We booked a table for 5 friends on a saturday lunch. we were greeted with sympathy, good sense of humour and a glass of local sparkling wine. We tried different dishes, including the vegetarian and not only was the presentation beautiful the food was superb! The mix of tradicional Portuguese food with the creative mind of the chefs works amazingly,... More

Visited this restaurant on a very quiet Sunday evening. The waiter was very friendly and helpful, given my limited Portuguese. In addition to two free starters, I was also given a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. Excellent vegetarian risotto as well. I'd definitely go there again.

Nice one, very good service in top, food was good and cooking was rather modern even with salted cod. I would go there again.

My husband and I were on a short break to Aveiro and visited O Bairro for dinner in the evening. We did not have a reservation and were made very welcome by the front of house staff who spoke good English and explained the menu very well. The food was excellent. We ate three courses accompanied by a wonderful bottle... More

We were the first people to arrive so quite empty at the start, but was full by the end of the evening. Service was great from the start, the waitress came and explained the whole menu in English, and the host was incredibly friendly and welcoming. We received many on the house treats- a great touch. I ordered the duck... More

We went to O Bairro to celebrate new years' day 2017, with no reservation. As we went early, we got a table. This is not a vegetarian restaurant but they do offer one vegetarian option. The service is very attentive. When they knew we'd be having the vegetarian dish, a complimentary vegetarian hors d'ouvre was produced. The meal itself was... More

We went to this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews. The manager said they had been closed & recently reopened. The menu was quite different from before! We were disappointed with the menu options.....just typical Portugal entrees now vs the Portuguese fusion dishes that are shown on this site! The prices were expensive for the food quality.... very disappointed overall.

Awesome place to have a romantic meal. All the dishes we tried were delicious (appetizers, vegetarian lasagna and risotto) and as well as the desserts (chololate). Be ready to spend at least 50€ per couple.

A small restaurant but very good. The menu is interesting and has very creative dishes. Highlight the foam cataplana that is unique! The answering service and cuisine are exceptional. Worth a visit, no doubt.

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...
