We found this restaurant completely by chance, since it is a bit hidden, but once we had a look inside we couldn't resist it. The waiter was charming, and the cook came to visit us at the table which felt very nice and attentive. We ate fondue and steak on the stone, and both came garnished with plenty of sauces... More

Amazing homemade food, excellent wine, plus the environment as well as staff just made me feel at home. Great for Portuguese who miss home, and for foreigners who are looking for real and tasty Portuguese food.

This little restaurant is very well fitted out with great decor and the food and service was excellent however the kitchen is situated immediately behind the seating area and the fumes from the deep frying or grilling gradually filled the room and by the time we finished our meal it was quite overpowering, in fact we could smell the cooking...

In the winter closed Tavira, we took a good look at what restaurants we could choose from, and we where looking for something more than the average tourist-cafe. By the square, we found A Taska that had some good reviews, for my birthday dinner. The place is small, with only 18 seats - but very nicely contemporarily decorated with a... More

Excellent meal, beautifully presented, super Alentejo House Wine, lovely friendly service. In response to the French review, I travelled extensively in France on business and never once had a good steak. Good sauces in France tend to mask poor quality meat. Overall had MUCH better steaks in Portugal. Keep up the good work A Taska.

Ok the interior design is really neat, the atmosphere is great and exotic but chic as well, there is attention to detail (even the menu), the waiter is really nice (the boss lady not very smiling but we only had to deal with the German waiter) and the food is rather good but no way this is the best restaurant...

Good idea to book ahead as many were turned away when we ate here. Our meals were delicious and there was a different menu which makes a change. The starters we had were bacon and dates and apple and goats cheese with apple and local jam both of which were yummy and the portions were not small. They were happy... More

Got very lucky finding this place. We walked in and got the last table available that night, and it sounded like they were booked up the rest of the weekend as well. House red wine was lovely. Both my husband and I got the steak with mushroom sauce, and both LOVED it. It did take quite a while to get... More
