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.

Dinner with friend. I ate crispy chicken halloum burger. Chicken was dry and halloum was not grilled enough, it was a bit ”plastic”. Whole plate missed taste. Fries were good though. Friend ate perch file with boiled potatoes. There was three pieces of fish, only...one had been seared properly. Not enough salt in the fish, graving was good and fingersalt on top of the potatoes was great.More

It was within walking distance from our hotel. We had a table in the new part of the restaurant and not in the boat. We did not have a view into the sea but it was ok. Our food was delicious: ribs, chicken burger and...chicken salad. Prices were reasonable, but the room was quite noisy and not so cosy. However, we would recommend this place. Ice- cream was very tasty and other desserts, too.More

Business meeting in Faros provided us with a great location, wonderful service, and excellent food. All dishes ordered were tasty and laid out beautifully. My asparagus soup and steak dinner were spot on, excellent choices. Also, our clients and colleagues dishes received excellent feedback and...thanks to the kitchen. The restaurant is within a pleasant 5 min stroll from central and the surrounding scenery is a pleasant add. Live musing is played during some summer evenings.More

Quite a busy place, but it didn't bother us at all. They had live music at the time too. The staff was friendly, service was quick and the food delicious. One of the better chicken burgers I've had. Also the baked potato with skagen (shrimps...and mayo) is worthwhile to taste.More

Good food from fresh ingredients with lots of local stuff too. The perch was great both as fillets and in burger. Fast and polite service even though place was near full. Pleasant terrace at waterfront for eating outside.

Booked a table inside, as the weather was unstable (as ever). The interior was a pleasant surprise, with sea views from the windows. Perch was again excellent, and service friendly.

We had a late dinner here and there was nothing special about what we had it was ok and it felt like you paid for the view. I would have given it 1 star but our server was 5 star in every way and made...the experience ok. Also the Mojito was ok but I think they forgot the rum! 🤣More

Another business lunch, this time at Faros. Covid-19 had messed up eating out for so long, that it was a pleasure to be able to eat out again after so long. There were four different options to choose from, and we all happened to prefer...the meat option. The weather was really beautiful, so it almost felt like being on vacation somewhere abroad. And the food was very good. I will most definitely come back again some other time, if only for the nice atmosphere.More

First day of summer. Great location at the seaside. Outdoor dining at summer time strongly recommended. I had the Crispy Chicken salad which was good. Summer weather & cold beer, what more can you ask.

This place is perfect for dinner in summers with an amazing sea view. I went with friends and we ordered Salmon and burgers, they were served with coleslaw but it was scanty. The food was overall good but it was little over-priced, may be charged...for the view too. The waitress who served us very friendly, she gave us a warm welcome, we had a little chat too about our summer plans since we all were students.More

Excellent variety of vegan icecreams. Enjoyed the mojito flavor, very fresh. Service was good, wine could have been colder.
