About
Naturally Portuguese cuisine varies from region to region, but fresh fish and shellfish are found on virtually every menu. The national dish is “Bacalhau”- dried, salted cod. The Portuguese has been obsessed with it since the early 16th century, when their fishing boats reached Newfoundland. The sailors salted and sun-dried their catch to make it last the long journey home, and today there are said to be 365 different ways of preparing it, one for each day of the year. The Portuguese word “tasca” describes quaint cafes, bistros or tavernas. These small, well known restaurants are delightful places to eat. Good food is always prepared with love and consummate skill, using the freshest ingredients

CRAIG was a great waiter. Suggested the chicken and prawn special and it was delicious. Roll was fresh and finished before the meal! all the flavours complemented one another and everything was cooked to perfection. Highly recommended!

I have not been here for a while, which I greatly regret. The restaurant has grown and I like the improvements made since. Service is crisp and our waitron was well trained, which is what one would expect of a top restaurant. There is a...wide choice of dishes and also a special lunch menu which is really good value for money. Good food, friendly service at a reasonable price = happy customer! We will be back!More

Hi, the chicken is sourced from a Halaal supplier, however as we serve alcohol in our restaurants we would never qualify for Halaal certification.
