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

Had lunch here today and we were really impressed. Lovely food with a good selection of mains on the set menu. Starters and desserts just had 2 choices but the ones we opted for were very nice. €8.50 per head including wine and coffee. Wow!

Tucked away on a quiet cobbled street in Lagoa you will find this hidden gem. Traditional Portuguese food with a touch of elegance. Fantastic service, a wide range of good wines and a menu that you will have difficulty deciding just what great meal to have. Marco is the perfect host and makes everybody feel welcome. If you are passing... More

This little restaurant is a 'must' for anyone in the vicinity of Lagoa. The food is excellent and the house wine at Euro 6,50 per bottle an absolute steal. Unbelievably, the cover charge for bread, butter and olives is only 50 centimes and very often comes without charge. Marco and Clara are to be congratulated on a really splendid family... More

Busy lunch time restaurant behind the market in the centre of Lagoa. Freshly cooked meat & fish, good house wine - a very enjoyable experience, definitely worth seeking out.
