This restaurant was very close to our hotel and as we had been travelling all day, so decided to give it a go. We both enjoy Portuguese food, but on our visit it tended to be quantity over quality. The starters were very good; I...More

As soon as you walk into the place the smell hits you, its divine. I have beef and prawn skewers and it was stunning. The beef was cooked perfectly and the king prawns were wrapped in bacon for added flavour. The service was good and...More

Went with family for a birthday meal. A real experience and we loved it. Great price too - £14.50 for two courses. Very attentive staff and would definitely go back

Barros is I believe one of the best restaurants in St Helier. The restaurant looks nothing special from the outside, but the cheerful staff, who we remembered from last year and delicious and plentiful food at a reasonable price make this a must visit place....More

I didn't see a Children's menu and we visited 4 times in the evening and didn't see any children in. They were very friendly and helpful so I don't think it would be a problem if it was early evening.
