Saw this was No1 in Tavira on trip advisor & gave it a go. Started with garlic prawns, which were great and then shared a cataplana which was really superb. It's good value and the staff are friendly.

You do need to book - usually a couple of days in advance in August anyway.

Sat on a street corner watching the world go by as the best steak in town is lovingly prepared for me, whilst drinking wine and chatting to complete strangers is my idea of fun! If you want fast food, go elsewhere. This is food that is all cooked fresh and lovingly prepared. The chef pays much attention to detail. A lovely warm family friendly atmosphere, excellent prices for the quality of meat and portion size. Booking is essential. Mixed grill for 9 euros was amazing quality and value. One between 2 children would be more than sufficient and my two eat well!

Usually less tha n 50 euros for a starter and 2 mains with 2 bottles of wine-the food is always of a very high standard and serves by the wonderful chef who is a real character-when you arrive your name is written on the tablecloth which is a lovely touch-this is the best in tavira with out any pretentious rubbish

I have hesitated a lot to try "O castelo" since it is normally crowded with tourists and I just hate tourist traps. Well, this is not a tourist trap, but an honest restaurant with one of the best grills I have ever tasted. The owner and chef really knows his business and excels when grilling succulent meats and shrimps. The waiters are quite friendly and do their best to adjust everything to the client's taste (ex. the amount of sugar in the caipirinha). The only downside of the evening were the chips, clearly frozen and not made of fresh potatoes, but this is only a minor remark and will not matter to most. Overall, excellent experience and we will certainly come back.

Go there, you won't be disappointed. Lovely crew. It'll take you 2 hours for your meal so just settle back and enjoy your company.
