My husband and I were desperate to go to a typical Portuguese restaurant away from the generic and expensive Marina restaurants! After looking on TA we decided to visit this amazing small restaurant. We were welcomed by a friendly waiter who assisted us with what tapas to order and which wine to have. The food was delicious, the service was great and the price was very affordable. We will be going back before we return to the UK!

We come to this lost gem in Vilamoura and found the real tasty typical Portuguese food.
To all the staff, specially the English young lady, thanks for the warm welcome.
This is for shore the true Portuguese Kitchen with the best levels ever presented.
Portuguese prices and Portuguese food...magnificent!
Will come back again.
Will recommend to all.

First time we got there we were served by the cook, a big bearded man obviously passionate about his job and the local flavors. He was great at recommending the best, fresh, local tapas and gave us some samples of other dishes he thought we would like!

We got there a second time and those who I think were the owners were managing the room, and dishes were still as good but service was a bit colder.

Still a place I would surely recommend over the touristic marina restaurants!

The food at this tapas bar is to die for. The choice is amazing. Extremely good value for lunch, but open till well into the evening. Lovely friendly English waitress and a new waitress from Moldova who is delightful and very pleasant. The wines are very good. The tapas bar lies just behind the marina in the street near the taxi rank. Give this a try it is a must. We will be back on our return to Vilamoura

My partner and I recently spent some quiet relaxing time in Vilamoura. We were not impressed by the recommendations our hotel gave us for restaurants as most of them were not Portuguese at all. Since we really wanted to only eat authentic Portuguese food, we looked for a place by ourselves. We stumbled upon A Taberna Casa de Petiscos and our experience there was so great we ended up eating there every single day of our trip. The small dishes were wonderfully tasty and the manager explained the dishes to us so well it really whet our appetites! We got to enjoy lovely meals and drink some really nice Portuguese wines too. And best of all, it is really good value! Why going all the way to Portugal and eat Chinese, Indian, Italian or French food and drink at an Irish pub, when you can get such a wonderful experience in a real Portuguese restaurant with a great atmosphere!! This is what holidays are about, be curious about the local food!!
