There were several tables left when we entered this joint at about 8PM. A waitress came over with a menu and I tried to have a friendly chit-chat, informing her with a smile that we unfortunatelly had a meal elsewhere recently but we would love to order some coffee, desserts, perhaps some wine. She pulled a long face at us... More

A friend recommended Taberna Tosca to us and we just loved it. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is great and the staff, Anna, in particular, made our visit even more special. Can't wait to go back.

A friend recommended this place to us and it was very good. Great atmosphere. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We chose to eat inside but patio seating was available across the street in the park. We ordered the garlic prawns, cod pancakes and the potatoes in garlic. The chorizo was great too. These dishes are considered tapas but... More

We were in a large group of almost 50 people celebrating our mothers 60th birthday, we had the place privately reserved from 10.30pm, as this was quite late the owner of the restaurant had said we could have use of the bar just next door for 1 hour before, also owned by the restaurant, this seemed like the perfect compromise....

Having read the reviews this looked like a place we must eat so we set off to find it, we sat at lovely table outside and ordered up a number of dishes. Unfortunately we both found the food to be uninspiring and tasteless and we just wanted to leave, sorry Taberna Tosca a bit of chewy steak in a gravy... More

Pleasant restaurant with outdoor tables located in São Paulo square. We had four different small dishes: great octopus salad, delicious Carne de Alguidar (extra tender pork meat with sauce), excelent pataniscas de bacalhau (fried bits of codfish potatoes and onios in batter) and a cucumber and tomato salad. Good wine (vinho verde) suggested by our waitress. We finished with the... More

My friends and I decided to go out for a tapas night. We ended up in this nice setting in Taberna Tosca and we ordered a first round of tapas (5 for 3 people). The wine was excellent and the food was unbelievably amazing that we could not help but order a second round of tapas!!! You need, at least... More
