A must 'do' visit in Olhao. Nice little place. Food really good. Book to avoid disappointment. We managed to get the last table. In the alley, a bit breezey but blankets provided if required. Server was attentive.

In our recent holiday we dined at this restaurant three times and all were excellent- I don't really understand some of the negative reviews recently because that wasn't our experience but as we had our daughter (11 years) with us so we do eat earlier in the evening than may be the norm out here. So maybe that's why? What... More

found this restaurant last november but unfortunately they were closed for holidays. Managed to get a booking last week and we were absolutely thrilled. A little bit small although we had a great corner seat. The food is excellent, especially the beetroot pate. ! Staff were excellent and very helpful. We shall return in the Autumn. !

My partner and I arrived full of high spirits after ready the reviews on Trip Advisor. We sat outside as the inside was already full(a good sign). The waiter came to take our order and seemed somewhat distant and didn't seem to know the answer to any question asked("Do you serve Sangria by the glass?"). It wasn't until he took... More

We dined in this restaurant twice in the Spring of 2016 and enjoyed the experience. However, this year, despite the fact that we had reserved a table, it was an hour after being seated that our order finally arrived: mine a little dish of clams cooked in olive oil and perhaps wine which was far too salty, accompanied by pallid...

First night of holiday, tipping it down with rain, where to go but the nearest restaurant! Tried four others the next four nights but went back to Tasca o Galo for the last two which says it all. This is a very homely and cosy small restaurant (we were lucky to get a table the second time) with an unusual... More

Really glad to see this place is still doing so well. We ate here quite a while back, not knowing anything about it, and were astounded by how good the food was. We had an incredible cataplana with black rice that we still talk about. Somehow I was certain we'd left a review, but apparently we forgot to do so...... More

While staying in Olhao we visited this restaurant after reading the reviews. What a great find. Lovely atmosphere and great staff. Menu had a nice selection. Both our main courses were superb. Make sure you leave room for puds, home made and very nice! Good choice of wines to suit all pockets. Will definitely return when next in Olhao.

Tucked away in an alley, this is a truly wonderful restaurant. The family feel and high quality food were exceptional. Catered well for a relatively large group at short notice. Would recommend!
