Good idea to book ahead as many were turned away when we ate here. Our meals were delicious and there was a different menu which makes a change. The starters we had were bacon and dates and apple and goats cheese with apple and local jam both of which were yummy and the portions were not small. They were happy... More

Got very lucky finding this place. We walked in and got the last table available that night, and it sounded like they were booked up the rest of the weekend as well. House red wine was lovely. Both my husband and I got the steak with mushroom sauce, and both LOVED it. It did take quite a while to get... More

Managed to get a table for two in this small restaurant (18 seats) without booking and was not disappointed. The décor and the smell of the place is really nice for a start - quirky and colour coordinated. Throughout the welcome and service was excellent. It seems to be run by a couple where he is the chef and she... More

Having walked past this restaurant I called in to try and book a table. The chef who was lighting the latens outside told us to come back later. We returned 30 minutes later to be told by the chef that because of us (table of 4) he had to turn down a table of 7! Hardly our fault, this restaurant... More

Sorry my mood but as mentioned the restaurant is very small , and works with reservations , and it was suggested an hour and arrived 30 minutes later, all that interferes with good service , this is because there are people before and after. But I thank the comment. I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND .... THANKS More

A good thing about visiting Tavira slightly out of season is the ability to turn up at one of the best restaurants in town at 8 o'clock on a Saturday evening and be given a table immediately! Wee were so lucky because, as has been said many times before, this is a cosy little cracker. Cosy surroundings with friendly yet... More

Not typical Portuguese fayre - meat with very nice sauces. Presentation excellent - more like fine dining. Restaurant visually pleasing - quirky décor Tip: Small establishment - Need to book. Closed Tuesdays

Nice place to say it small is slightly an understatement - but hey it didnt detract from the really nice food, bit slow but would recommend stone dishes and bacon with figs. House red wine cheap as chips and the dogs danglers on quality and taste ! Nice addition to this lovely town - keep it up

I have eaten here 3 times and always enjoyed the food. The menu is simple, but after miles of fish and calaplana menus, this is a nice change. Best for couples or up to 4 people, but really helpful staff and good quality food.

A very intimate restaurant (only 6 tables), but the food was excellent. There were 7 of us, so we filled half the restaurant, we didn't have a booking so were lucky they could accommodate us, although we did have to sit on separate tables. Most of us decided on the mixed meat on a hot stone, and were not disappointed.... More

What a hidden gem this place is! We ate here 3 years ago on a day out to Tavira from Fuzeta and had the meat fondue! Our most recent visit in August confirmed that this is one of the best places we have ever eaten! A glass of house white and red ordered, we tucked into the awesome starters! Smoked... More
