Short and simple, as above, the food was fantastic and the premises were quaint, charming and comfortable. The staff were also helpful and friendly and the location too was good! Make this part of your stay!

I should have known better really....... The more upmarket restaurants in Tavira tend to disappoint and this was no exception. Still, I fancied sole and sole was on the menu and the decor looked fine so in I went. The sole whilst cooked well was the smallest that I have ever eaten. I thought that they threw these back!

Very busy -we sat outside in the street. Very friendly service- slow as normally expected in Portugal which should not be considered a problem. The meals were excellent and chef came out to personally check on every table and bought everyone a drink.

Ate dinner here on a Monday evening and the external tables were busy and inside got full as well. It seemed there was only one man serving and although he did his very best service was necessarily slow. We had grilled chicken and one of the specials, grilled lamb chops. The food was fine - good portions and a good... More

This restaurant fills up fast because it is one of the better ones in Tavira. It was recommended by our hotel (Tavira House) and the manager wasn't exaggerating. Fresh seafood, good specials and good service.

Our first visit to this restaurant was well received by our guests but my wife and I were not that impressed. On our second visit our first impression was confirmed. We both ordered fish, my wife tuna and codfish for me. We should have asked how our fish was to be cooked as when our meals arrived they both where... More

Went here for dinner on Saturday evening with my wife. The service was quick, polite and easy going. We went for specials, very good value and great portion. The environment was, like any other restaurant around that area really. Would gladly recommend.

Whilst restaurants in Tavira are many, good ones are few. Abstracto I have to say proved to be one of the few both in terms of the quality of the food and the service of the staff. The care taken to advise on the fresh market produce and how it would be prepared and served was excellent. The attention to... More

We had late lunch at Abstracto, a nice, friendly and competent guy served us. We were sitting outside in the narrow pedestrian street, alone on the side of Abstracto restaurant, in opposite of a well crowded Indian restaurant. It felt a bit odd in the beginning, but we wanted local food. And we were not disappointed! We started with grilled... More

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
