“Lovely little restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Enjoyed a very pleasant meal outside this restaurant in the little narrow street. The staff were very attentive and the owner/chef was such a charming lady. She offered advice on the food and allowed us to try some of her cheese as we were not sure whether we would like the flavour. So impressed we reserved the same table for the following evening. The meals were not overpriced and very enjoyable. If we ever visited Tavira again we would certainly return to this Restaurant.

“Gave it a second chance and it was a mistake”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Had a bad experience her the last time we visited but, we are fair people and we know its not easy to get things right all of the time so, we went back, what a mistake! The starter was fine, the main course became a problem, they gave me the wrong meal (same as last time) and my wife ordered Salmon fillet, when it came it was totally uncooked, when we complained the waitress said abruptly so now some people want it well done? Well i am sorry but, we have never been offered rare,medium or well done options for fish before! Steak yes, fish no.
Eventually the owner came accross, grumpy old ... He said eventually that there would be no charge, we actually paid for the cuvert,starter and wine as there was nothing wrong with those, like I said we are fair people and it really anoys us when people treat us with disrespect as they did that night, it was like we are privileged to be in there. Never again!
