Excellent food, excellent position on the banks of the Rio Gilao. The best place for lunch in Tavira.

Had visited here for riverside gin and tonics in September and was pleased to see it open over Christmas. Really enjoyed well cooked food, good wine, more gin and some help with our Portuguese from the ladies working there. Will def return!

We went twice in a day! Delicious seafood and fabulous steak, cooked to perfection, all this with the support of a great staff, under the discerning eye of the dedicated owner. It was a “sans faute” twice, and we will go back before we leave....More

I just love this place. The food is faultless. Delicious starters, generous tasty mains, home made puddings. A great welcome from the lady who owns this, quite a character. Great setting, outside by the river. I love it!!

A nice intimate place situated in a great location overlooking the river and bridge. Food was excellent - great range of tapas and the black pork was exquisite. Friendly and helpful staff as well.

Four of us booked a table and went for a Friday evening supper. The restaurant was lovely and warm, as was the welcome we received from the staff. We ordered the bread and olives starter while we read and chose from the varied menu. Three...More

One of the nicest places in Tavira. Been going there for 9 years and always consistent. Good staff and owners that really care about their business. Great location on the river and good variety of fresh food. Won't be disappointed if you go for lunch...More
