We enjoyed a lovely dinner, excellently prepared and beautifully served. It was a wonderful evening.
Spent an excellent night at Tavira recently for a birthday dinner. Our group was a full-spirited 12 and the staff at Tavira didn't miss a beat with a group that size. We had to change our reservation more than once with additional people joining us and each time was handled with ease. We had a wide range of experience with... More
I really enjoyed this restaurant. It reminded me of an old Italian restaurant that is hard to find but worth the effort. The decor is charming and warn. The tables are sufficiently spaced yet its cozy. The entrance from the underground parking lot elevator helped make it feel very secret. We were a party of 5 and had a nice... More

I had one of the fish "specials of the day," the other 3 guests in my party had codfish, the traditional fare of Portugal. We all greatly enjoyed our food. The service was great as well, and the prices were very much... More

Very good. Relatively quaint. In the basement if an office complex. Food was good. Service good. Lots of (maybe too much) cod on the menu?
May 2013 This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is predictably good, the service is excellent - we have always been pleased with the service staff (especially a new waiter, Albero, who was trained by the manager and promoted to waiter from busboy), and it is a good price performer. It impressed me that the manager is tuned... More
We were looking for a quiet restaurant for a family dinner with a hearing impaired family member and saw recommendations for Tavira. Yes, it is relatively quiet for dinner, especially at an early hour. But it was disappointing in other ways. It's in the basement of an office building, and despite the Portuguese paintings on the wall, it does have... More
