Visited Travira for the day and took the small tourist train around the city, which was just as well as we would never have found this area of eating places. We were hassled by the people outside the new Indian restaurant but found this lovely little street and picked here for lunch. Food delicious, well presented and the service really... More

It was by far the best meal we´ve had in our vacations in Algarve! The quality of the food was outstanding (namely the sea food), the sangria was 5 stars and... More

Tavira is a great city with many nice restaurants but with a lot of Indian Food places where your live is not safe if passing by : they take you from the streets and its NOT easy to escape for these agressive "Indian-sales-food" cowboys . But their is was : Abstracto ! A restaurant with a international Cuisine. The Owner... More

We ate here last Sunday and I have to say the food and atmosphere was great. I had the scallops with ginger and mango which I was really surprised at, as not a big ginger fan - the flavour was light and refreshing, would highly recommend it, The other starter was the lobster bisque with mussels, that was very nice...

Service was quite slow, one bloke running around like a headless chicken, other diners appeared to be waiting a while before any food appeared. Thought some of the specials looked good, but after ordering, we were told that neither of our choices were available. Just update the board guys, so easy.
