The food is very good and freshly cooked and so there is always a wait. Normally this is acceptable but it becomes an annoyance at mid evening and on weekends.
Some meals, the Tuna with onions and potatoes for instance with a bottle of the Moncau vinho verde are outstanding and worth the wait. Go around 7pm, go to the left hand side room where waiters are nicer, (avoid outside which has become the smoker's area). Skip the bread and bits and order a light starter and maybe half bottle of wine and take your time with this. Follow with one of the excellent fish dishes and more expensive wine. Calculate cost of food as you go along. If busy go to another bar for coffee and sweet and leave amount on table without waiting for bill.
The meal described above is about Euro 37 for two and I can't wait to get back there.

Reasonably priced with well cooked local seafood and other dishes. The cuttlefish and their speciality 'sole with orange' was delicious.

Every year we eat at Bica it's a feast! This simple, no nonsense restaurant is typical Portugese. We always sit at the left side with Senhor Helder as our waiter (a really nice man!). Our favorite dish is the Linguado con Laranja, such a lush meal! The wines are at a really fair price. End with a Bica (espresso) and a Amarguinha (Almond liquor). And if you still have extra space have a look at their great desserts! Can't wait till next year!

On our first night in Tavira we asked our hotelier where to eat and he said Bicas. So we went . It serves piping hot freshly cooked food which is just good well cooked Portugese food. Service was also excellent, ignore other winges about it ! Locals eat there, always a good sign. We ate several times during our stay in september 2012 and it was consistently good. It is also really good value for money.
