A Tasca do Kiko has some of the best tapas in the Algarve. Situated right behind the boatyard in Lagos, this place is amazing. You’d never guess from the outside that this little restaurant is a haven for food lovers everywhere.
We had lunch there with friends last weekend and had the most sumptuous meal between us. Choosing items from the tapas menu, we thoroughly enjoyed every last bite. Some of the deliciousness on offer included the most enormous mussels, octopus salad, squid, lamb meatballs, goats cheese salad, garlic mushrooms, fish cakes and more. I washed mine down with a refreshing glass of white wine while my companions stuck with soft drinks, followed by a couple of desserts – carob and sweet potato tart (mmmmmm) and a couple of scoops of ice cream, then coffee! We paid about 85 euros for it all. Not bad for the four of us, considering how blooming delicious it all was.
We also visited A Tasca do Kiko last June for our wedding anniversary and it was equally good then too. I’m so glad we found this place – it really is one of Lagos’ best-kept secrets. Well, not anymore! Apparently, with the summer coming up, it’s a good idea to book a table before heading over there, so if you do fancy a totally fabulous lunch, give them a ring and reserve your spot now. Find them on TripAdvisor. You won’t be disappointed!
Oh, and because it’s located right behind the boatyard, it’s really lovely getting to see some boats up close and personal!
