Went at lunchtime on Sunday 26 MarchWe arrived 15 minutes before 1pm and put our orders in just as the place was beginning to fill up. The waiter brought us starters and water. About 15 mins later he brought one of the ordered dishes : octopus salad. Then the couple who had sat down at the next table a good... More

It was a spontaneous decision to eat something in Santa Luzia as we were only passing by. After a long walk along the promenade, we settled on A Casa restaurant. It looked like they were ready to close, but still they welcomed us in. We were the only customers, yet they served us in a very friendly and patient manner.... More

Have to admit the food was faultless, had some unusual but tasty octopus, was just a nightmare getting the waiter's on a busy evening. Go at lunch or before 7.30pm on a holiday period to get the most out of the place.

Ate here twice during a stay in Tavira. Both visits were for lunch and one thing we all loved were the half portions on some items. Just the right amount of food for us older folks. The octopus was without a doubt the most tender I have eaten in my life. Service was very good and pleasant. Wish I could... More

The food is great and the service is quite nice and kids friendly! The octopus dishes are amazing and I would highlight the fillets and the roasted. Those are great!! And very reasonable in terms of price! The only negative aspect is the time you need to wait to have a table for dinner. They only accept reservations until 8pm... More

We went there for the octopus and we weren't deceived. It was very good. We had octopus salad and octopus main dishes. Great choices of food, service was very good and we didn't wait long.

We watched the Euro football finals here. The owner served us all champagne--FREE This is the best Octopus restaurant, not Casa de Polvo, which was its original name. Clams always perfect.too Dedicated staff. Great view.

Great fish lunch, slow service but the food was worth waiting for, well all of the fish dishes were, someone in our party opted for steak, bad idea, stick to the fish and you won't be disappointed, get there early at lunch time or you wont get a table, well worth a visit.

We stumbled into Santa Luzia almost by accident and even better we discovered this little gem of a restaurant. The staff are really friendly and we were lucky to have a table available (there was a big queue when we left). The food was really tasty. We shared the cuttlefish starter and then both had different variations of octopus -... More
