Great fish meal

Fresh sole and golden bream cooked very well. Good wine accompaniment recommended by the staff and with aperitifs still under 55 Euros. Well worth a visit.

Excellent Portuguese food served here at reasonable prices. The cataplana's and rice dishes for two are sizeable and as tasty as anywhere you will find in the Algarve. Worth a visit if in Tavira. We actually went back three times!! Service from all the waiters was attentive and friendly. Wine also not expensive especially the Portuguese Vino Verde.

Visited this restaurant twice during our holiday. Lovely outside seating. Great attentive service. There is plenty of choice - mainly fish, but some meat dishes available. I had sea bass, which was brought out to me before it was cooked. It was delicious. My daughter said her swordfish was the best meal she had ever eaten. Great value for money.

Visited here with my husband last night. Right from the word go the service was impeccable. Menu recommendations were explained along with wine suggestions. The owners pride themselves in the freshness of the food and the fish was brought to the table for my inspection prior to the order. Nothing was too much trouble or out of their way. The... More

Very good typical portuguese food. The owner and the personnel are very friendly and very nicely suggest the best dishes of the day. Both meat and fish dishes are very good!!

Just back from 5 days in Tavira, Algarve. Tried a few restaurants (of which there are numerous), but "Restaurant Abstracto" by far the best. Anything on the seafood menu is a winner. Staff really helpful and friendly Went back a second time as the food was so good. definite recommendation.
