Took a trip to Ferragudo while in Portugal on holiday and came across this fab restaurant. We were mainly attracted into this place because of the great value lunch deals and also the busy atmosphere. I took the option of trying the mixed fish rice dish (excluding squid), being in a fishing village. My slight alteration to the dish was... More

We've been to portarade several time over the years and always enjoyed it. The location in the square always guarantees a great atmosphere in a summers evening. The food was generally good but a couple of us had the Piri Piri chicken which we found a bit disappointing. I know it's a spicy dish served on the bone, but this... More

Hi Thanks for taking time to review our restaurant. I will address the issue of the Chicken Piri Piri.......not the first time I've heard this one so a quality control issue.......thanks for pointing this out. As for the fire "breathers" this is down to the local police and authorities to act. All we can do is pass on the comments... More

Hi Pleased to read most of your review....the last bit needs some explanation.

This restaurant is set in a good location in the main square in Ferragudo. The menu is extensive and the quality of food is good. It is reasonably priced. Service a bit uneven, but not dreadful. One word of warning. Ferragudo is small and has no taxi rank, so getting a taxi to come from elsewhere can be problematic.

James C, Owner at Restaurante Portarade, responded to this review

Hi Kevin, This time of year service tends to be inconsistent, on occasions, for which I apologise. As for taxis.........again can be very difficult.....this is something the local town hall should try and address as car parking is becoming increasingly difficult as this "small" village becomes more popular. As for our food and value for money we believe we are... More

Both the Beef Bourgignon and the Mermaid's Purse (mixed fish baked in the oven), were excellent, as was the accompanying bottle of house wine. Very good value for money too!!

Andrew and his lovely Wife Helena have created a very pleasant restaurant that spills out onto the square. They've opened a very trendy cocktail bar and a Thai restaurant just yards away too and all are really worth a visit. They choose their staff well too - smiley, welcoming and efficient.

We are regular diners at Portarade. Usually at lunchtime to take advantage of the excellent €11.50 3 course lunch. We both had the Tuna and tomato bake starter, Piri Piri Chicken and Lemon Meringue pie. Will return especially as location and friendly staff enhance the experience.
