Very RUDE waiter. Breakfast disappointing. Nice spot but will not be going back. Go to riverside cafe by hall. Much nicer staff!

Popped into this lovely little place whilst on a walk round Tavira. The staff were helpful and friendly. The coffee was excellent and the selection of pastries was a treat for the eyes as well as the mouth. The location at the foot of the Roman Bridge is ecellent if you want to people watch!!

Nothing not to love about this cafe. Perfect position at the foot of Taviras Roman bridge and modern amphitheater a perfect roost for morning coffee and pastry or evening coffee brandy and ice cream. Best selection of ices and cones in Tavira. If there is a festival or live music on you will fight for a table. Watch Tavira pass... More

We enjoyed a very relaxing break from our walking tour of Tavira at this lovely, and lively, spot on the main square, close to the Ponta Romana. Service was warm and friendly.

This coffee shop is right in the main square of this cute little town. The staff is friendly and the coffee is very good. They serve the coffee hotter than some places which allows you to linger a little longer at people walking by.

We stopped here for a refreshing ale, on a warm afternoon. The spot was a great spot to sit and watch the world go by, just near Ponte Romana and the town square. The service was prompt intially, and with a demand for immediate payment. Then we were left alone, and had to go search for a waitress to get... More

Situated in the local square in Tavira. Our party of 2 couples found ourselves there a few times for the above treats. Crepes to die for, good spirit based and not short with the alcohol in the Nightcaps. Daytime juices refreshed the pallet after a good healthy walk. Quite a busy evening venue, lots of tables, but book to avoid... More

This cafe is in a wonderful location, just by the bridge in Tavira. But the coffee is truly dreadful. After one taste I brought mine back and the counter staff just took it back without any apology or offer to make another cup. The pastries are just ok. So if you want to go and sit here in this lovely... More
