Three times I've been to Vila Nova de Milfontes, 4 times I went to Tasca do Celso. The environment is nice with a semi-traditional decoration. The food is really tasty with excellent quality meat and seafood. The Naco de Carne was deliciously well cooked (sealed on the outside, still soft on the inside) and served with very tasty complements. The... More

We had luck to find a place since we didn't book and it was actually full, but asking again to the close Gourmet bar (which is the same place, just more concentrated on the wine choice instead of the menu, but same kitchen), a waiter who probably found us nice managed to find a seat in 15 mins while we...

Excellent food, excellent service: a must try in the area! As for the presunto as appetizer. The ameijoas à bulhão pato were also fantastic.

I live in Lisbon and frequently explore new restaurants in Portugal. First we were asked if we have a reservation. We didn't, so we're ignored by the first greeter at the door. Then we're seated by another waiter which had a better attitude. Thankfully my wife is Portuguese and we didn't have any issues with the menu. The restaurant doesn't... More

Great portuguese food, mostly traditional dishes - recommend fish - very friendly service and a great place. A bit on the pricey side.

We had the best meat we ever ate at Tasca da Vila! We ordered their local meat, which is a meal for two persons. It arrived on a big wooden plate with a delicious bean and rice stew and the waitress cuts the meat for you at the table. Good and friendly service, the waitress translated the menu for us... More
