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

One of the best meals of the year! Being the fist trip to Tavira I’ve checked the recommended spots to have a family meal, and came across “restaurante Abstracto”. 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...
