Authentic Portuguese cuisine served in generous portions in a typically Algarvian setting. Delicious fish & unbelievable chicken, the service was the best part of all, well, other than the yummy complementary local liqueurs at the end! Definitely a new favorite for me!

Went for dinner. Good service and food. I had mussels followed by Portuguese steak. most of our party had fish which I think would have been a better choice but still good. Would certainly recommend.

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...
