Bairrada Churrasqueira

Posted by Staff / Listed on May 4, 2009 / review policy

Bairrada ChurrasqueiraFrom the outside, Bairrada Churrasqueira on College Street looks fairly unassuming, but on the inside everything about it is a cut above. Decorous waitstaff serve attractively presented meals on one of the largest and loveliest backyard patios in the neighbourhood. Kicking back at a picnic table with a cold Sagres and an expertly charred half chicken platter is like taking a trip to sunny Lisbon but skipping the 10-hour flight. Half-chicken platter, $10

Wrong phone number; it's 416 539 8239.

I've had better Portuguese chicken. My potatoes tasted fishy. The waiters gave us a sample of their roast pork though (full pig on a spit!) and it was delicious. Definitely will get that next time. Their back terrace is absolutely amazing. Reasonably priced.

I had the chicken sandwich, and was really pleased. Delicious and tender, served with just-right fries.

Weird that the saute their food in Stella instead of a Portuguese beer like Super Bock.

Super Bock used to be 60p in my local corner shop in London. :)

No better patio than at Bairrada. Makes you feel like you're in your uncles backyard. A memorable place to take people from out-of-town.

Ate here last night. Huge beautiful patio, reasonably priced beer, and cheap chicken platters. I will definitely be returning.

If you are looking for the best grilled sardines, this is the place. Huge platter of large sardines served with boiled potatoes, broccoli. Piri Piri sauce on the potatoes is FAB. Gotta love this with an ice cold Moosehead on tap!

It's a 6.5hr flight to Lisbon, not 10hr. Also flights are a modest $700 direct, round trip.

“We couldn't resist the urge to stand up and walk around a bit. Their waterfall, little bridge and trellis scene were poetic - a little oasis in the city.”
"Our waiter, Jerry, had a charming Portuguese accent and was very enthusiastic about all the dishes. He made a fun presentation for the Chourico a Bombeiro, as they set a few sausages on fire and cut them for us."
“Finally, for dessert we had their Nata do Cei - cream from heaven. It came topped with some cinnamon and looked like rice pudding to the naked eye. The angelic taste was present - smooth, with areas of grainy sense of breadiness, it was light and pleasant to the palate.”
Just a few bites from our full review..
