THE BEST RESTAURANT IN TAVIRA!!

We've eaten here 3 times in 3 years and it has become my favourite restaurant in Tavira. The service is excellent. The new rooftop location is a lovely setting. We ate here on our first and last night in Tavira and both times was highly enjoyable. The goats cheese, apple and honey starter is the... read more

We have been fans of this restaurant in its previous location. Nice to see the familiar staff faces, and they were friendly as ever. While the food remains good, and the new roof terrace is very pleasant, the sheer size of the new operation means that service is very slow indeed. Still, no matter, we were on holiday. The night...

This place has a roof terrace which is very popular, so book well in advance, We walked in to find a table available in the lower level and decided to take it. Great menu of local dishes and decided on the swordfish which came with potatoes and veg. Bottle of Planalto was the cheapest we paid for it for our... More

We had white sangria with a clam appetizer that was great. The main courses were good. It was really busy, so the service was slow.

We always visit Brisa do Rio when we are in Tavira, always friendly service with attention to the guests, even if it is busy! The dishes are pure, honest and and accessible to a wide audience ranging between locals and tourists. An absolute must do visit especially on the delightful roof terrace!

This is my favourite Restaurant in Tavira. I visited twice in the last two weeks. The tables on the terrace have a lovely view of the river. Food is delicious and portions generous. The waiters provide a great service. Prices are very competitive. Booking is recommended.

Best combination of good food, service, wine & atmosphere. You need to book! Typical Portuguese fare. There's a great wine cellar to choose from & the owner (I guess) knows his wines.
