The best restaurant on Ilha Tavira. The menu is extensive, you can have meat or fish. Lots of choice of the fresh fare, very friendly staff who are multi-lingual. Great place to eat when you want a break from the beach.

This restaurant is on Tavira Island beach, and we were therefore not expecting anything special. However, the TA reviews were good so we gave it a try. It was so good we ended up catching the ferry to the island and beach three times just...More

Nice place but with the crowed August tourists a bit difficult to have a good service. Overall it's nice and the the value for money is fair.
