“Great meals with great service... Real Portuguese food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We kept hearing from locals that this is the best restaurant in the area. So we tried it out. Definitely YES! All thumbs up!!!
We arrived very lately for dinner and they accepted us and also arranged the tables to fit all guests even the children and the baby. Fish was great, tasty and well cooked. The service was rapid and very efficient. Kids were happy with a multiple kid’s menu. We tried another time their Cataplaña… it has got to be one of the best we have ever tried even it was ordered 1 hour before to take away.
Tavertino’s is definitely authentic Portuguese food. We'd ordered about 2/3 of the menu and everything was great. The restaurant itself is really charming.

“Raw chicken and poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We were the first at the restaurant on the day we visited, as we had a little one with us. Service was very slow and took about ten minutes just to get our drinks. We ordered food, I had a mixed meat kebab, the meat on the bottom was raw in the middle and the lamb was very tough and grizzly. The pizza was good. The high chair provided wasn't very clean. We remember eating here two years ago and this was one of the restaurants we were looking forward to eating at. Bit disappointed to be honest and will probably wont visit again. The place was very busy so perhaps we were just unlucky with our meal.

“Decent food overshadowed by shocking service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Visited the restaurant a couple of days ago and can safely say we won't go back this week. My pizza was pretty nice, as was my girlfriend's peppered steak but the waiters and the wait time was just ridiculous. We weren't offered drinks for the first 10 mins or so, one starter arrived 15 minutes after the first and I then had to ask 3 times for the bill, two of which were to the same person. Could have been a one off perhaps, but just a shame as the food was good and priced pretty well.
