A cosy restuarant catering for a variety of tastes. Prices are very affordable. While we visited on a weekday and the restuarant was not very busy, we were assured that the ingreidents were fresh. The service was excellent.

Vibrant buzzing atmosphere; great variety of dishes; succulent flavours; more than generus portions ... are you with me so far ? Add to this the type of tip top service that is often so hard to find these days ... and you have a winner....More

The Portuguese word "tasca" describes quaint cafes, bistros or tavernas. These small, well known restaurants are delightful places to eat at. Good food is always prepared with love and consummate skill, using the freshest ingredients available. If the quality of some ingredients are not up to standard, they will not be served. At Atasca we prepare each meal from order, so we ask you to be patient and to relax and enjoy your stay with us the Portuguese way .... Saude!
