“Freshest seafood, great service, lots of fun”
Review of Taska do Xico

Taska do Xico
Ranked #1 of 27 Restaurants in Porto Covo
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

This restaurant is perched high above an inlet and the veranda has gorgeous views over the ocean. If you are lucky enough to get a seat on the veranda you can watch the food being cooked over coals. Menu had the usual Bacalau plus lots of fresh local fish. Dorada, Rabalo, Pregada, shrimp, crabs, clams, octopus. Everything we had was perfectly cooked with vegetables and salads. We ran into friends from across the world and the owner moved tables so we could sit together before we could ask! Suggest booking a table as it is really popular.

We went here following the visit to another restaurant for some clams and the owner recommended we visited this place instead. We weren’t not disappointed by this place at all. The service was very nice despite being very busy, the food was delicious and the cost was not high. We would definitely recommend.

I was there with my boyfriend who is portuguiese and know better how it normally is. I took « bacalhao a braz » which is known everywhere in Portugal and when the plate arrived, there was only crisps and eggs... basically no fish inside. When we noticed it to the waiter, nothing happened. Our 2 coffees where also burned and the quality of the coffee was bad. For sure they take profit of the tourists during summer....

Best Portuguese food I have ever had!
The octopus is a must have. Everything we had was unbelievably good.

Tried to book at 2pm for dinner. "Do you have table on the ouside balcony?" Very friendly reply: " we will try but no promises. You need to arrive at 7.45pm tops". Roger!

We arrived at 7.45 and a very friendly and comprehensive owner apologize for having screwdup 2 reservations. No worries, they offered a free beer and we waited for 15minutes.
Worth it all the way. The staff is very friendly and joyfull regardless of the mess and business of the place.
The food is excelent and the fresh fish (always ask for recommendation) is 5star.

Overall this is a 6 star place with everything from the service, kindness, outside view, food above the average. Just the price is on the average
