“Good Portuguese food”
Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

Good Portuguese food, fantastic decoration but the service it's very slow.

We went with 3 childs and we had to wait 20 minutes to receive the menu, and they only came because we ask for.

The food and the decoration should have a better service.

We recomend if you don't take childs with you and have time to wait.

“Great food but expensive and slow service”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Tasca do Celso is probably the best well known restaurant in Vila Nova de Milfontes but there's certainly room for improvement. The food is really good (starters, main courses, deserts, etc.) but a bit overpriced. Expect to pay 50€ per person which for both the region and the overall quality is too much. The service is also slow. I don't mind waiting 30-45 minutes for the main course if the starters are in the table after 5 or 10 minutes. Ours took a good 20-25 minutes to get to the table. Go there at least once for the experience. Also, arrive there early for dinner. Best time is before 8pm.

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Probably the only regional nice restaurant in VN Milfontes. Great food and wine selection and a very nice atmosphere.
There are great appetizers to start with, I had the scrambled eggs with "linguiça" and then had the "cataplana"(cooked in a copper pot) with pork and clams that was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The wine list is huge and you can probably choose the best wines from north to south of Portugal. To end the meal I got a "sericaia" desert that was very good and sweet, very fresh. The prices are a bit high but it's worth it. The service is OK but a bit slow. I recommend that you book in advance or you will probably get disappointed.
