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

A short uphill walk from the main stretch, A Ver is located next to the castle. The menu is nice and we had good food and wine. The tuna steak was overcooked and we waited 5 minutes before the waiter was free to let him know. Another one was cooked which was perfect. Interior is dated and charmless but we... More

Having high expectations from reading previous reviews we were somewhat disappointed by our evening at A Ver Tavira. It is true that the view from the terrace is spectacular, but the restaurant itself is rather lacking in character. This may sound picky, but the bread plate was chipped and the sliced bread obviously not fresh, which may not be important... More

Having lunch here was a memorable experience. We ate indoors to avoid the heat. Both the food and the service were excellent. I cannot recommend it highly enough. I only wish we had discovered it before the last day of our holiday!
