Description: Barcelos original Steak and Seafood Restaurant in Wasaga Beach. Open all year round, with an 80 seat patio in the summer for your dinning pleasure
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We are all residents of Wasaga Beach and recently chose to go to Barcelos for dinner. Our orders consisted of the chicken dish and the seafood pasta dish.The seafood pasta came luke warm, a very small portion with only 2 shrimps and about 10 pieces of lobster filled pasta .. no vegetables, accompanied with 2 thin slices of dry (no butter or olive oil dip) french stick bread. The chicken dish came with a dollup of lukewarm rice and 4 extremely tiny pieces of potato (was anticipating/hoping for 2-3 roasted medium-sized whole potatoes) and a small piece of unappealing looking chicken with a chunk of cold melted cheese. Just not appetizing. The 5 pieces of asparagus were appetizing and the caesar salad. We also felt we were being rushed to eat as twice the waitress attempted to take plates before we were finished. Then we asked for coffee which came lukewarm and extremely weak. At this point we complained and they took away the coffees and brewed a fresh cup which was much improved. Coffee cups were whisked away with no offer of a second cup. The owners and servers are very friendly.

We went to Barcelos in May during a weekend getaway in Wasaga.
Nelson, the owner, and his wife are wonderful hosts. Nelson takes great pride in the quality of his food especially the cuts of meat.
The dining room is small and intimate. The outside patio is large and lively with pig roasts every other week. We sampled it and it was delicious.
The food was wonderful. We had a special plate for two which included, 2 Filet Mignon, Lobster tail, shrimp, veggies, baked potatos. The plate was huge and in fact we could not eat it all. We took one of the steaks to go.
We each had appetizers and a bottle of wine. There is a fairly extensive wine selection.
It was not cheap but the food was first class and the service extremely efficient. They brought us a complimentary after dinner drink which was a nice touch. It was a lovely dining experience. There are a lot of options on the menu, something for everyone. I highly recommend the restaurant. We will definitely return.

While visiting Wasaga Beach, we found this wonderful little place. Away from the beach crowd it offer a great ambience with fantastic food. The spicy flamed chorizo sausage was excellent, as was the chicken. The service, by Natacha, was first class. After the meal, the owner, Nelson, walk around the tables visiting his guests adding a personal touch to the experience. The meal was a bit pricy, but that is to be expected when away from the Beach's pub fare.

You're not welcome in this restaurant if you want to share a plate for two people. They charge ridiculous $8 "split-plate fee"!!! I'm sorry but $8 for just bringing you a 2nd set of utensils and one extra plate? And when approached about this, the owner tells you that the reason for the fee is because "you take space" (that's on an almost empty patio at 4pm!). Food was delicious but the service is extremely rude.

Smaller inside than I expected from the outside appearences. Food was of Keg quality...we had their lobster tail and steak special. Meat and lobster was cooked to perfection. The veggies left a lot to be desired. One baby potatoe cut into four thumbnail size pieces and a sliver of a roasted red pepper.
We opted not to try deserts expect to pay $10.
The dinner special came to $96...about $10 less than their regular price for same meal.
I would go back ... but not a resturant to take young kids too.
