Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Previous reviews were encouraging but on arrival it appears to have closed down. Walked up and down the street but another restaurant appears to have opened there.

Thanks again Antonio and Sofia. They were talking very passionately about the food they served. Food was excellent, good suggestions including very fresh seafood. Very hospitable, very helpful and kind to our kids. They also gave us some tips for the remainder of our holiday....I absolutely recommend going there for a relax, slow food & gastronomic evening!More

We were looking for a traditional/local restaurant in Portimao for our first dinner in town, and we are very happy that we found A Travessa! From the starters to the desserts, very good food and proper homemade cook. Extra minutes of wait is more than...worth for the quality of food. Very friendly staff. Totally recommended!More

My husband and I found this gem by accident when we turned down a little street off a main road and were drawn to the energy of the cute little place. We were met by the owner/chef who spoke of his food with passion, so...we were excited to try a few dishes. We got the oxtail, grilled squids and clams, all were great!More

Eleven people went to eat at this restaurant on October 4, the last night of our reunion party, and it was spoiled. From other reviews I understand that it is a good place and that’s why we went there, but it is hopelessly understaffed with...one waiter serving everyone, at least 20 customers at a time that night. We were fed late and after two hours two of our group had not been served, apparently because of a ‘misunderstanding.’ We gave up and left. The food was no more than ‘okay.’More

Visited A Travessa with my husband and the experience was a little underwhelming for such a highly rated restaurant. My octopus came very bland and I had to add lots of salt for flavour... and I’m not a fan of overly salty food. My husband’s...oxtail was good but he claims the portion was too small and the side was fries, which he found odd. My dish is slow cooked so I knew the wait would be long, but the general service between the courses was very slow as there seemed to be only one guy serving. At the end of the meal the manager/owner came over and offered some ginginha. Nice gesture, but I would have been more impressed if he were actually helping the waiter serve for faster service instead of chatting, eating, etc.More
