Very Nice place to go to! We had a lovely diner and the service was great. A lot of wines to choose from and the atmosphere was warm & cosy. It really feels like home.

Very nice spot in Milfontes, a lot to choose from the menu, great food, should be nice to have a sommelier to help with so many wine references. Good service too.

We made a reservation for 19:30 and thus were the first couple. This meant that the staff had time to explain things to us. We went to their fish display and ended up with 2 dishes that weren't on the English menu - monkfish and shrimp skewer with mixed vegetables and fillets of a big fish with tomato rice both... More

We arrived early, but with no reservation and they still managed a table for two in a busy Friday night. The food is traditional and really good. If "Sarrajão au Dijon" is on the menu you must try it. It's a contemporary fish dish, unexpected at this traditional restaurant, but I would go back and eat it again, and again.... More

On recent visit to Vila Nova de Milfontes had dinner in this restaurant. Food and wine were really very good. Great flavours and well cooked meals. The only disappointment were the staff who were not friendly and standoff. Would certainly return for the food but please guys could we lighten up a bit and a friendly smile would go a... More

Enjoyed several meals at this comfortable spot. Fresh and well cooked seafood. Intriguing Alentejano specialties. Very friendly service. Superior wine list - so many Portuguese bottles to try.

Went to this restaurnat expecting a good meal/experince. Food was good but the service was poor in general. Interval between starter and mains way too long. Items in the bill that did not come to the table.

We tried going to Tasca do Celso on a previous trip, however we didn't book and it was impossible to get a table that time. This time we went to lunch there early and we got a table without any reservation required. The food is fantastic, and a great representation of traditional regional Alentenjo's cuisine done well. The portions are... More
