Fabulous meal!

Amazing meal with a great view of Tavira! Food was excellent although service was very dependant on the waiter.

Had lunch here on balcony with superb view over the town all the way to the sea. Food was competently cooked and tasty. We had loin of pork with broccoli, carrots and chips and best of all a deliciously rich gravy. Then a huge slice of moist chocolate cake with strawberries and vanilla ice cream for pudding. Broccoli tasted odd... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times and find the food to be good but not exceptional and fairly priced taking into account the superb location. Inside the restaurant is spacious, clean and light with a terrace overlooking the town and very pleasant views of the city and the sea. . There is parking to the front next... More

A friend recommended this restaurant to us plus it was mentioned in our guide book. So perhaps expectations were unduly raised.... The restaurant is large by Tavira standards and was almost deserted. The interior has a somewhat dated feel. Big plus is a lovely terrace with decent town views. Food was OK though not special in anyway - no dish... More

We were wandering around Tavira Castle and saw what looked like a nice cafe in the grounds.We are normally wary of restaurants in touristy locations but then noticed that A Ver Tavira was on our list of 'good' restaurants. Inside, we found a relatively large restaurant with an outside balcony area overlooking the roofs of Tavira; the river and coastline.... More

We ate out every day during our week long visit to Cabanas de Tavira and this was the worst restaurant we visited, despite it being the most expensive. The restaurant itself is attractive and offers great views over the town, but the food was poor - my cod fillet was so overcooked that it was like chewing on an old... More

Best seating above Tavira, next to the old fortress and church. Very good kitchen and also inside the restaurant a good atmosphere. But... outside dining (or lunching) is the thing to do!

Really lovely setting, next to the castle and attentive staff - but as for the food there were actually 2 vegetarian mains on the menu which is a nice surprise for a 'white tablecloth' type of restaurant. But the risotto wasn't great and lacked any finesse. I was really looking forward to the dessert as it was a chocolate fondant... More
