My wife and i had walked past here for a few nights and so thought we would give it a try.The restaurant was quiet and the waiters were attentive but not overpowering.I had the pork and chips which was nice [although had sprouts added to the side veg!!} my wife only wanted a feta salad,she enjoyed it and it was nicely presented.What we liked about this restaurant is that no couverts or add ons were pushed at us unlike most of the other restaurants,they only gave them if you asked.Not a fantastic restaurant but adequate and got the job done!!!!

We had dinner for 6 on Friday evening last week, which was our last day of our stay in Carvoeiro. Contrary to many other reviews we did not think that it was very special. If everyone is so lyric, you would expect the place to be fully booked but the place was rather quiet,
Bread and butter were served and were very nice. I had mussels as a starter, which were very big but less tender than I had them before at many other times. Someone ordered flambered prawns which dish appeared a risk for getting your fingers burned and could not be eaten for 10 minutes although the flames had died well before serving to the table.
As a main course we had cataplana of pork and prawns for 4 persons. Again very big in size and quantity of food, but the pork was not the most tender meat we have had. Meat of the monkfish skewer was also a bit dryish. New cutlery was provided in a bit casual way and only one panna cotta was available for dessert. We would rate O Tasco as good at best but nothing special. You can find better places with better value for your money in Carvoeiro.

We had diner there on our last night in Carvoeiro. Nice food, friendly waitress, good selection of wine. We went on a saturday and it was empty while the rest of the town seemed busy... Not sure why as the food was perfect. Would go again definately.

We went totally in Tripadvisor recommendations with this place. The review that scored it as "poor" needs their heads read. We loved this pace. My husband said it was the best steak he has had in a long time and my monkfish curry was delicious. Sanders and Sandra the owners were both so helpful and obliging at all times and took the time to talk to us about Portugal and the restaurant itself. Sanders then told us unfortunately he has to give up the place due to no longer having the lease from Oct onwards, also the chef is leaving to so hopefully sanders new venture will take on the same standards the O Tasco's has. Also some telephone numbers on advertising for the place are incorrect so perceiver when looking for an alternate one. Sorry I don't have it to hand.

Ate here yesterday & were baffled by the lack of people enjoying the excellent food being served. Having visited this restaurant for the last 12 years the quality of food (and price) was as good as ever & we'd recommend O Tasco to anybody, we'll definitely be back before we go home.
