The vibe, the service, the food were, of course, delicious. But the hot sausage, hand made in a small town outside of Porto, was a true food moment. Go. Eat. Enjoy (but make a reservation!).

We had dinner for 6 on Friday evening last week, which was our last day of our stay in Carvoeiro. Contrary to many other reviews we did not think that it was very special. If everyone is so lyric, you would expect the place to be fully booked but the place was rather quiet, Bread and butter were served and... More

We had diner there on our last night in Carvoeiro. Nice food, friendly waitress, good selection of wine. We went on a saturday and it was empty while the rest of the town seemed busy... Not sure why as the food was perfect. Would go again definately.

We went totally in Tripadvisor recommendations with this place. The review that scored it as "poor" needs their heads read. We loved this pace. My husband said it was the best steak he has had in a long time and my monkfish curry was delicious. Sanders and Sandra the owners were both so helpful and obliging at all times and... More

Ate here yesterday & were baffled by the lack of people enjoying the excellent food being served. Having visited this restaurant for the last 12 years the quality of food (and price) was as good as ever & we'd recommend O Tasco to anybody, we'll definitely be back before we go home.

I visited this restaurant for an evening meal and was delighted I had. No plastic tables and sticky tablecloths in sight! A beautiful restaurant: everything was spotless and Sander and his wife, Sandra, made me very welcome. They interacted with their guests but didn't pressurise them. The food was beautiful and filling and reasonably priced. Service was prompt and friendly.... More

We try to visit Sander & Sandra's restaurant each time we visit the Algarve. Situated at the top of the Estrada do Farol, so often a little quieter and no long wait for for your meal. The food is always excellent and Sander and his wife Sandra are charming and friendly. We really would recommend you try it.

Eaten here many times now and frequent when possible. Always a place to take guests and family. Sanders the owner/waiter is always more than happy to explain the specials and always supplies the freshest fish. I love the asparagus and boiled egg with smoked salmon but am also partial to homemade tomatoe soup with a poached egg. I had the... More
