Castelo Café Restaurante

Castel Cafe e restaurante
Junior castelo-cafe-e-restaurante-tavira

Rua. da Liberdade 76, 8800-399 Tavira, Portugal

Phone: +351 915 087 614

The Castelo Café appears to be a most visit location.  Junior Vitoria is the General Manager Head Chef.   This restaurant seems to revolve around his personality and substantial cooking ability.   The Black Angus steak seem to be the house favourite.

Have researched several reviews on Facebook, Tripadvisor and Google practically all are positive reviews.

Meat eater’s heaven according to one.

Booking essential even in winter.   It only has about 16 covers and inside is very small.   If Junior is on holiday some people don’t bother eating here.

Our suggestion is to book a table as soon as you arrive.

Remember your only 18 miles from the Spanish border.   Wouldnt be unknown to booked a villas in Spain near the border and join Junior and his team in Tavira some night for a wonderful meal.   Book a villa in Tavira or any villas in Portugal on today.
