My family and I have been visiting the Algarve over decades and have constantly received friendly service and welcoming staff. That is until we sat down in this cafe. We waited for 10 minutes without being served and saw some cusomers were going to order inside to order, whilst others were valiantly trying to attract attention of a waitress. We... More

Great location, friendly staff and you can have a nice lunch here. The chicken salad and tropical salad are great.

This was our favourite place during the day but since our last visit it has gone down a lot. Ever since Meena, the best waitress in Tavira left, the service has been real poor. The staff attitude is bad and they have a couldn't care less attitude. They have a prime location and rely on it. The Wi Fi wasn't... More

I visited here with my husband and and son during our recent stay in Tavira and it was the only bad restaurant/food experience we had. Had we read reviews in advance we probably would have given it a miss but it is situated in the main square and is so appealing to look at. The waitress was unfriendly, with a... More

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

Came here for coffee and a pancake Ordered, a horrid dry pancake arrived, along with some cakes we didn't order. The waitress hovered and asked for the money when she put our food down! I noted on other tables they were left with the bill! We paid and she then brought a bill over - the horrid 'free' cakes were... 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
