Tavira Food  and Drink

One of the wonderful aspects of Tavira is the Mediterranean diet. The quality of life enjoyed by the local people has much to do with what they eat and drink. The climate is brilliant for growing the finest food, and produce some superb wine. Add the history of the Moorish occupation and you have the elements for some of the best in Portuguese eating and drinking. And just the proximity of the sea adds an amazing choice of the best seafood any where in Europe

To make the most of your experience here it is wise to have an idea before you arrive of what the area has to offer. An understanding of the food available is also important. Portuguese food to us does not have the elaborate infusions of Italian cooking nor the same use of spices of the Spanish. It is based upon simple method of using good local products and subtlety adding flavours with the locally grown herbs and spices. of these products

Portuguese wine to us is of the best in the World. Huge improvements have been made over recent years to modernise techniques whilst at the same time still utilising local grape varieties totally unique to this country. The results are seen in every restaurant and café you visit. In addition, the prices for this quality product far exceeds your every expectation.

We do not recommend places to eat, wines to drink or cafés to visit that we do use ourselves. We welcome comments from all our site visitors to mention what they have enjoyed  and of course we will include them on our site.
