Good quality tuna

4 stars

I really like this tuna. Yes it does have a little too much oil, but I strained some off and it was fine. Good in a wrap and because it had some oil in it I didn't need mayonnaise. My tin had good solid chunks in.

Excellent quality and taste.

5 stars

Excellent quality and taste. We have been very disappointed with other makes lately so I thought we'd try this after reading the reviews. We are really pleased with it and although it might appear expensive it's a good colour, nice chunks which had to be broken up and made a lovely tuna and mayonnaise sandwich. It obviously depends on your budget but we consider it to be worth the money because we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Pole & Line caught - essential! And in OLIVE Oil

4 stars

This Tuna is Pole & Line caught, which is essential to maintain marine diversity - i.e. NOT Trawled like many tinned Tuna brands. I was especially glad to find some Tuna in OLIVE Oil, although the other brand that I usually buy uses Organic Olive Oil, which I prefer. The first time I opened a can of this I thought that it was really full, but was then disappointed to find that the Tuna was only about half the depth of the can & sitting on half a can's worth of oil. I'm not really complaining about the Olive Oil, because I like that & use it all (rather than draining it off) - it's more a comment on the disappointingly scant amount of Tuna in the can. The Tuna is also lots of squishy bits rather than the fillet shown in the picture on the can's jacket. However, now that I know what to expect, I do sometimes buy it, but only use it when I was going to mush the Tuna up anyway. It is one of the few Pole & Line Caught Tunas in Olive Oil, so I would still rate it 4 stars.

Just a ton of shreds and tiny bits packed with tons of oil. I expected a superior quality for the price. Terrible.

Perfect with a salad

5 stars

I love this tuna! Yes it is oily but olive oil is very good for you. The tuna is flaked in tiny pieces, it's pink in colour and not grey like some other brands. Some tuna have a heavy fish taste or metallic, this is a much lighter taste and I enjoy a tin of tuna with a salad. I buy Rio Mare usually when it's on offer.

Poor consistency and flavour

1 stars

80 percent of the contents was mush and not suitable for any dish requiring flakes or chunks. There was no discernable flavour advantage over cheaper products. Extremely disappointing and absolutely not the expected premium quality.

Mushy & too oily for me

2 stars

Like another reviewer, I bought this on the strength of other reviews. Far too much oil and very slushy. Definitely not worth the extra money above other brands.

Far too oily, very unpleasant. Won’t buy again.

1 stars

Been meaning to try this, to compare. Very glad it was half price, would have been extremely miffed if I’d paid full price. Even after a long draining and allowing the contents to sit on kitchen paper, it was too oily for me. Did not enjoy. Won’t buy again even if the food shortages start again. It didn’t look the illustration either. We’ve eaten far nicer Tesco tinned tuna. Mightn’t have been so unpleasant in brine or spring water, but I won’t be trying any more. I’ll stick with Tesco tuna in sunflower oil Thankyou.

Rather disappointing

3 stars

Far too much olive oil and quite mushy. Given the previous good reviews, am quite disappointed - sorry!.

Perfect quality

5 stars

This tuna is the best! Please make available the brine and spring water ones too.
