Ate here before reading the previous reviews. The meals were cheap and to be honest the quality reflected the investment. Decent location and reasonably comfortable tables outside. A bit of a wait and the service was a bit on the slow side. The food however was decent and we had 2x paella for the youngsters, they didn't complain. The only... More

Poor service, food unavailable, what food came was cold, waited an hour to be told no pizza left, no cutlery or plates, only some of the table received drinks. The list goes on ... ended up leaving with no food after hour and a half as it became so comical. Absolutely horrendous!

Absolutely horrendous service! Staff smoking cigarettes and then handling plates of food. Beers being sold at room temperature. Adding the cost of unused and unwanted items such as bread, butter and sardine patè. Food debris and rubbish all over the floor. Made a huge mistake in going here after a day out on an amazing beach. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

Stopped here as the decor was quite nice and nice tables outside. Ordered a fairly simple meal of fish&chips, salad, cheese sandwich and cheese toastie.

Don't choose this one if you are at Tavira beach. Happy servic but the food is pretty below average. Fish catalpa a tasteless and not good quality, fish and chips for daughter two had cold and inedible hard chips, sea bream for daughter one ok but real small. Massively underwhelming but staff nice enough

Try and order something other than the highest priced items and prepare to be treated badly. Enjoy your meal--it will be good, by the way---and then prepare to wait as you have them change your bill when they charge you for all the couverts you refused.

They lure you in with a grilled fish for two people for 15 € and then want you to pay 36 € for a mediocre dourada. Then it does not help that the ensalade de polvo was juicy and delicious and the service was great to start with.

Good value, had a grilled fish dish for two and cost 15 euros , service was ok, not too many people at the restaurant but I would go back. Side note: you have to clean your own fish as they are grilled whole.
