Naturally Portuguese cuisine varies from region to region, but fresh fish and shellfish are found on virtually every menu. The national dish is “Bacalhau”- dried, salted cod. The Portuguese has been obsessed with it since the early 16th century, when their fishing boats reached Newfoundland. The sailors salted and sun-dried their catch to make it last the long journey home, and today there are said to be 365 different ways of preparing it, one for each day of the year. The Portuguese word “tasca” describes quaint cafes, bistros or tavernas. These small, well known restaurants are delightful places to eat. Good food is always prepared with love and consummate skill, using the freshest ingredients available. If the quality of some ingredients are not up to standard, they will not be served. At a tasca we prepare each meal from order, so we ask you to be patient and to relax and enjoy your stay with us the Portuguese way… saude !

Craig did his best to be a very wonderful host. His knowledge of the menu was excellent and the rest of the team provided us with a wonderful experience. The food was a Wow !!! and just again,....excellent.
I will definitely visit again.
Warmly welcomed and seated without delay. Service was quick, friendly and attentive. We had starters and mains which were well presented and extremely tasty. Would throughly recommend and will visit again.
Whenever we are entertaining guests who enjoy shellfish we always choose Atasca in Durban North. The ambiance, service and food taste are constantly good. Other Langos, queen prawns and Chicken on a platter to share. Amazing! Try swimming rice which is not a menu item.
