    Dont be fooled by the outside. Go inside and the food is excellent, service is superb and the surroundings are lovely. Real, authentic, simple, warm, charming.

    We had a lovely family meal, with good wine and all to ourselves!

    Definately try the Steak on a Stone( excellent quality meat) or the Tagines.

    A family meal which will be remembered for a LONG time. :)

    Favorite Dish: Steak on a Stone or Tagines

    Tapas to start with.

    excellent wine at 14.50 Euro

    Sorry! lost in time: Great place to eat

    A number of quayside restaurants in Tavria but this one we travelled back to as we rated the food so much and great price! Cannot remember the name but the only restaurant you can see north of the footbridge, that is up stream. Got very busy on the Sunday although quieter on the second visit during the week. We only really noticed how good the building looked from across the river. Local buskers appear outside to add ambience.

    Favorite Dish: Turkey with cheese baked in oven. Baked chicken in breadcrumbs.

    Alquimia: Local restaurant with Arab taste in Tavira

    by GIP Updated Aug 1, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very nice restaurant close to the river of Tavira.

    It has a nice terrace and around 10 tables in which good seafood and some revisited portuguese dishes are served. It is ideal if you are a bit fed-up with the classical, "very good but equally heavy" kitchen from the Algarve.

    Mixed with the typical portuguese food, there is also a choice of Arab dishes.

    Favorite Dish: Lamb Tajine, huge and spicy, beautifully served in a Tunisian clay recipient.

    It was so nice to be back to normal prices (prices before euro when a coffe was 100 ptas = 0,60 cent of Euro) that we went back a few times.

    They did not overcharge us for being tourist, and they were very nice and helpful all the time

    O Pátio: Great atmosphere

    by Carmela71 Updated Jan 10, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was by pure chance that we founded on our first night this little and cosy restaurant. We arrived to the hotel late and tired after working and driving all day. We hoped to have a quiet meal there and a drink before going bed and wake up fresh for the next day. But that day the hotel had the restaurant fully book, so they told us to go the city center. We walked along the old town for a while not finding anything but enjoying our visit at night through Tavira when crossing the roman bridge I spotted the restaurant.

    It was excellent. The service, the food make it a very special place to be. The tourist office the next day also recommended us this place for a special treatment


    Favorite Dish: For starters they show you a selection of cheeses (take both they are incredible) sardines and tuna paste, olives etc. We just loved the cheese ones so much that we had to came back ;-)

    For main courses you have selections of meat and fish, all at good prices, very well presented with a separate dish of salad and fresh fried potatoes. The sauces that went with the meats or fish were very interesting too.

    We went again and we will be back ;-)

    On roadside and at the beach you find a lot of grills offering fresh fish. An ideal place for those who do not want to pay a lot in restaurants.
