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!

This is a lovely restaurant to go to for a special treat. Really good quality food and excellent, attentive service. We ate dinner on the outside balcony while the sun went down over Tavira. Our bill for 4 including tip was 150 EUR, which as a we had a bottle of wine and a couple of drinks, we thought was... More

In July on a Monday the place was empty. I was served a great meal. The chef came to the table and was complimented by us and another table of British tourists. Ate a magnificent corvina do Atlantico with arroz sarraceno. The entrees were excellent and dessert of black Sao Tome chocolate a riot. Truly amazing. The wine list has... More

A little more expensive than the other restaurants in Tavira but worth it for the setting and views. The food was a bit more "up market" than the usual menus on offer elsewhere and very nice indeed. My friend said her fish dish was excellent and my vegetarian option was good. Still think they (and all other places too) could... More

Set out to investigate Tavira Castle and the near-by churches. En route spotted A Ver Tavira and promised ourselves a visit when we had finished our exploring. Perfect choice. In is in a great spot with views over Tavira. Excellent service at reasonable prices for such an idyllic spot. Will go back.

Excellent service in this eatery located next to the old castle and the camera Obscura. Service was excellent. Prices really reasonable. Food we had was served with great care and politeness. Really tasty too. Wonderful weather makes all the difference.

It's hard to think of anything positive to say about this restaurant apart from it has a great setting. Absolute disaster, they should start again with a new chef and waiting staff. Saturday night and it was empty word must be getting around already.

This place has a very strategic location on the top of a hill, giving it a really nice view of Tavira. It was not very busy when I went. The staff were attentive and it had some good food which was not that expensive actually.
