“FAR ABOVE THE AVERAGE !”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

In an area where restaurants open and close with startling regularity O Tanque has traded for nearly twenty years under the same ownership and survived by being consistantly good value , serving well cooked and presented food. Specialising with daily fresh fish the menu also offers a full range of meat and other specialities so you will always find something to your taste. The wine list is good and very reasonable

The restaurant situated on the road to the Val da Lobo complex is large and typically decorated, with outdoor seating and a large car park. The friendly owners take a personal interest in all customers and the staff are pleasant and helpful and english speaking. Go along and enjoy!

“A surprise ”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

We have been coming to this part of the Algarve for more than thirty years and never visited this restaurant. What a lovely surprise to do so recently simply on a whim!
Veni Vidi Vici!
Great food,fine fare and reasonably priced for what must rank as one of the undiscovered -for us at least- gourmet secrets of the Golden Triangle!

“Good lunch”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Had lunch here. Good, friendly service and good food. Had a delicious roasted chicken and clam dish. Loads of fish specials on the board we would have tried on another visit. Kids loved the homemade sausage 'starter' dish they brought out with the usual bread and olives. Casual enough, perhaps more a lunch than dinner place?

“Totally authentic”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

A perfect experience. Good local food. Served by a magnificent lady who looks after her guests as if they were her own family. We felt privileged to partake in all the local delicacies . Fish was perfect as was the lamb chops and steak. No fault. A must. Thank you.
