Had lunch of grilled seabass and sautéed vegetables with potatoes, my partner had John Dory with passion fruit sauce. We had bread, butter, olives, glass of wine and coke for €35...lovely setting overlooking the harbour. Beautiful quaint town.. Recommend this restaurant. Fish was absolutely delicious..

We came here Saturday evening with a couple of friends, and since we enjoyed it so much we came back for Sunday lunch with a different friend. Both meals were very good, especially the prawn crepes and also the lamb cutlets. The Deserts were excellent and we really enjoyed the chocolate and lemon tart. Service was good and the only slight downside was waiting almost 20 minutes for the bill.

We stumbled across this gem as we strolled along the harbour in Santa Luzia. The decor was charming and there were several tables filled on a somewhat breezy May Friday at lunchtime. The owner was charming and helpful. He introduced us to our fish - fresh that day from the market - before taking it away and cooking it. We started with a simple, delicious octopus salad. The octopus was so tender it melted in the mouth. Our grilled fish was cooked to perfection and served with boiled potatoes and a simple salad of lettuce, tomatoes and grated carrots. The wine recommendation, Prova Regia, was perfect with our meal. It was difficult to choose between the chocolate mousse (no sugar added) or the mango and cinnamon mousse - so we had one of each. Both were superb, but the unusual combination of mango & cinnamon just edged into first place.
Throughout the meal, the owner was helpful, friendly and showed quite a sense of humour, without ever being intrusive.
I am sorry we are not in to area longer as i would love to return to this delightful restaurant.

I was not happy when my wife picked this place. The kitchen style is unclear: a little Portuguese, a little African, lots of Italian...but, I must admit, the food was VERY good. The wines are clearly overpriced for Portuguese standards.

Loved this place in my opinion best octopus restaurant in santa luzia
We have eaten several dishes all have been delcious
Good place to sit outside sheltered from the midday sun with plenty of outside tables
The waiters are lovely taking the time to explain all
Special mention for the mixed salad and the octopus bean starter and the cuttlefish
It is great value being less expensive than the restaurants situated further up and to me the dishes are slightly better

Small And Cozy Restaurant
There are lots of good places to wine and dine in the area, however, none provide the very special service and attention given by Tito, the proprietor. The food and wines were excellent and good value for money, but, the ambience created by Tito is...MoreThank you very much for your review. Looking forward to see you again Mr. Carlton. Best regards Tito and Paula (wife and Chef - credits also go to the kitchen) Again, thank you

It is on the quay side. Small and a favourite of ours. Owned by two sisters - Julia is M'd - wonderful host. Lunch/tourist menu is excellent value.
It took us two attempts to find this highly-recommended restaurant - perhaps because there is no signage outside. We should have realised, however - the tables outside this quite small restaurant on the riverside just past the Mercado da Ribeira were packed, while the considerably larger restaurants on either side were virtually empty. And if that was not a good enough clue, the clincher was the redoubtable owner Julia holding court among her customers and exchanging repartee with passers-by.
It was so good that though we originally planned to eat at a different restaurant each night during our stay in Tavira, we returned to A Barquinha for our final meal. On both occasions the food was delicious, the service impeccable and the welcome truly friendly. Julia has the gift of making you feel like an old friend, and her advice on what to order is sound...she does her best to cater to what you want rather than what she wants to sell.
On our first visit I ordered veal with mushrooms - really tasty - and for our farewell meal had the Golden Bream recommended by Julia. It was superb - as was the delicious salad served before the main course. I know it seems odd to rave about a salad, but as other reviewers have noted, it really is special!
Four main courses, one dessert, a bottle of wine and three beers came to just 68€. What a treat!

Santa Luzia is a lovely fishing village in Eastern Algarve. We visited this restaurant and had an excellent meal. An abundance of seafood and other dishes in offer. The staff were very welcoming, polite and the food arrived very quickly. Efficient service with a smile and the food was delicious. Definitely will return to this place.

Pessoa's is a cozy cafe with character, situated in the heart of the pittoresque town of Tavira. With our ample selection of tapas & wine you can truly enjoy our beautiful view. All our goods are fresh from the local market!
Drinks and tapas on the pavement or inside. I prefer inside by the door as it’s the best of both worlds. You can see the river and surroundings but not be almost run over or have people smoking around you. Food is fresh and tasty and service is friendly. Not as cheap as many.
