Celso always delivers. Great risotto type rices, seafood stews, grilled fish (especially seared sarrajão tuna when available), black iberian pork and salads. Unique atmosphere with wine barrels for bar stools, rustic stone and wood finishes all with a sophisticated result. You will not be disappointed. Make a reservation.

Back in the old days in Portugal a "tasca" was a bit of a dive, a local bar for the working man. Celso is far away from that. It's got an inviting bar area just off the street (which is not itself an obvious place for a restaurant of this quality) and beyond that a modern airy and inviting dining... More

My husband had the black pork steak and I had the tuna. We loved our choices, both meals were more than enough food and the lime and basil mousse afterwards was exceptional and, for me, a new combination of flavours

My husband and I dined at Tasco Do Celso on our third night in Portugal. The impeccable service began the moment we arrived. We had our best meal so far. For starters we snacked on the black sausage which was delicious. I had the pork and clams... a tasty regional dish which was prepared and presented beautifully. My husband ordered... More

We spent two nights in Vila Nova de Milfontes and had dinner at Tasca de Celso on both nights as we enjoyed it so much! The first night we shared an appetizer of Prawns a l'ajillo and for the main we had Fish of the day with beautiful zucchini and sweet potatoes. Our waiter recommended us a delicious Vinho verde...

Recommended by reception of our guest house. It is in a street currently dug up, it is unassuming from the outside but like a maze on the inside. Very busy but we got a table. Waiter was helpful and offered English menu but we managed without. The part of the restaurant we were in you can watch the food being... More

We had promised that we would start our third visit to the region with a meal out and arriving on Good Friday glad that we had booked. The restaurant is very charming with three distinctive rooms. The staff are very good and we choose off the menu with a starter and then a sharing main course plate. The waiter advised... More

Great fish at reasonable prices. Outstanding wine list at modest prices. Friendly service despite being VERY busy on a Sunday lunchtime in April. The position is nothing to write home about in a quiet back street, but very well worth a visit.

We walked to this restaurant and found the whole street was torn up, blocked with heavy equipment and workmen. Not a great beginning. Then we finally found the inauspicious entrance, walked in without a reservation on a Tuesday night about 6:45pm, not knowing they didn't open until 7:30pm. We hadn't thought it would be a problem but wow, they were... More

We ate here with our hiking tour group and were impressed with the ambiance and expertly prepared Portuguese cuisine. The mixed green salad with fresh cheese, bread salad, black pork, sea bass, and seared tuna were truly amazing, and followed by equally amazing desserts. We were so impressed that we returned the next night, reordered most of the same dishes,... More
