“Friendly place to taste portuguese plates”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

It's a casual restaurant of 'petiscos' (Portuguese tapas) with a very friendly staff and great food.
The place has a worm environment, perfect to enjoy a talk with wine on the side.

“Easily the best dining experience in Porto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

My friends and I (8 in total), habing read the excellent reviews here on TripAdvisor, decided to visit Tascö for our last night (and meal) in Porto. Arriving somewhat late and with a large group, they weren't able to seat us right away, but the very friendly staff arranged seating for us an hour later. As many others have mentioned, the service is superb and extremely friendly. Since two in our group spoke portuguese, we ordered through them, but the staff were all very capable of speaking english (as well as french and spanish).

They offer both regular dishes to be eaten individually as well as tapas-style dishes, which is what we had. We had the bacalhau with chickpea, the tripes (particularly recommended), the pica pau, the mixed sausages and another saucy pork-dish. Alongside these, you can order a variety of side-dishes, such as chips, crushed potatoes, salad, and rice. We all agreed that the food was some of the best we had on our trip, rivaled perhaps only by the seafood we had in Matosinhos. After a hearty meal, we all had the delicious apple pie with ice cream, accompanied by a nice glass of port wine.

The total came to about 20€ each, which made it the most expensive meal we'd had in Porto, but it was most definitely worth it, not only for the food, but also for the superb atmosphere!

“They invite you into their home/restaurant”

The owners show a definite interest in their food as well as their customers. The tapas were delicious and let's not forget the Portugese wine.

“welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

I stumbled upon this place after a long hot day, hungry and tired. The staff is very friendly, hospitable, and speaks English! I quickly got some tasty food and a big glass of wine, and could watch the World Cup game on the cushioned stairs with more wine. As I am visiting Porto alone for work, it was nice to feel comfortable and welcome!

“A great find an excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

We found this restaurant down a side street from our hotel after checking the area on Tripadvisor.

We were not disappointed the guy who welcomed us and served us at the table was really friendly and helpful. The meal was a delight and the accompanying wine was too. The owners presents the food as if it were from her home kitchen. You cannot leave without trying the chocolate mouse - my wife thought is was really out of this world and so was the home made ice cream which I tucked into.

If you are in Porto seek out this little establishment you will not be disappointed.
