The restaurant is hidden behind a cafe and we were happy we went there. Really nice traditional decor and vibe and great service by father / son team. The fish soup was delicious - generous starter, and the mains equally tasty. We had the prawns curry and grilled squid. Yummy. All washed down with fantastic vino verdhe. And great value... More

Good old Tavola! If in doubt about where to eat out in Foz, you can rely on the Tavola for a good dinner at a reasonable price. The staff are helpful and efficient and there is always a good choice of dishes on the menu. The new bar at the front opens out into the restaurant at the back, so... More

First time we dropped in was for coffee and the service was great and so was the coffee. Next time we dropped in and we were planning to eat lunch so we sat at an outside table and waited...and waited...ok it was lunchtime and they looked busy but we gave up in the end - there just weren't enough staff....

Visited with family, worth booking as can get busy in season/weekends. Had a great meal, we (5 of us) all shared the seafood catplana, tons of good stuff in it, lobster, clams, prawns, mussels - really excellent.

We were here last year and had a great meal. This year we went on a night that the restaurant was very busy. My wife had a steak which as good, while I had grilled octopus, and though the portion was large the octopus was chewy and overdone. Service was slow and the the staff seemed overwhelmed. I will try... More
