Lovely décor and food to match with a good quality house wine. Self cooked meat platter was a novelty and good fun for the girls whilst our steaks was cooked beautifully and in a quality sauce. Laid back waiter added to the experience (probably not the best place if your in a rush). The place is cosy so in high... More

Loved this place although service was slow. Food very fresh and absolutely beautifully cooked. Had chicken in sauce abs steak in sauce, tender meat and tastiest sauces we have ever had. Very good chocolate cake too! It is a very meaty menu so veggies beware!

Went to this lovely little hidden gem tonight as I have done in past years, the food was amazing as always it was a shame we were the only ones in there! Please please give it a try it's only just off the main square and far far better food than most of the restaurants in Tavira. It's small but... More

We booked in advance prior to arrival in Portugal because we ate at this restaurant last year and it was lovely. Really nice cosy setting, but when the waiter came to ask if everything was alright, we had to say that the sirloin steak was just awful. I had mine medium to well done and hubby had rare, but both... More

Have walked past this restaurant many times in the past 7 years and finally decided to give it a go. At time of out visit there were no other diners in and this can be a little off putting BUT shouldn't be. The food was fabulous and the steak was by far the best steak I have ever had and... More

Very nice restaurant with outstanding food. The restaurants is a bit small but it ads to the ambiance. The decoration of the restaurant is very nice and the food is great.

Went to this restaurant with my boyfriend on our holiday, loved it so much we went back 3 days later! An amazing steakhouse, had the sirloin with door-8 sauce, just the thought of it has my mouth watering! My boyfriend ordered the same meal both times as he loved it so much. The waiter was wonderful and so attentive, he... More

This is a little gem, highly recommended, lovely steakhouse, we tried the fondue it was amazing. Just of the Square in Tavira. The staff was amazing you couldn't ask for a more romantic and quaint place, just 18 places so book to avoid being disappointed.

Why this restaurant is not in Tavira's top ten, is beyond me. We came across A Taska about 3 years ago and it was superb then. Still the same owner/chef and his attention to detail is stunning. The decor is very Mediterranean and the menus are still quirky. the wine list was inside a Tin Tin annual. There's no fish,... More

What a refreshing experience! Romantic atmosphere. Very plesant and great service. Great food. We loved the menu and concept of fondue and cooking our own food on hot stones. Finally someone has managed to create a different resturant experience which is unique and different to the "stereotypic" resturants in Tavira/Algarve. Highly recommended.
