“We think the best restaurant in Albufeira”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Tasca sits on the dock alongside the Marina, under the award winning achitectural and colourful apartments. We visit Albufeira regularly, why do we along with the locals eat at Tasca, simply because the food is brilliant!
The knowledge of the staff the helpfulness and their willingness to go just the extra mile to make sure not only the meal, wine and service is good, but the whole experience of eating there is good too.
If you're unsure about which wine to choose, then I haven't come across any waiter before with such knowledge of his wines.
Whilst we were staying in the marina, for a special occasion we were very lucky to have a choclate cake cooked for us too, it was not too much trouble and wow really good!
Their grilled squid is one of the best I've ever had, their baby cuttlefish hmmmmm!, but steaks too, don't be put off if you're not a fishy lover, they have fabulous meats on the Algarve.
If we want a special meal with our friends, we go to Tasca.

“Good food, nice location, locals seem to use here”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Stumbles across this restaurant by accident when we visited the marina, had a lovely lunch at a reasonable price, nice service too. Offered some nice Authentic Portuguese food, very family friendly. Also local Portuguese people seem to use as well which is also a good sign.

“Great view of marina matched by quality food”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

On a cloudy day we walked out to the marina and enjoyed lunch at this restaurant. Quality fish specials at very reasonable prices. Well worth a visit.

“A good value experience”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

The Marina of Albufeira, designed by Tamas Tavares, is a truly remarkable architectural complex with attractive shops and restaurants. It deserves to be crowded day and night, but regrettably, has been pretty ghostly and deserted during our 4 winter-break visits to the area since 2006. This year (March 2013), we ate in this charming little restaurant for the 2nd time and enjoyed it just as much as we did on the first occasion: rich fluffy omelettes, one shrimp and one mixed cheeses, and a warming Portuguese stew, all washed down by very tasty carafe wines. It is open for long hours and boasts a very varied menu catering for every appetite: big and small; Western and Oriental; meat and vegetarian. The dishes are nicely prepared and don't stint on quantity. Prices are as low as you will find anywhere in the Algarve. The service, I suspect, is probably by family members --civil and cheerful. And for those residing in the nearby Orada Apartments, also built by Tavares, there is a 10% discount with a card you will get from Reception.

“Worth the walk”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Took a stroll out to the marina and settled on this restaurant for lunch. Great pizzas, good service from a friendly waiter and also enjoyed the wine. Sat outside overlooking the marina in glorious sunshine. We walked 6 miles and it was worth it. In fact, it was so good we went back another day just for coffee, which we also enjoyed.
