Upon reading the reviews of this establishment, we decided to go. What a mistake! We arrived to our reservation at 1pm, the table wasn't ready and we had to organise our own seating. Then after taking our drinks order she told us that the chef had not arrived but was on his way! Following that she told us that he... More

You do not go here for the ambience and the design. You go here for the freshest seafood in Tavira. Live crabs, lobsters and crayfish in tanks. We had large oysters and dressed crabs with a Lovely Duoro White wine. Just outside the market hall in a very basic setting.

Three of us ate here recently because we noticed the shellfish was displayed in tanks at the front of the restaurant and must therefore be the freshest (maybe).

Lots of tanks inside with various shellfish . Staff eager to help. Whole crab 13 euro dressed or natural. Mussel stew 9 euro maybe a bit expensive but tasty. Sit inside or outside , clean with nice toilets. Meat on the menu too. Will try to go back this week for another crab and might try lobster. Take credit cards.
