Old restaurant in town. Moved to a new place, but the food remains good. Fish or meat, just choose. Tradition is here, with a modern touch

Very pleasant restaurant. Fresh fish was very nice vegetables were rather disappointing very soft as if over cooked. Staff very friendly but just love the atmosphere of this Restaurant. See you next year on our visit to Tavira

Excellent traditional Portuguese dishes. The new location with roof terrace affords views over the Rio Gilao and beautiful Tavira.

We took some local friends to try the restaurant after our very succesfull last visit. The four of us had duck and fish both of which were excellent especially the duck in the orange sauce. The fish was very fresh and plenty of it. We had both white and red house wine which was excellent and very reasonably priced.

This is full of tourists/expats but you can tell that it's very well run by the manager/owner so well worth a visit. I had a delicious Grouper (fish) in Bechamel Sause and we had a decent bottle of wine at a reasonable price. Being January, it was a bonus (for Portugal) that it was pretty warm inside. Would definitely visit... More

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.
