“Nice place”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

My partner and I went to this restaurant after seeing the reviews on trip advisor. We got a lovely set of pate, bread and olives to start (free of charge), and we both had steak for our main. The food was fine, not the best steak iv had; it was quite fatty to be honest, but cooked nicely. We then had lemon sorbet for after, a bottle of wine and glass of port and it all came to around €40 which is a bargain. I wouldn't say it is the best restaurant in viana but for the price and good service it is well worth a visit!

“What a find!!!”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

I have lived in Viana do Castelo for over 18 years and this is the first time I have ever recommended a restaurant! The Tasquinha is a small family-run business offering fabulous local cuisine using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Both the food and the service is excellent. The added bonus is the fastest internet I have found anywhere in the world.

“Top quality Portuguese cuisine”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

This small restaurant is located on the somewhat sterile Plaça da Liberdade, in one of the new, low, squarish buildings on the waterfront. Inside, the furnishing is bright and friendly, neat and tidy. The menu is the usual simple Portuguese fare and, at first glance, seems to offer nothing special. We had dinner there one rainy Sunday evening when most other restaurants were closed and the Portuguese were glued to the TV watching local election results. As the only couple in the restaurant we enjoyed the undivided (apart from the election results) attention of the owner and his crew of three staff. We skipped the starter and feasted instead on the excellent bread selection, the tasty tuna spread provided and the deliciously marinated olives. The wine was well chilled and the main dish, when it came, was served with great care on a large, glazed earthenware platter, with preheated plates to match. The owner even did a little of the preliminary surgery to free the spine of the fish, a beautifully cooked and presented sea bass. The fish was accompanied by well cooked broccoli, roasted potatoes and garlic flavoured hot olive oil. The combination was really quite wonderful. We finished with homemade desserts of crème caramel and crème brulée, followed by a free glass of Port and two good, strong espressos. Perfect! We were very happy to pay 51 Euros for this great meal for two.
