Unlike most restaurants in Tavira, this one doesn’t appear to focus exclusively on the tourist trade. Traditional Portuguese food, very fresh fish, Portuguese spoken all around you, very reasonable prices, a much better value than better rated places.

This restaurant is on the river, you can eat in or sit out. It is spotlessly clean, portugese meat or fish. The price is very good about 55 euros for 5 people with drinks. People queue and wait for tables.
