Having looked forward to eating here for the past five years it was most disappointing to find things had changed dramatically. My husband and I spent several enjoyable nights at the previous venue which was very "tight",space wise but where the waiteres / owners always had time to have a chat, albeit a quick one as the venue was so...

Really nice restaurant with superb food. Very nice service and a nice view of the river from the rooftop. Start to finish it is a nice place to have dinner. Always busy during summer so make reservations early.

A pleasant restaurant with open air roof terrace which is lovely in the summer. Food is good, a mix of Portuguese and Northern European. Service is friendly but not fast.

My wife and I then shared two main course dishes: arroz de mariscos and grouper & shrimp in a béchamel sauce. Each of these was excellent! Their wine list was extensive, and most were very reasonably priced. The dining room was packed... More

This restaurant has one of the more imaginative menus in Tavira and a pretty decent wine list to boot. You should always reserve and out of season a call at lunchtime on the day of the intended visit will suffice. In Summer I'd suggest booking a few days in advance. Second tip the indoor part of the restaurant has a... More

Visited again and we were impressed again by the service, atmosphere, choice of food and wines and of course the cooking of our chosen dishes. We both chose the Duck in Orange Sauce for a change to our usual favourites and were very impressed. We pre-booked a table on the roof and were impressed by the atmosphere. The new lighting... More
