Tried this at Easter for the first time and have visited again twice this week. We are new to Sushi and the staff have been brilliant on every visit helping with our selections. I would recommend the Salmon Skin Sushi and also the Salmon, Mango and Cream Cheese Dragon Sushi.
What is great is that the cost of both the food and drink is very reasonable and the quality of the food is absolutely brilliant. It has a fantastic location on the Marina too. It is always busy which is a good sign.
Downsides: it is in a terrace of restaurants and between the restaurants are glass walls so you can see into the other restaurants and vice versa. I quite like this because it adds to the atmosphere but I could see others not liking it.
Whilst this isn't the best restaurant in the Marina in terms of ambiance and setting it certainly is up there as one of our best for food quality and top for value.

We had a very nice dinner at Takô. It has a nice atmosphere and the food is irrepreensible. The sashimi was great, very good portions and innovative plates. Don't forget to try the green tea brownie!

We tried this restaurant for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised. We ordered salmon maki, salmon skin rolls and toro nigiri (we aren't very adventurous with our taste).

The sushi was just excellent, tasted really fresh and it melts in your mouth. The toro was very creamy and was very pleasant. The portions were quite big and I had trouble eating a mouthful. As for hot food, we ordered the teppanyaki. It came in a nice hot place served with some vegetables.

The restaurant also offers a take-away service. We were so pleased with the sushi that we came back a few hours later to bring some home. The servers were friendly and even recognized us on our return. The restaurant does get very crowded at night, luckily we came early (7) and we were one of the few people eating. Sadly, they had run out of the toro and we had to settle for extra salmon sushi.

My family and I go to Takô every year when visiting Vilamoura. The food is great, quite expensive, but very tasteful. They serve lots of vegetarian food, not just one dish like the other marina restaurants, and the vegetarian sushi is just as awesome as the regular sushi.
Definitely worth a visit.

We wanted hot food so gave the sushi a miss which was probably a mistake. We ordered a rice dish, a noodle dish and the Japanese curry. The portions were big but the food was nothing special and less tasty than what we are used to. The curry sauce could have come straight out of a jar - it tasted exactly like a curry you might get in a pub in the UK - nice, but not Japanese. That was the problem - it didn't really resemble Japanese food.

The house wine was not very nice.

Still, it was perfectly edible but I suspect this restaurant is better at the sushi?

Service was friendly and the ambience was good.
