Lovely ambience, very good fish and a chocolate fondant to die for!

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.

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

We came out of the Castle the back way into a pretty square, shaded by lime trees and goodness me, before us was a tempting and delightful collection of tables and chairs belonging to a restaurant. I said to my husband "how delightful, I shall just have to sit at one of those tables for refreshments". We sat down, but... More

lovely terrace and nicely decorated restaurant - quite classy. unfortunately the food was ok for some of our party,but not for others. some of us left our food but there was no comment from the staff - and the service is slow. there is no charm from the staff and there weren't many diners - not a good sign. wine...

Mains were rack of lamb-cooked to perfection and sea bass,which came with 2 large prawns,asparagus and strawberries- melt in the mouth food. Deserts were orange cake with ice cream and honeyed nuts, quite delicious and... More
