Situated in a quiet street near the banks of Tavira, in the small terrace is one of its greatest charms, but also has a large interior room.

We booked our table for Valentine's night in advance (via facebook as only arriving from UK that morning) and we were really glad we did! While quiet when we arrived, all the tables were soon filled, with people being turned away (all nationalities including Portuguese) I had swordfish and my... read more

After living here for 8 years we are returning to the UK and will sadly miss this restaurant, Luis, Octavio, Jorge Emine and Patricia have been good friends over the years. My son organised a surprise party for us with 26 people and as well as our table the restaurant was full and the food and service was superb. We... More

The lovely Luis and Octavia have moved to bigger premises but their quality and attention remain the same. I have for years now said that this is the best salmon steak I have had and it remains as good as ever. I can't wait to go in the summer and try out their new upstairs balcony overlooking the river.

We have visited Luis for 10 yrs and the food and service are always great. The new location will only enhance their number 1 status

My partner had a Cataplana of seafood with pork and it was very,very good, I had fresh, grilled Golden Sea Bream mmmmmmmm. One problem though this restaurant is in an alley and most people are packed in I wish they should ban is smoking especially by some of the ignorant English tourists.

Went last night with some of my many friends. The new premises are a delight. How lovely to sit in a restaurant in Tavira without fluorescent lighting overhead. The food is well up to standard.the sautéed mushrooms starter is exquisite. The service is unobtrusive and impeccable. I am sure the larger premises wil overcome the earlier difficulties in getting a... More

A group of us have been visiting the restaurant annually during a golf trip for many years, previously at the old premises and now here, and it has never been anything other than excellent. Really friendly staff, great atmosphere, reasonable prices and fabulous food. For an informal evening out with friends it's hard to beat. I'm not going to recommend... More

Brisa do Rio was a very nice meal for us. The food was great, the wine suggested by the waiter was also a very fine choice, and we felt like the price was perfect for the quality of everything. Very recommended.

We stopped by this restaurant at its new location and it was realitively quiet at 7:30 in the evening; however an hour later it was rather busy. We noticed that there were several locals but also many tourists. Not sure if if the reviews were higher by others, or that the dinners we chose were not the best items on... More
