This nice little restaurant is on a small back street just behind Ferragudo’s small Main Square. There is some seating outside in the narrow street and ample seating inside, the interior is very Portuguese and has a nice open Kitchen with various Pans and vegetables hanging up.
I had a nice Chicken Piri Piri My mum had a wonderful Moroccan looking Lamb stew. The food was lovely and it had a great atmosphere,
On Monday and Wednesday nights they have Fado, we went on a Wednesday night during our latest visit to the Algarve and had a really good night, The Fado was a man and a guitar who walked around the inside and the outside singing. He was not the best in the world but neither was he the worst and he did not have a bad voice. i have taken a couple of short videos which i will put on soon.
This time i had 'Mixed Meat on the Grill' it was lovely My Dad had 'Lamb on a Spit' and my Mum had the Lamb Stew again. We had a great night made all the more special by the Fado.
This nice little cafe if just near to ferragudo's church and serves drinks, snacks and cakes at really reasonable prices, mainly frequented by locals it's a great place to sit and watch village life the way it has always been with no great bustling throngs of tourists.

Easy to miss O Barrill - it's up a tiny alleyway behind the bigger Portorade restaurant, but it's a real find. We sat outside in the alleyway eating well cooked Portugese food listening to a live Fado singer (I think he is there Mondays and Wednesdays). The service is very attentive and pleasant. You get some liqueurs and figs and nuts on the house while paying your bill. All in all a very pleasant dining experience. Just a tip - try not to sit too close to the barbecue, as it does get a bit warm!
Favorite Dish: All our food was excellent. I think we had some sort of cataplana.
