Great meals and service but tucked out of the way

Visited twice and on both occasions had a first class meal with friendly and efficient service. Good value and the only downside is that it is tucked away a bit behind the square in Monte Carvoeiro and may be difficult to find. Worth spending time to find it as well worth a visit

A family run restaurant with the father -very much @ the front -mother in the kitchen - Excellent Portuguese food - generous portions - jugs of local wine - not an easy place to find in narrow dark streets of Lagoa - if going look it up during the day light .

A small boutique restaurant hidden away behind the Post Office, where it would be prudent to make a reservation to avoid disappointment. Marco whilst being front of house, his good lady slaves away in the kitchen to produce some well selected dishes to suit all palates. Small but a very selective wine cellar. You will still have some money left... More

Marco Santander and his wife Clara have moved to larger premises in Carvoeiro. The friendly welcome, the ambience, the food and the wine are as good as ever. Fantastic value. Marco still owns the smaller A Tasquinha in Lagoa but is currently searching for someone to run it for him. So, as at 13 November 2014 the Lagoa restaurant is... More

Went to A Tasquinha in Lagoa last night. It was closed. The father of the owner happened to be there and he told us that the owner has opened another restaurant, confusingly also called A Tasquinha, in Monte Carvoeiro, and that all the staff from the Lagoa restaurant have gone with him to this new one. I thought it was... More

We went to the new a Tasquinha restaurant in the Monte Carvoeiro to celebrate my mother and father in law’s 40th wedding anniversary. The staff were very welcoming and the food was fantastic. Upon finding out the occasion the manager sent down free drinks to the table. It was also very child friendly. Our experience here was excellent and I... More

We arrived at 21:15 and the waiter basically refused to serve us. I asked if they had table and the gentleman very mockingly says: we're full. Usually in Portugal any waiter after that will say if there is a table soon or not, but there was silence. I actually had to ask if there was a vacancy soon which was... More
