Amazing taste, great quality
This tuna is the best you can get. It is more expensive than the others on the market, but it is really worth it to pay the extra. Amazing quality, amazing taste.
I reviewed this back in April 2020 in the early days of lockdown and Tesco didn't publish my review. At the time there were nothing but glowing reviews about how wonderful this tuna was. I complained about a tinful of oily mush that looked nothing like the illustration on the pack. I'm pleased to see that negative reviews have now been allowed and that I wasn't the only person to be disappointed by the product. The flavour may be pleasant, but if you don't want half a tin of oil and half a tin of mush, avoid. There are far better pole-and-line caught tuna products on the market.
Poor quality, not the same Rio Mare Tuna I have had before, mushy and lack taste
Really nice tuna at the special office price. Yes
Really nice tuna at the special office price. Yes its in oil but it isn't as dry as the usual tuna and seems to have more flavour.
Good quality tuna
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.
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
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
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.
