Although it serves a great variety of regional food, it is most famous for the 'Xerém', a moorish-influenced dish (Zerem) made with corn flour and enriched with clams. Not the cheapest place around but it is very central and a great choice for good regional food if you're trying to escape the high-street (Santo António Street) touristy options.

We ordered fillet steak with peppercorn sauce and chips.A bit of a mistake as this restaurant are serving a large amount of Chrisps all around the steak and as the Americans, call Chrisps chips.The steak was nice and tender.The wine was good.The staff very friendly.

Nice little restaurant with great service and good food. The young lad working as the waiter was great and all in all I would have no hesitation in returning.

I had Algarve carrots to start - I have had these elsewhere and enjoyed them very much and they were in good olive oil. Here the carrots were freezing cold out of the fridge and watery. As a main course I had 'bean clams' on xarem which is like grits. The clams were very small which did not matter but... More

Lovely people, lovely place. Near the city centre serving fine local food. Highly recommended. Some unusual dishes. I had the streak fish but have no idea what it was. Nice though!

Great staff, food and prices! I definitely recommend this if you want to try real Portuguese food. We had the fried octopus and it was great.

Very good typical restaurant in Faro with traditional disthes. The arroz de lingueirão was excellent. It's a must here. The staff is very kind.

Happened upon this place. A bit hot and lack of air conditioning. However, food was good and plentiful. We had couvert, gaspacho, salada de polvo, xarem rico and bife da vitela mains. Too much food...a happy complaint. Actually, no complaints. Very good and enjoyed the meal. 3 courses water, wine and coffee for €40 for 2 people. Obrigado.

Happened on Taska by accident when the place we were actually heading was closed. Excellent discovery. Wonderful Algarvian food in a friendly setting. Great staff. Starter of Algarve version of Gazpacho was delicious followed by xarém with clams & prawns. Fab! Place filled up over time. Portions generous, and had the feel of home cooking. Very good home cooking though!... More
