“Great casual spot on the water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Visited Tavira Lounge on a couple of occassions (easy lunch and then after-dinner drinks). Both times, we had a very favourable experience. We also had children with us and they were well looked-after as well. The staff is friendly enough and the service decent. Lunch was delicious for all (salads, soups and sandwiches). There's also a large of selection of pastries and sweets for all.

If you take a spot towards the back of the lounge, you can look out on the river.

“Great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Great bar/cafe at very reasonable prices. We enjoyed a lovely tapas meal with a bottle of wine for around 30 euros.

“A great pleasure yet again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Just returned from a second visit to lovely Tavira. We arrived late and headed straight for the Tavira Lounge as we knew what to expect, good food, good atmosphere, good service, once again it had it all. It was packed for a Monday, we got the last table. Unfortunately the owners had the night off but we went for drinks 4 nights later and saw them. Us ladies went home leaving the men asking Katia to do the impossible, get them home in half an hour for supper! You did your best Katia. See you next year. Linda and David

“Great hosts, food, value and ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Second visit to Tavira in 2012 and the Tavira Lounge is busy as ever, it's a bar, a cafe, place to meet, eat, Internet, etc. All things to all people much enhanced by Katia & Georges welcome.
Overall Number one in Tavira for value and good, honest food. Doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't.
Two dinners there, Chicken Curry better than ever this time, mild and succellent, Meatballs always good. Starter of Portugese Bruschetta yummy. Cheesecake so good, had to have it both visits. Housewines red and white consistently good and reasonably priced.

“Consistently fresh, home made food to die for !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile


Every time we visit Tavira we never tire of eating at the Tavira Lounge where the multi-lingual Katia & Georges are more than happy to look after you. The combination of relaxed, friendly service together with uncomplicated, fresh, tasty food make it my favourite eatery in this beautiful town.

While we were here this time we sampled their bruschetta, chunky meatballs, subtle take on chicken curry, melt in your mouth chocolate cake and the amazing cheesecake. You can understand why I am tempted back time after time, and I'm never, ever disappointed.  Give yourself a treat ... you won't regret it :)))  Just do it !!!
