Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Amazing cataplanas! So fresh and delicious. The mussels and razor clams were divine. The cataplana with pork and clams is a must. And try the sangria! Definitely the best place for seafood in Faro!

Based on strength of reviews, we went to ze ze and was not disappointed. A very warm welcome, house white was delicious and €14 a bottle, with the usual bread and olive entrees. Plus I had the pate which was a nice little seafoody starter....We had the squid cataplana and I was hungry after a day of travelling. When it came out it was stuffed with clams squid, drenched potatoes and breads plus 4 massive prawns. And loads of perfectly cooked squid. The depth of flavour in the sauce was nothing short of epic. And to top it all, Elio was a great and friendly (English speaking) host. Very very tasty and reasonably priced. Get here if you like seafood. You will be delighted.More

Portugal is well known for fish and seafood and the Ze Ze doesn't disappoint. The large seafood soup dish should not be missed. The proprietor is friendly and speaks English. Be warned that it's not open every evening. so check first but when open, it's...top of the range.More

A fabulous family run restaurant with very friendly and helpful staff. Mother in law is in charge of the cooking which her son in law serving us tells me is done in the old fashioned way. We had the lobster rice to share and would...happily go back and eat again any time. Easy to miss away from the pedestrian area but worth the 10 minutes walk anytime.More

Lovely little find. Owner very enthusiastic about the menu and went through what everything was which was very helpful. He had an idea of what was GF which again was helpful. Food was delicious. Very small and cosy. Easy to miss on the street. More...of a ‘family restaurant’ than an ‘A La carte’ which is most of the time what we all need- casual, relaxed and enjoyable. Recommend a visitMore

Great food matched with a lovely and knowledgeable host who speaks many languages fluently. The video playing on the big screen featuring the dishes of the restaurant and the owner edited into famous movies is a hoot. Try this place - you will love it.
