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.

Wonderful food. Wonderful service. Nice, very nice staff. Everything in the menu looked good. We had, the fried squid and the shrimps and the Bakalao rice and it was the best.

I really never write reviews but I just had to for this place. My friend and I had two dinners here this week. We absolutely love seafood, are very well travelled and have a high standard when it comes to food and we both think...the food here is exceptional. We had the seafood rice which includes mussels, clams, crab and prawns. I would say it is one of the top 5 meals I have ever had in my life. Lovely choice of wines, great port to finish off. Great service. All the waiters were great, Leandro in particular, even gave us recommendations for his favourite places to eat in Faro.More

A lovely evening for my husband’s birthday, made more special by the amazing staff. We shared the fish Cataplana which was perfect, lots of fresh fish and tasted delicious. However, what makes this restaurant stand out apart from the food were the staff. They were...warm, welcoming and attentive, special mention goes to Kipil who was our main waiter and did everything he could to ensure my husband had a memorable birthday. He was polite, friendly and really enthusiastic, giving us a liquor following our meal and just going that extra mile to make it a lovely evening. To end the occasion all of the staff sang Happy Birthday and gave my husband a little cake with a candle. Thank you so much!More

We chose À do Pinto based on its 4.7 review. However, I was surprised by the food quality. The razor clam had a distinct fishy flavor, and the King Spawn Cataplana was a letdown – the clams were cold, and the king spawn wasn't fresh....As someone who came to Portugal for seafood, this restaurant was a major disappointment. I love the city of Faro thoughMore

I'm not necessarily one who has enjoyed a wide variety of seafood in the past, however as there is so much great seafood locally this is clearly the perfect place. The food is great, the service was lovely and we enjoyed a delicious cataplana.

Just entered without any reading when we saw it looks full compared to other restaurants in the area in October. Turned out very good, reasonably priced. Satisfied for our last meal in Faro.

I would highly recommend this restaurant, food is fresh and tasty, local dishes and plentiful. Very good service and good wine selection. Had the amazing seafood hotpot among other dishes. Lovely to sit outside if you can but best to book.

Went there for some good seafood and were not disapointed. The starters were excelent and the main - we ordered 2 different rice-dishes, tasted very good. The wine recomandation was very good and we got to taste before the finally choice. The local dessert was...also good, but I think we were to full to appreciate it. Very good port recomandation as well - great fit to our desserts. Also here it would be great to come back.More

Great service. Food is very good. You can enjoy typical Portuguese food and from the Algarve. The tradicional dishes with rice and seafood, the typical “Açorda” and several ingredients are a delight to both the eye and the palate. Right in the center of Faro,...it’s an easygoing place with nice decoration and very friendly staff.More

The best traditional Portuguese food in the whole Algarve region. We’ve travel a lot in South of Portugal, gastronomy experience for us is one of the most important aspects to understand coulter of the region. Finding this restaurant in Faro was like finding a gastronomical...treasure. Family run restaurant in the charming spot and such lovely staff. Attentive service but not obtrusive, nothing was too much trouble and smiles all around. We’ve had dinner there twice and consistency always was at present. Do ask staff for food & wine recommendations, they never faulted our expectations. If you are in Algarve region this place is a must to dine in! Cannot recommend enough.More

There are actually two locations about 30 seconds from each other in the old town. The restaurant is family run. The prawn starter was delicious. The cataplana, a Portuguese seafood, and fish stew was awesome. Our great server recommended a delicious white wine. The son...(?) and our server shared a complimentary shot (of ??) with us at the end of the meal. The service was great !! The only drawback was all of the nearby vacated shops and restaurants clearly indicating that the old town/ pedestrian area is hurting.More
