At this time of the year not many restaurants in Tavira can boast with a full house. The menu is well balanced and offers dishes for all tastes. We had chicken and grilled fish as main course and shared two starters. The prones were good cooked in the traditional Portuguese style the cold salad was fresh and crunchy but with... More

Went for lunch with my sister late October. Service was excellent, decided to wait a few mins for a table outside as the weather was lovely. I had tomato soup to start (excellent) and lamb chops, sis had the fish (dourada) served with potatoes all perfectly cooked with broccoli and carrots (not overdone). The waiter said we could have more... More

A lovely unpretentious restaurant situated in a little street just off the main square which serves very good traditional Portuguese food in hearty portions. Our window table had a huge tv screen over it showing a Portuguese roller hockey match which might not be your thing if you were on a hot date, but we enjoyed it for a bit... More

This was recommended to us by several different people. It was my birthday so I decided to go. It's in a wonderful alley with several other restaurants so it has great atmosphere and very lively. When you are seated you are given a little appetizer of cheese, bread and olives. Lamb chops were the special and they were very good.... More

Lots of great places to eat in Tavira. However this place is up at the top end of my list... superb cataplana as well as meat dishes. However for me the service these guys provide is the best in town and better than some five star hotels. They are friendly yet professional with a wide range of knowledge about their... More
