I was recommended to this restaurant, so I arranged to go with a party of 12 golfers. The food, and atmosphere was fantastic, and as for the helpful friendly service, well what can I say other than the whole first experience was so good, and such good value, we booked in again the day later. Again we had a delicious... More

We had dinner and everything was perfect. Both appetizers, goat cheese in honey, and scallops Brisa do Rio style were really great. Then, grilled shrimps and see bass in Orange appeared to be again very great. The quality of food goes much beyond what you expect from such a place. I can fully recommend this restaurant to people visiting Tavira... More

Spent one night in Tavira and found this restaurant recommended by Tripadviser. We didn't have a reservation so had to sit outside. We had a wonderful evening - good food, good service and lovely atmosphere. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Tavira and will definitely visit again in their new location.

My favourite Tavira restaurant and I have been there often as I am resident. Fantastic food and service. Love the goats cheese on apple with honey and salad starter, chicken in almond sauce is a fantastic main course and hot pear pie dessert. Highly recommended. They are moving in November to larger premises.

Good food, very well cooked, served by pleasant and knowledgeable staff, who know a thing or two about wine! In truth, menu is not much different from other local establishments, but quality is better, and wine list really good. Eat inside if you can - the laneway is narrow, and crowded with tables from this and other restos. O

This resto serves good basic Portuguese food at very reasonable prices. Goats cheese served on a slice of Apple with honey and toasted almonds was delicious, as were the fish stew and the sole on the bone. Servers know their wines, so seek advice! Eating indoors better than outside, where the street - more of a laneway really - is... More

We ate here twice recently during a week's holiday, it's a busy bustling restaurant serving tasty, generous Portuguese food. We enjoyed the couvert, I ate the squid as a starter which was beautifully cooked and seasoned. For my main I enjoyed the steak Portuguese which was cooked to my preference and tasted delicious. For dessert I ate the chocolate mousse... More

Basic Portuguese dishes cooked well and served by helpful, friendly staff. Good prices. Busy, popular restaurant with good 'buzz' about it. Would recommend booking if eating @ peak times NB: Moving to new premises end Oct (200 covers!) - near river / irish bar
