Great service, lovely food, and the portions are just about right. What more do you want. Oh and they serve Super Bock beer. How can you go wrong!

Last day before flying home. Visited Faro which seemed a nice city apart from the pouring rain or what? Anyway we found a very nice restaurant located near the city centre. Had a very tasty lunch. Staff very freindly and food well cooked. Typically Portuguese.

Everything perfect, especially our waiter Dareu! Catered to every diner and profiled our tastes recommending perfect choices for us. Designed a customized paella for my husband...delicious! Spare ribs were awesome. Huge portions and much more than a seafood restaurant, though people at next table thoroughly enjoyed their seafood platter consisting of fish, shrimp, and octopus. Ate twice, once for lunch... More

We had hoped to listen to a Fado performance while in Porto but could not get reservations. At the end of our holiday a couple of days before flying out we decided to try and find somewhere; a) to eat and b) that had Fado. After searching online we decided on Restaurante Centenario. We knew nothing about it but, what... More

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
