The food was lovely, and the service super-friendly and accommodating. Really cute place and the service feels very personal because of that..

First visit the boss took our order and was very helpful and gracious. Cooked me a bespoke vegan pasta dish and my Mum Salmon in pasta both beautiful dishes cooked with love and skill.
Second visit Mum and I arrived at 18.10 the doors were open and 2 of the staff sat outside. Young woman who had served us (after our initial order was placed) the day before looked up and said we are not open come back at 18.30. She did not acknowledge we had been in the night before but much more importantly did not offer us a seat and or drink to wait until they started serving. Mu Mum is 76 and walks using a walking stick. We left saddened by this attitude and did not return. They have signs about love and respect on the walls of the restaurant. Love and respect are wonderful gifts we can offer others,but they need practical application not just written sentiment. My suggestion is live these ideas do not leave them as words on a wall.

Not a restaurant you would stumble on but well worth a visit. It is a short walk from the main square.
What a beautiful meal we had everything prepared and cooked to a very high standard. All 3 members of staff were very attentive. We had 3 courses all delicious my wife had the best peach and Parma ham salad imaginable for her starter.
A great find.

We all had lovely fruity salads for starters and then burger, chicken and 2 different pastas. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food and the service was great. We felt that we were really looked after by all the staff. We would recommend a visit

Not long back from our meal at the Food Factory. Only went there as we were headed to another restaurant!
Impressions outside? Like a lot of the wee places in Tavira, you have to go and sample before making up your mind.
The place was spotless and welcoming, not busy at all. As we sat down, another couple who had just settled up and were leaving, mentioned how much they'd enjoyed their meal.
We didn't have starters, favouring the dessert instead. All the food is fresh and inviting.
When you go, don't expect to be rushed, although the staff were attentive when called upon (for the bill, for example).

All in all, a great find, fresh food, good choice on the menu (not extensive), plentiful and very tasty (especially the chicken and herb ravioli). Bill came to a reasonable €80 between three, which included sangria and beer.

Suited foodies like us.
