A Tasca is right next to the harbor. We were staying at the Meemo Baileeria Hotel, which is right next to the restaurant. It's a very fun atmosphere with mosaics and old bottles on the walls. There is a large tank with crabs, lobsters, and crayfish when you first come in.
The service was a bit slow, but you are in the Algarve and have time to relax. We ordered the prawns and the hamburger. The prawns were massive. They give you a skewer with about 7. They are each about the size of your hand. There is lots of lemon and peppers. It was a delicious dish. It comes with a salad. The hamburger didn’t have a bun, which we thought was odd. It was ok. The fries were not seasoned, but you can ask for salt.
Since we stayed at the hotel, they gave us a free dessert. It was St. Vincent's pudding or something like that. A little weird, but had a caramel flavor.
All in all, a nice atmosphere. I'd say go with seafood and you won’t be disappointed.
