Description: O Tanque Restaurant is reflective of the best the Algarve has to offer. the restaurant is comfortable, the menu rich with traditional cuisine local produce and pearls from the sea. the results of this fusion is a relaxing meal that will impress. The menu at o Tanque is focused on the best the seas have to offer, You can always count on fresh fish perfect for grilling ,or a selection of shellfish-oysters, clams, mussels, cockles, scallops and some very tradicional dishes such as cataplana or shellfish and beans. you can choose your own lobster or crab from the restaurant´s tank! Meat eaters are not forgotten. House specials like lamb chops, black pork, as well as quality steaks. Dine indoors in the spacious dining room, enjoy a drink on the bar, and in the summer dine outsider on the deck...

our first experience of the Couvert - very nice = although probably would not eat at home. We had a wonderful meal here of Blackened Pork. Restaurant recommended by resort.

A simple and basic restaurant environment supported by great service and sound Portuguese cuisine for a reasonable price. The suckling pig on Thursday evening is a speciality but the portions are large so don't order anything else! We eat here every visit to Portugal and enjoy the down-to-earth setting and straightforward cooking.

I thoroughly recommend this restaurant. True, it's not a looker from the outside (or in, for that matter) but the great, simple food -especially the fresh as can be fish - together with the excellent value it represents in this overpriced part of the value means it stands out from the crowd for me. When we're in Portugal we like to eat local food, not the usual standardised stuff that seems to be everywhere. It must be so tough running a restaurant here at present, with the recession and swingeing 23 per cent VAT, but the staff at O Tanque are just lovely and proud of their product, as they deserve to be. I don't know why it doesn't have a legion of Tripadviser fans, as it should have!

O Tanque is one of the few restaurants in this area that is popular with locals. The reason is that it represents good value for money. It is a simple place that specialises in local food and fish. We enjoyed local meats and cheeses as a starter together with the house Vinho Verde at 4€ for half a litre. This was followed by delicious suckling pig for two of us and an enormous Grouper steak for the third. This was accompanied by two half bottles of Alentejo red and white wines. We were so full that we did not have room for a sweet, but the owner put on the table bottles of Port, Madrinho and Almond liqueur for us to enjoy "on the house". The whole bill for three of us coming to 60€ including the 23% VAT which now applies in Portugal
