We were staying at the Pousada and so were very pleased to have such a good experience at the nearest restaurant. We enjoyed the view from the 2 large windows overlooking the town. The staff couldn't have been more attentive. Rose had an interesting salad for starters and a very enjoyable pork dish with sweet potatoes for the main. I... More

During our stay in Faro,we decided to visit Tavira for the day. After our train journey my boyfriend wanted a drink. My boyfriend had a small glass of Estrella and I had a cappuccino. The cappuccino was the best I experienced during my visit to the Algarve. The cappuccino was served with whipped cream instead of frothy milk. I was... More

After renewing our wedding vows my husband and I wanted a special meal that we would always remember. We got exactly what we wished for at this wonderful restaurant. From the time of booking, the staff could not have been more helpful. It was only the two of us for the meal, and we were treated like superstars! We left... More

This place is just under the Castle walls and after climbing up the hill and all over the Castle we were ready for a break. Had a light lunch from the snack menu and very nice it was - tuna salad and a huge sandwich. Not the cheapest but excellent quality and it was lovely to sit in the courtyard... More

Tonight we have had dinner. A piece of hard plastc was in our salad. The waiter excused himself and promised to tell this to the chef. We had to pay the full amount of our bill without any offer for this terrible incident. By incident we met the chef who was not informed by the waiter and by a lack... More

A very pleasant restaurant with great views over Tavira. Situated just behind the white church in a quiet part of Tavira this restaurant offers a good selection of quality dishes served on a beautiful balcony (weather permitting) by friendly staff who clearly want you to enjoy the experience. Food quality is excellent and well presented.

I have been to this restaurant several times and my most recent one, the food remains great, although it appeared even when we were starting the couvert which feels a bit rushed. But the prawns and the octopus were great, the service was spot on and if you sit in the balcony you have a wonderfull view of Tavira (try... More

Such a shame about our visit here! this restaurant was recommended to us by an employee at the hotel we were staying out so we blindly took their advice. Such a shame! We went for lunch and the place was atmosphere-less! There were other diners but it lacked any ambience. The food was a total disappointment - my husband had... More
