Very nice sit down restaurant. Very nice service and a large selection of foods. Seafood to chicken. Nice place to sit out on sidewalk. Always busy during summer. Very relaxing place to spend the evening having a big dinner at a good price. Very Portuguese. A must to visit. Also a plce to get take away chicken and other items.

During the summer there is a large area outside in the laneway which is popular with tourists. Indoors it is small enough. The food is Portuguese cooking and reasonable in price. Staff are friendly and helpful.

We chose this restaurant to have our typical Chicken Piri Piri. We were disappointed in the dish - not much meat on the bones, thin chips which were soon cold and a very strange "salad". We didn't order bread and pate but they served it anyway, but it wasn't on the bill; they undercharged us for the bottle of wine.... More

Wonderful food, visited here 3 times in one week and each time we were very lucky to get a table inside. Not very big but a good menu with great service.

Visited last night. Very disappointed with the quality of the food served to the four of us. Not to the standard of the restaurants in Cabanas. Would not visit again.

We had a great meal here yesterday. The owner is absolutely adorable, she is always around the same as the waiters. The food was great and the portions are huge. I hope to return here soon to have another great meal.

Churrasqueira O Manuel was probably the best food I had in all of Portugal, amazing portions, chicken, salads.. you name it. Staff are very friendly, The service is amazing also... Churrasqeira O Manel is the place to be for an amazing dinner in Tavira.

This is a great place for Portuguese style chicken. The salads are very good, too. The staff are friendly and attentive. I would recommend getting there between 7 pm and 8 pm if you want to avoid waiting since it does get pretty busy.

Tavira in the height of summer is a busy place. It's tough to get a table but we were lucky enough to be wandering past and jumped in to a table for two outside. We had no preconceptions and were a bit apprehensive as to whether it would be any good. We were pleasantly surprised, standard covers, but did the... More

good position outside, nice view of street if you face the Roman bridge, and well-shaded in the evening. i had clams, which were delicious, though better eaten with bread I think than the chips provided. everyone else's food (prawns, cuttlefish) looked pretty tasty as well. very hard to attract service though, had to ask three times for bread, and the...
