Ottimo!

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!!

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

Just got in from eating here tonight. I had mixed meat on the skewer, the missus had the cuttlefish, & my 12 year old daughter had the salmon. Massive portions, & amazing tasting food. Excellent. Friendly staff, very attentive - but not pushy,& with starters and a few drinks it came in t just over 50 euros, which for what... More

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.

Very capable and friendly front of house with good service and nice food. Would have problems finding fault with the typically Portuguese food and well worth a visit

We had a fish cataplana (no pre-order necessary) and it was truly delicious. The waiters were wonderful. The place is nicely done, we were sitting outside in the narrow street which was very peaceful.

On a dull Sunday in March (Easter Sunday) our family group of 7 checked out several restaurants and in the end we opted for one down a pedestrianised street on the other side of the river. It was called ‘Rest Abstracto’. We could not sit inside as the small restaurant could not accommodate our group, so we sat outside. The... More

We had a very nice meal here - the best in Tavira. I had sardines that were fresh - the skin crunchy and salty and the flesh tender. Lots of salad, freshly cooked potatoes (unlike the ones in my other review in Tavira), attentive service. I would absolutely recommend it. Its not fussy, but they are kind and the food... More
