“Wonderful food and great value children's menu”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

Myself and my family had some lovely food tonight in the beautiful setting of this restaurant. Such a shame that myself and my husband's mains and deserts both arrived 25 minutes later than those of our children. We like to eat together as a family but tonight essentially had 2 separate meals. The restaurant wasn't even busy, only 1 other table was taken. Such a shame as all our meals were wonderful and very reasonably priced - this did spoil the evening somewhat.

“Could do much better consistantly”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We ate here three times. The first visit was with 4 families, and we had book the table for 7;30. Food was excellent and service was ok, so we returned. 2nd night was just two of us. Service was slow, orders were forgotten, meal mixed up, and bill was wrong. The 3rd visit was with the group again, and it was a disaster. The orders were taken promptly but the service was atrocious. Kids were starving when their food eventually arrived, and then a while later our starters arrived. Drinks orders were forgotten, wine was warm, and the main courses took two hours from time we arrived to make it to the table, at this stage kids were looking for their desert, which took a further 15 minutes. Didn't enjoy the well done steak with blood flowing out of it.

“Beautiful food in a fabulous setting and at a fair price”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

We decided to visit here on the back of other reviews and were blown away by the service , food quality and price - if you visit one place while in Cabanas you simply must go to this little gem hidden inside a holiday apartment complex. The prettiest restaurant I have ever been in too - top quality and absolutely faultless in every way.

“A different atmosphere in a touristic town”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

The restaurant is not in the seaside front line, so one will find a more quiet atmosphere. Along with it, the menu also differs from the regular menus from the majority of the restaurants in town. The dishes have a nice presentation either it is the "Bacalhau on the roof tile" or the pork loin. The restaurant also has a nice pasta. The variety of dishes is not large but they are adequate. Also try the desserts which are delicious. Price is fair and the location quite pleasant.

“Amazing fine dining hidden in Cabanas”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Just finished the most amazing meal in O Monte.
Service second to none. We spent the last 3 nights waiting on average 1hr for starters.. This was not the case here. Our server was very friendly, please be sure to ask him for his recommendations on the menu. I had pork with gratin potatoes.... Absolutely delicious.my partner had duck which was equally delicious.
This place is an absolute gem. It's not as cheap as other restaurants in Cabanas but the food and service are worth it.
If you are staying in tavira or the surrounding areas I thoroughly recommend coming here!!!
