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.

Our first restaurant we visited. Raised the bar. Had a lovely filling monkfish kebab. Staff are friendly and you're made to feel at home. Enjoyed it so much visited again the next day, again food and service was equally as good.

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.

Went here with my family of seven, including my 1,5 year old son. The staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. We all had fish and it was really good, my son had the chicken and both him and us grownups thought it was excellent. Highly recommended fish restaurant that also serves good meat.

Food reasonable, staff a bit surly, indoor or outdoor eating, indoor has Fado singing some nights. Prices a little bit more than neighbours, but didn't impress.

My vegan hamburger came with a salad with one slice of tomato which tasted bad, it think it was rotten. The vegan burger was one of those frozen patties that are deep fried to deliver the taste of fried "stuff". Served with fried chips, of course. And a slice of rotten tomato. In short, terrible food, ok service.

Excellent service, quick, efficient, quadrilingual. Best fish I've eaten during my stay in Faro, just light years ahead from the other restaurants. Soft, creamy, tasty, they know how to cook fish. I recommended the Salmon with Prawn sauce, excellent. PS: they have Fado on Fridays
