Of course the historical setting of the monastery sets the mood for a nice dinner but you should also come to enjoy the talent of the chef. The dishes we had were clearly off the beaten path of the touristy places around and offered a genuine taste of the country. I still remember a week late the subtle dry tuna, perfect starter and the very tasty cod with favas and chorizo, mixing land and sea flavors. Nice deserts and decent wine list. Our most enjoyable food in Tavira.

We were staying at the local Pousada with our 14 year old Grandaughter for 7 nights so we used tripadviser to direct us to suitable restaurants. We were without a car so all the restaurants had to be in town- this ruled out a couple of top rankers (Amore Vero and Vela 2) and a couple of the top rankers we didn't like the look of from the outside ( Taska and Cantinho do Emigrante) so we settled on the Pousada restaurant / Amore Vero / Abstracto-twice / Aquasul / Lagoas Bica-twice.I will review all of these restaurants for tripadviser.
Firstly let say that my understanding that this restaurant is open to the general public for dinner and therefore I am surprised that there are no reviews other than those that appear as part of the Pousada reviews.This review is to help those readers that are visiting Tavira but are not staying in the Pouada. Compared to the other restaurants visited in Tavira (on 2 visits) the dining room can only be described as 'grand'. A completely different experience and worth the effort and expence for a special/different night out.The food does not come up to this level but is not bad either. On this occasion we had a guest so there were 4 of us ( because we had a guest we wanted dine in such a nice setting). There is the usual variety of fish and meat plus vegitarian all using local ingredients and where possible traditional dishes. We all had 3 courses my Grandaughter scallops to start and fish mains that included a sort of freshwater lobster (the most expensive). Our guest (beef) and I(lamb) had the meat and my wife the sea bass. We also had an excellent bottle of wine. The total cost came to 140 euros. Yes this was more expensive than the restaurants of Tavira but a completely different dining experience and well worth a visit.
