We visited by chance and the quality of the food was second to none. The grilled bacalhau was tasty and succulent accompanied by sliced potatoes. My partner had sea bass which was seasoned to perfection. Rui is the perfect host and makes you feel at home. The restaurant is a little gem in Tavira.. The food is family cooking at... More

We spend a few months of the year in Tavira and know most of the restaurant. A friend suggested this new one. We ordered the mixed fish platter. It was abundant, delicious and fresh all for 10 euros a plate. The cover included fresh tuna salad which was actually fresh and very tasty (and a little different for the usual... More

We had read the few reviews on Trip Advisor before arriving in Tavira and added it to our list, we were not disappointed. Yes it is a little way off the beaten track but only a few minutes walk from busier areas. As previous reviews have mentioned the host was very welcoming, friendly and informative, we enjoyed his company. We... More

We visited this restaurant on our first night in Tavira and went back every night for the rest of our stay. The food is very nice and the owner is the most charming and friendly man we've met in a long time.

We had a lovely family meal hear with the owner being the perfect host. It was a shame that the restaurant was quite -being slightly away from the main part of the town must be the only reason, as it deserves to be busier. It's well worth a visit to sample some finely cooked fresh fish. The starters and mains... More

Although not centrally located it is definitely worth the short walk. We had sea bass and the house special - cod with sliced potatoes, both were excellent. The owner was very friendly and made our visit all the more enjoyable. The restaurant and toilet facilities were spotless. We are going again to have the peppered steak and would recommend you...

You will find Restaurante & Marisqueira Capela on the Rua Almirante Candido dos Reis, no more than 10 minutes walk from the centre of Tavira (it's on the same street as the Bica - a bit further on down on the left). There are a couple of tables on the pavement outside but we decided to eat inside the light,... More

Stumbled whilst looking for the National Park! From starters to deserts there was no disappointments here. €10 for steak or the cod fish with crispy sliced potatoes. Yum Yum. Lovely friendly family run restaurant gave us great service. Spotlessly clean too. If we return to the Algarve we will be going back for more

After reading the past reviews on this restaurant we decided to give this a try and thankfully we were not dissapointed. The tapas were a welcome starter followed by steak covered in a light cheese sauce, wrapped in ham so tender and succulent it melted in your mouth. My main choice was the Sea Bream which was amazing all washed... More
