It appears we saved the best meal for the last night of our trip. We've had great food on this weekend away but Tasca do Ricky takes top spot. Tucked away just off the main road we were greeted warmly and offered help on the menu. We opted for seafood rice and quite simply loved it. The option for 2... More

A small, friendly restaurant with a wide range of great food... we tried 5 dishes and they brought us tasters of a couple more. The owner and all staff were helpful and friendly, and the food outstanding... only wish we were there longer so we could go back and try more things...

The tourist office recommended this restaurant to us. The staff was really really nice and the menu was full of traditional Portuguese dishes (even Francesinha which is typical of the north of Portugal) with reasonable prices. You absolutely have to try their Sangria !

So, I have to say that it was not our first choice, as it was further from our hotel, but we ended up in this restaurant and we loved it! The owner and waiting staff are all lovely people that took excellent care of us all evening. The food was delicious and their advice regarding wine was perfect! No regret,... More

We had a pre-christmas break in Faro and visited Tasco da Ricky for dinner on our last night. We ate quite early - 7.30 - and were the only customers in the restaurant, hence service was excellent. The young waiter was chatty and friendly and spoke good english. The restaurant is located down a side street, tucked away rather, and... More

Popped-in here for lunch before catching the train from the nearby station and was not disappointed. Very warm welcome from Ricky himself. Plate of fresh and tasty panfried flatfish (dab?), rice and salad, small beer and coffee only 6.50 EUR. Excellent value.

An amazing meal and Ricky, the restaurant's owner, was wonderful. He even took the the time to play with our son. Definitely worth visiting if you are in Faro.

We went hear for lunch on the last day of our trip. Wish we had found it sooner, as the food was really tasty and the staff very welcoming. We had the seafood cataplana and as well as being the tastiest i have ever eaten it was also the cheapest for the area, so a win win situation. Would definitely... More
