Fodor's Expert Review Tasca do Joel
Tucked away on a side street far from the touristy seafront, this tavern attracts diners from far and wide with delicious fresh fish and meat dishes cooked in its wood-burning oven. There are changing daily specials, but regular dishes include bacalhau à tasca (fried codfish with onions and potatoes), rice-stuffed cuttlefish, and baked pumpkin risotto.
