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.

Thoroughly good evening

First ate here a couple of years ago and it has improved, 6 of us dined here on the roof terrace the other night and all agreed that the food was good, perhaps not quite very good but certainly above average for Tavira and reasonably priced. Sadly we are returning to the UK but our friends who are... read more

Found this place by chance and what a find. We had no reservation but managed to get a table inside, ( terraces looked great!) the staff were running it was that busy, food was hot and tasty, and beer and wine to wash it down. Would recommend.

Thank heaven for tripadvsor to find where this restaurant had moved to. New premises are excellent and standards haven't slipped. Amazing food at incredible prices. You probably have to try here before you believe what people say!

Great little restaurant with a roof top terrace dining area. The food was excellent both in terms of being well cooked, and well presented with a delicious mix of flavours. The price was more than reasonable.. Throw in a fairly extensive wine list and it must rate as one of the best in Tavira. Well worth a visit

This is the 1st time we have visited Brisa do Rio in it's new location, although we've used it many times previously. We thought the menu / food was much better with a much larger selection. Although this was 20th June, a Saturday night in a VERY busy Tavira, we were able to get a table although inside and not... More

Decided to try this restaurant after reading some of the reviews. Did'nt find it until a couple of nights before going home. We sat upstairs on the patio as it was a warm night. Order was taken for drinks etc., but it was about 30 mins before the drinks arrived and some time after before the food arrived. I would... More

With various friends from Canada we spent a whole month in Tavira and we returned to the Brisa do Rio three times and were never disappointed. Te staff were excellent, the food was exceptional both in flavours and presentation(and as far as we were concerned authentic Portuguese). Added to this the meals did not break the bank! Our last night... More
