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...

Good authentic food and service. Wine well priced and good selection. Good selection of fresh fish but meats fab too. Then...... after our meal we went to sit on comfy sofas as we were so stuffed and they bring over a selection of liqueurs to help yourself to! Absolutely stunning. Can't say more just go there!

In an area where restaurants open and close with startling regularity O Tanque has traded for nearly twenty years under the same ownership and survived by being consistantly good value , serving well cooked and presented food. Specialising with daily fresh fish the menu also offers a full range of meat and other specialities so you will always find something to your taste. The wine list is good and very reasonable

The restaurant situated on the road to the Val da Lobo complex is large and typically decorated, with outdoor seating and a large car park. The friendly owners take a personal interest in all customers and the staff are pleasant and helpful and english speaking. Go along and enjoy!

We have been coming to this part of the Algarve for more than thirty years and never visited this restaurant. What a lovely surprise to do so recently simply on a whim!
Veni Vidi Vici!
Great food,fine fare and reasonably priced for what must rank as one of the undiscovered -for us at least- gourmet secrets of the Golden Triangle!

Had lunch here. Good, friendly service and good food. Had a delicious roasted chicken and clam dish. Loads of fish specials on the board we would have tried on another visit. Kids loved the homemade sausage 'starter' dish they brought out with the usual bread and olives. Casual enough, perhaps more a lunch than dinner place?
