This cafe is on the harbourside at Faro which was a pleasant location to eat early one evening during our visit. However, the golden rule is always that anywhere attractive to tourists proves to not be as good value as somewhere more off the beaten track, and this proved the case. I had Pasteis Bacalhau and Viv a pizza and chips; with a bottle of wine this came to forty Euros. The wine was only vinho da casa but was priced at 16 Euros, making it the most expensive we had in our whole week in Faro, and it was also easily the worst, tasting rather like something bought from a supermarket at 1.50 a litre.

Service was a trifle slow and not in any way special.

This is a good place for a coffee or an ice cream, but there are many better places to eat in Faro.

What a lovely place to sit and recover after a 2 hour trip on a bus from Lagos!! A lovely cold drink and an equally lovely sandwich. A lovely spot overlooking the marina. Great place to people watch as well.

There are plenty of places to eat in Faro so it's our own fault for falling for the marina location tourist trap!

Really over-priced and bland food. This isn't what real portugese food is all about so please try somewhere else!

Loved their asparagus & egg crepes. Nice ambience, good for people-watching. Prices are pretty reasonable too.

This cafe has a great location by the side of the marina.
We were a little surprised by some of the comments about expensive food.
We ate in the cafe and thought the food was reasonable with burgers and sandwiches at under 5 euros.
Pizzas were also around 10 euros and the food was pleasant for the price.
As for the beers we had Superbock Sout at 1.75 euros a bottle which was the cheapest we found at any bar in Portugal during our visit.
The service was prompt and friendly.
Worth a visit !
