We ate here as a group of 7 adults and 2 young children. Our waiter was very helpful, patient, knowledgeable (we asked a lot of questions about the dishes as some where quite unique) and attentive - keeping out drinks topped-up. He took time to speak to the children and care for their needs. The food was fresh, delicious and... More

Saw this restaurant with my bf as one of the restaurants with the best cataplana in portugal and decided to give it a try. We were certainly not dissapointed! Not the cheapest but made with delicious fresh produce. Waiters are very kind and very multilingual! The view is quite nice on the balcony too.

We went to Tavira last year in 2014 and noticed this restaurant. It is in an excellent location, up high, near the camera obscura, but looked quite touristy. We arrived this year around 9:30pm without a booking and despite the outdoor area being full, the manager arranged for one of the indoor tables to be taken outside so we could... More

Not sure why this restaurant is languishing so far down the TA list. Setting is great, service was both informative and attentive and the food was cooked perfectly. More pricey than some other restaurants but worth it.Probably the best meal of our stay so far but we have still to try Aquasul and O Castelo before the flight home.

First night in Tavira and first restaurant after a good walk under a scorching sun. Do not go for the fish pate, it is delicious but not the traditional pate. Octopus was great! My wife had the seabass and she loved it. Great Mojitoes and a friendly service. The mint in mojito is from their terrace. Quality not quantity but... More

Our table had a view over the town out to the sea beyond. Decided to order the monkfish and was lucky to get the last portion. Plenty meaty chunks with potatoes and a broth. Wine waiter made his presence felt early on, however he drifted off to speak with locals and never returned, leaving us to deal with the drinks.

It's in the perfect location - and shady -- at the top of the highest hill, right by the Tavira Castelo and several churches. Some of the seats have gorgeous views of the city and the sea beyond. So it seemed a perfect place for a light lunch before continuing on to see more historical sites. Wanting something light for... More

Great service, view and food. Next to the castle walls and great terrace for a warm night. Some evenings even with live fado music. We visited twice during our stay in tavira, they prepared totally vegan dishes for my girlfriend without any problems and she loved it. If you love wine they also have a good selection.
