We came upon this restaurant accidently when we couldn't find the one we were looking for. It was almost 2 pm and most restaurants close between lunch and dinner. But we were lucky and we got the last table. The restaurant is operated by Manuel and Carolina, a husband and wife team. He greets guests and waits tables and she cooks. Also, the tasquinha is small with only 5 or 6 tables - so, if possible, I highly recommend making a reservation. Since we don't speak or read Portuguese, Manuel suggested that we allow him to choose the food for us. We started with some antipasti in small plates - olives, cheese, peppers, etc. Then we moved on to 2 or 3 other dishes. Just when we thought we were full, Manuel brought us "the main course." I can't tell you exactly what it was, but it was fabulous - just like every other dish that we ate. Of course, we also had a bottle of wine that Manuel recommended. When we were stuffed and couldn't eat any more we asked for the check, expecting it to be very high. However, we were very pleasantly surprised to find that the total bill was 100Euros for the two of us. I have had meals for twice this much that weren't half as good. I HIGHLY recommend Tasquinha D'Oliviera.
