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.

Our waiter Tiago showed us this very special restaurant when we were waiting for a table on the outdoor busy square for the restaurant. It was a nice surprise to sit inside a very nice restaurant with great table service. The food was excellent, fresh...and we can’t wait to go back for Fado on a Thursday night. We loved how proud of the fresh,local seafood our server was. We will be back and bring friends!More

Have eaten at O Barril now for many years when on our twice yearly trip to the Algarve. We look forward to renewing our friendship with Ricardo, 'Panda the Chef' and all the staff. The food and atmosphere is always excellent and OBarril is a...very popular place and very busy. Staff are efficient and always with a smile. We would recommend OBarril to everyone looking for traditional local food at very competitive prices. !!More

What can I say. Wow wow wow. This restaurant is absolutely off the scale, the food is absolutely gorgeous. We visited a few times during our stay and each time were even more impressed. The restaurant is so busy, but the service is excellent. The...staff work and work so hard. The manager and owner was always there, getting involved and helping out. He was pleasant and polite and took the time to speak to customers which was great to see. I could tell that the staff were a team and felt valued. Beautiful restaurant, spotless clean, great food and lovely staff!!More

My son tried is first ever after dinner strong spirit fig fire water.....ha ha worth the watch. Highly recommended but do try and book first if you can.More
