Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Went here for Dinner with my family on a Friday evening. The service in the restaurant was absolutely spot on. The food was just magnificent and the menu had plenty of choices on it. I had the beautiful salmon which was certainly a 10/10. The...rest of my family had the Octopus Special and the sea bass. All dishes were just sublime. We would highly encourage anybody in the near by area to stop by this lovely restaurant. Really Really good! 👍More

First visit last night with our friends Alan & Carl. The service was brilliant as was the menu. Shrimp 🦐 starter was great. I had a chicken kebab for main, followed by a caramel ice cream dessert. Hubby had a beautiful steak which looked (and...he said was) amazing. Georgia and Junior and their staff were excellent hosts and warm and welcoming, fully recommend this great place. 👍👍xxMore

Booked a table that day via their website but was told upon arrival it was ‘pending’. Therefore we did not have a reservation. They did find us a table eventually. The service was appalling, waited over an hour for our food. No apology when asked...what the problem was. Gave up trying to get the bill, went straight to the till at the bar to pay. We’ve eaten at many restaurants in the beautiful city of Faro and this has been by far our worst experience.More

Honestly coming to this restaurant was a bit of an afterthought but the ribeye steak I had was absolutely gorgeous. My wife had the picana and we had some salad and chips…what a fantastic meal washed down by a couple of glasses of decent house...wine. Great steak, great service and a very decent price. Well recommended. I’d come back in a heartbeat.More

No doubt the steak is good here, but I wish they offered the choice of a smaller portion. The striploin was perfectly cooked to a medium rare, but must have been about 450 grams - too much for me, and I reluctantly left about 100...grams behind, along with half of the French fries. The wine was good and the bill reasonable.More

On a quiet Tuesday evening we walked around town before stumbling on to this small restaurant. It didn’t look anything fancy and there was one table available outside so we grabbed it. The staff were all male and were very pleasant on our arrival. We...both had steaks and they were both excellent. A bottle of wine and some water and the meal topped out around €70 for both of us.More

A lovely meal for our final night in Tavira. We had tried to turn up without a reservation a previous evening but it is a very popular place and so couldn’t get in. Glad we made a reservation for another night as the food was...fantastic. Efficient staff and a good selection on the menu. Well worth a visit!More
