We shared a goat cheese starter, then my husband had the piri-piri shrimps and I had tuna steak with mushroom/ham sauce. For dessert we shared a pear-pie with ice-cream. To go with the food one local white wine. Everything was delicious, the service was quick, we felt really well taken care of. This whole experience (including a full stomach) cost... More

This was our first visit to Brisa do Rio and we were not disappointed. However the décor was a little tired but the artwork by local artists added to the ambiance. The tables were a little too close together which is not unusual in similar restaurants. The food was well cooked, tasty and well-presented and the service excellent. The only... More

We've just returned from a week in Tavira, our first visit, and ate at Brisa do Rio twice, on my birthday and then on our last evening. The service was faultless, and the food was delicious. It's not pretentious, the food is hearty and nicely cooked, and we felt very welcome there. Would not hesitate to go again on a... More

We have visited Tavira every year since 1999 and were one of Brisa do Rio's first customers. Louish and his staff pride themselves on excellent customer care and freshly cooked local produce. We eat here at least twice every visit, and I have yet to taste a better Chateaubriand than I have at Briso do Rio. In our opinion this... More

We have just returned from Tavira and had a meal one evening in this restaurant. The restaurant atmosphere was fine and the service was absolutely fine. The food however was just poor and disappointing. I had a starter of goats cheese, honey and almonds. This appears to be a local or Portugese speciality. I had already had this dish at... More

My husband and I had the piri piri prawns to share as a entree and they were beautiful. Very fresh, cooked perfectly and the piri piri just the right about of heat. We both then had steak, we are from australia and therefore know good steaks and these where right up there with the taste and tenderness. Cooked perfectly also.... More

We ate here twice during our 5 night golf break in Tavira. Would have eaten here 3 nights but they are closed on Wednesdays! Great food and great service...what more do you want. The menu is simple but with a great choice of excellent food which also included daily specials ( the roast lamb was sensational by the way!) The... More

Packed so you need to book. The service is to die for. As a veggie they were very helpful even remembering what I had ordered 4 nights earlier. Great food. Only Super Bock beer - poorly received. Bottled Sagres. Great desserts. Highly recommended.
