Too expensive for the food you get. The idea is to have a big assorted menu but in favt foid is quite simple. The restaurant has some fame but it does not meet the expectations versus what you pay. I recomend more Pateo Alentejano for really tipical Alentejo Food.

The food was amazing. The clams rice (arroz de ameijôa) is by far the best we've had in a long time. The desert siricaia was baked to perfection. Staff were really welcoming and chatty. The vibe inside it's a criss cross between old and new and the good old Miles Davis in the background topped the whole experience.

Tasca do Celso doesn't need much more reviews. Every summer it's a regular in several magazines and listings of supposedly hidden gems of the Alentejo Coast. If you want to have a taste of the best Alentejo's flavors, Tasca do Celso is a place to go. If you're in to meet, you can't miss the "Bife a la plancha" for... More

Friendly and professional staff, amazing food. I was disappointed with their first choice of wine (a very young 2015 alentejo wine) and olive oil.

It's a very typical regional restaurant with great service and excellent atmosphere. The food was amazing, although a bit expensive. Totally worth it! Be careful, you should come early or make a reserve.

The place is unexpectedly pleasant . As you get in, it looks quite basic but they did a good job in order to make it cozy and overall attractive. Service is attentive and food is good but not exceptional as everybody seems to believe.

Not up to the expectation... The food was ok, the staff was ok and the price to high... There are better options to eat in the same region ;)

Perfect food! Simple, traditional and really really good. "Modern Rustic" environment. A must in Vila Nova. The giant prawns with "açorda" were delicious, but the clams rice was definitely the highlight! So good I could ear there every day!
