We've been going in this restaurant since we first went to Albufeira 10 years ago & have been going in ever since, we usually manage a week and a mini break every year. Decided some years back that I wanted to spend my 50th in Tasca and asked friends & family if they'd like to come. In the end we... More

We read the reviews on Tripadvisor and a local dining magazine and the restaurant lived up to expectations. Very welcoming and lively food. Well worth a visit.

We wanted to go to a tradditional portuguese restaurant whilst we was away, this was recommended by a friend who had been the previous year...food was lovely and fresh with friendly staff. Finished off nicely with some complimentary port.

We booked a table on the recommendation of the manager at the resort we stayed in. The restaurant was very quiet so the staff were able to be particularly attentive. The food was very good - I can recommend the fish cataplanya in particular. We received complementary port at the end of the meal which was a nice touch.

We were in Albufeira three weeks in March and once a week dined at Tasca. It was a favourite last year and didn't disappoint this year. Our friends loved it as much as we did! We had Corvina, a fresh catch, grilled for four. It was one of the best fish dinners ever. You can trust their recommendations from fish... More

Recommended by one of the hawkers from another restaurant along this strip of the beachfront Boardwalk, we took this as a good sign. A little more expensive than the others along this part of the beach prices are still reasonable for the quality. Four of us shared the Portugese cataplana for three. The waiter suggested that this would be plenty... More

We visited in February when Albufiera is quiet. Ate here four nights out of Severn the food was so nice. Would recommend this place to anyone. Owners are extremely friendly and we felt very comfortable here.

We had hoped to have a lovely meal as this place had been recommended for the quality of the fish. The garlic bread was made from stale bread as it was so hard, the grilled prawns were overlooked and dry, fresh crab was delicious, but the sole and cod were overcooked and dried up .Iin fact I have never eaten...
