We had Octopus and cod "à Lagareiro", both were delicious. The restaurant was full of locals and the waiter was very helpful with recommending the food and the vinho verde. We were very satisfied with the portion size, and the price was excellent.

My mum and I ordered the seabass. It came presented lovely with one small potato and vegetables (spinach and a small carrot) plus small salad. Was delicious but was hungry afterwards. A choice of three very rich desserts. Tiramisu was nice but I couldn't eat any as all three too creamy for my liking so declined. A shame no fruit... More

Good, local and regional food can be enjoyed here and if you visit on a Friday there's usually live music - very traditional and taken quite seriously by both the performers and the locals. You will probably need to book and it makes for a most interesting evening.

A side trip into Faro and we lucked into this place. Good reviews on google. HUGE portion for lunch for both of us just before closing at 3 and we got to dine outside in the courtyard under trees. Close to attractive walking and shopping area in old town.

Helpful, friendly service with accurate but not pushy advice. Wide selection of dishes with a local bias.
