Right on the beach, this is a very good, and busy restaurant. The service was a little slow, but the place was packed, and gave us more time to enjoy our surroundings.

Amazing restaurant , the staff is really friendly and professional, great food and superb location. It is the 3rd time that i visit this restaurant. Definitely not to be missed, especially off season. (It can be hard to park and get a table in high summer) One of my favorite restaurants, a little piece of paradise!

We walked from the boardwalk in Cabanas Tavira along the river Formosa to the elegant Restaurant Fabrica do Costa -- a lovely hike with very few obstacles (some small rivulets that could be crossed by stepping on a few rocks) two and a half hours. We arrived early and muddy at the restaurant which is situated close to the river... More

Great setting. Friendly waiter. Dish of wild cow was given 7/10. Bit salty but otherwise bit bland. My cod was OK but a bit chewy. Nice potatoes. 5/10. My wife and a friend shared a dish of fish cataplana with lots of different fish and shellfish plus sweet potato (which really made it) and veg. 8.5/10. Almond tart was very... More

I have 1st January lunch there together with my girlfriend. Quite packed with many people waiting. Meal was good although not impressive. The location is beautiful and gives the restaurant a great plus. All in all a good place for going once and enjoy the location but not sure to come back.

When you drive down to this little haven, park and wander into the restaurant sit yourself overlooking the estuary and sandbars and just relax! The waiters are attentive and helpful without any " hurry up" and order your food. They will guide you through the menu and if you want , show you the day's fresh fish. The menu is... More

This is one of those restaurants you want to go back to not so much for the food as for the view it offers. It is stunning. The restaurant is situated on the edge of the beach and you can study boat life and beach life while eating. With the usual Portuguese pre-starters (olive and bread as a minimum) they... More

If you love a romantic view of boats floating on the ocean, then Restaurante Mariqueira Fabrica do Costa is the place to be. As for the fish, the food is excellent if you go for the traditional Portuguese kitchen, which means that they will grill the whole fish in a perfect way but also nothing more than that. Apart from... More

Excellent dinner and more lunches. Especially the fish dishes. Recommend for all norwegians to taste the portuguese food style in a friendly athmosphere and tasty local wines. We'll be back for sure!
