Tasca do Celso

Tasca do Celso was quite a suprise. I never imagined that a typical portuguese house could host such a big space...We had a Cataplana which was cooked really well and some starters, equally good. Good value for money. For two people we paid 70€ but had starters and 2 bottles of wine.

My family and I stopped here for lunch on the way to Lisbon. It was excellent. More than anything, I would recommend the tapas style servings of jamon serrano, chorizo, etc. definitely worth a visit.

Amazing food with a great service! I was truly pleased every time I went. The food is as portuguese as you can get, and it's a real showcase of what southern portuguese cuisine has best to offer.

Lucky to stumble upon this restaurant and to get a table without a reservation. A family arriving after us was turned away. Waiters made you feel welcome and tried their best to translate the menu for you. Although they had no seafood rice on the menu, the waiter agreed to have some made when I indicated I was keen on...

Probably the best restaurant in Alentejo and one of the best in Portugal. The ingredients are all fresh and the food it is prepared with the simplicity and genius of the owner! Amazing wine list from wines from North to South. My advice it is to go and don't chose the food let the owner chose what you will eat!

Authentic Portuguese cuisine as certified by my Portuguese wife (on trip advisor the restaurant is incorrectly classified as serving pizza, which is Not on the menu). We tried the best bbq pork, and clams. Try their prosciutto.

I know this restaurant since the begining. And everytime I get back I had allways a very good experience. I must warn you for the prices that are not affordable for many people but if you can go there you will not regret. Very good food and wide wine list. There is two rooms, one for restaurant and another one... More

Still the best restaurant in Vila Nova de Mil Fontes, but for me lost some of is own charm by being expanded to some extra rooms. The decoration is good and warming. The food is still very well cooked, with a good selection of (expensive) wines. The overall impression is still that it is expensive for what it offers, but... More

Went for a drink after dinner and it was great to visit. Felt like I should return for dinner. Everything seemed to be good. Very nice staff and good location.
