Description: Facing the local fish market and the canal dos botirões, at the heart of Aveiro's historic center, O Bairro is the place where you'll have one of the best gastronomic experiences of your life. Starting with the "33cl de caldeirada", followed by the fish&seafood rice and finishing with our amazing dessert of "Ovo Mole à Bairro", for sure you'll want to come back on the next day to experience other deli...

In our short stay in Aveiro, we went twice to this restaurant. The 33cl. caldeirada is a must but all the preparations with fresh fish are excellent. The meat dish tasted, "leitão", was also a beautiful and exquisite tasting meal. As for the desserts, the interpretation of ovos moles is simply scrumptious.

This is local food prepared to a very high standard at affordable prices. We had some excellent, fresh seafood here and the waiter was warm and knowledgable in explaining dishes and recommending a local white to go with our meal. The interior design is both simple and stylish. Come here to treat yourself!

I must say that this food experience in Aveiro was spectacular. We were a group of 4 people and everyone finished their meals with a big smile in the face...

The starters we try were 33cl of caldeirada, ovos rotos and shrimp, all amazing! For main dishes were fish and shrimp rice and a beef with home made french fries with mushrooms and bacon... just perfect! We finished with their typical desert - ovo mole a bairro - and cheese cake, both were speechless...

An amazing portuguese red wine (the prices of the wine in Portugal are just perfect) from Douro region for the meat and an Alentejo white wine for the fish, it was perfect.

It was really cheap for what we had and for the quality and service provided, congratulations for the O Bairro Restaurant team.

If we visit Portugal and Aveiro again, we'll come once more...

The restaurant opens at 19h but I suggest making a reservation. We were the first to arrive and most tables were already booked. The decoration is welcoming, making reference to the typical Aveiro old neighbourhoods. The staff is friendly and helpful. We were recommended the fish-of-the-day dish: you can choose from the different kinds of fish the chef gets from the market (right next door) that morning, and its cooked very simply with a vegetable sauté. It was delicious.

Before that, we tried two of the starters: Ovos Rotos (scrambled eggs with ham aspargus) and an amazing pumpkin cream soup with turnip tops and "alheira". For dessert, my girlfriend had a cheese panacotta with marmalade and ice cream. I had the brownie with port wine ice cream. Both were very good. The price for the complete meal was 25 euros a person. Worth it!

Don't miss this restaurant if you visit Aveiro.
