Good honest home cooked food all at an excellent price. The squid was amazing and the chicken cooked on the BBQ grill was great.

If you want simply prepared and deliciously honest food, with very reasonable prices and don't mind if the somewhat uncommunicative (yet NOT unfriendly) owner is distracted by football (a common malady in Portugal) and The Price is Right while simultaneously feeding his family and friends - well come here!! It's awesome. We wined, dined and laughed our way through a... More

Small very local restaurant offering a wide variety of simple, rustic, local dishes. The prato do dia was pork with white beans and octopus with rice - both of which were pretty good. Total bill including couvert and a half bottle of wine, around €30.

We had chicken and chips which doesn't sound that exciting but it was very good, cooked on a BBQ at the front of the restaurant and it was very good and not expensive. One of the few places in Tavira that I would go back to.

Small and unassuming place with amazingly delicious food. I had the chicken (piri piri frango) and think it might be the tastiest chicken I've ever had. Cooked over a grill of charcoals. Wish I had had the chance to try fish and sardines as well. Very friendly and hard working waiter too. As it's small it got full quickly so... More

Emigrantes is a small family run restaurant . Limited menus but excellent cooking and great value for money. Piri Piri half chicken and chips for 7.5 Euros. All the chicken, fish,meat is freshly cooked on the barbecue which is visible to the customer. We eat here a lot every time we holiday in Tavira. You must try it at least... More

Always have a great meal here, chicken is a must from here, always great service aswell, soft drinks can quickly add to the bill so better off having beer but not a great concern, defiantly recommend!!!
