end of stock wines and a complementary liquor to finish. Nearly very good.

Located in the small town square where there is a number of restaurants however The Portarade always seems busiest - and with good reason.
