The good: decoration of the several rooms. The reasonable: food, service and wine list. The bad: cocky owner, high prices, will not return.

I know it is bold to classify a restaurant as THE best, but Tasca do Celso is without a doubt the restaurant that best reflects and explores the portuguese produce and gastronomy. Here you will taste not only great food from Alentejo, but also from allover Portugal, cooked with great respect for traditions, but with a modern twist in a... More

We could hardly wait to enjoy what we expected to be probably one of our favorite dinners while in Portugal. For many, I'm sure this was a perfect experience. We love fish, and as part of our livlihood, we commercially fish. We shared the copper pot of mixed fish "chowder" and potatoes. We spent much of our dinner picking out... More

BOOK in advance! Good restaurant well furnished and clean with fire place. Good food, well groomed and good. Good service a little too hasty, understood by the large turnout of customers, waiting line peak of the season. Owner who tells you what to eat and also takes a sample to make you understand Portuguese cuisine, very nice. Local wine very... More

Excellent food and drinks (try sangria). The ambiance with the fire place is extraordinary and makes you stay all night. You'll never forget the experience.

Lovely bar, restaurant serving great bar food and full service restaurant. Great selection of wine and attentive, helpful staff. Worth going to sit in the cork stools in the bar!

Food was good, staff could be more attentive, especially owner could have helped the staff instead of taking a passive attitude. But my main concern is that this is an extremely overpriced restaurant for the are it is in. We have travelled all over the world and do not think that the price we paid for our dinner was right.

This was meant to be the best restaurant in town according to Lonely Planet but we should have listened to our hotel staff when they said they'd recently had some bad reviews as this place must have gone down hill in the last few months. The location is great and it looks beautiful when you walk in. The staff were... More
