We visit Tavira a lot and we always eat here. Delicious food and fantastic waiting staff. If you want a table outside in high season it's best to book ahead.

Go. These people know what it takes to offer a consistently high quality product. But you gotta book in advance. Great buzz. Go.

I had the best "AMEIJOAS a BULHAO PATO" AND lULAS which were delicious and plentiful.The service although slow due the amount of people they had to look after,were eager and polite,excusing themselves for the delay.I fully recommend this Restaurant for the lovers of fresh fish and shellfish,when you are in Tavira.

This restaurant was highly recommended to us and did not disappoint. Seeing the restaurant in the daytime is not very inspiring as it has a little doorway situated down an alley.
