Wrong food arrived and then it was followed with a rude waitress storming across to us with finger pointed "you ordered this etc", we were shocked! So much for customer service! Stick to having a drink only and play safe!

In summary - appalling service, very average food and not cheap. Give this place a miss and try some of the other much better places over the roman bridge in the old part of town.

We visit Tavira a lot; and we've had coffee and a cake at the Tavira Romana several times. This time, we were brought two "complimentary" slices of cake that we hadn't asked for. They were dry, and stale. We thought it was a not paticularly bright way of getting rid of old stock that would otherwise be thrown away! So,... More

We went here for breakfast/mid-morning snack. The waitress gave us a couple of minutes to scan the menu and then came back asking for our choice. We hadn't made up our minds but she rather impatiently demanded what we wanted to drink. She brought our coffees and food (including cake that we didn't ask for, which was charged to our... More

The food quality was average with nothing in particular to say. The quality of the service was just terrible. Nothing you could see in a proper restaurant. We had to ask twice for the check which did not come and it took us almost 20 minutes to pay... The 2 waitress we talked to were just unpleasant.

Decent coffee and cakes but the staff are particularly awful. They only care about themselves and have no idea of time management. A lot to learn.

Called in for coffee and after a wait went inside to ask for service and were faced by an abrupt response to a simple question asking for service. Same happened when went to pay, totally ignored by waitress intent on filling in a post-it. Needless to say no gratuity given. Coffee and pastel de Natas were good.
