Found this place on our first night here. What a find. We were made to feel really welcome including the kids. Nothing was too much trouble. Fish and prawn skewers were awesome.

We both had an excellent meal at an incredibly low price. The house wine looks cheap - it is anything but - try it! The staff are very friendly and attentive, and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit in Cabanas.

What a fantastic meal. We had stuffed chicken and fish pie. Absolutely delicious. We saw other people's food as well and the fish dishes looked good as well.

This was recommended by the owner of an apartment we rented in Tavira, and we were very pleased. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, prompt service yet at a relaxing pace. The fish and chips are less than 10 euros and they keep bringing more fish if you want! Excellent!!

Visited here based on reviews and we weren't disappointed. Steak on the stone was gorgeous and very large portion. Staff were also very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend if you want a good meal in cabanas.

Living in Tavira we often go to Sabores da Ria. Paulo and his great staff are simply amazing. Brilliant menu, superb service, excellent view. I always have the crab pate to start and then Prawn curry for main course and a bottle of house white wine. Absolutely fantastic. Definitely recommend Sabores da Ria - Thank you Paulo and staff.

Living in Tavira, we have visited this restaurant on many occasions. On our most recent visit, I opted for the fish pie. Not had this before, but had been highly recommended by local friends. Well, I was not disappointed. It was simply superb. Hot and straight from the oven, the pie was stuffed with fresh fish and seafood. Simply delicious!... More
