The only drawback with this fantastic family owned and run restaurant is that it is not open very day of the week, they close on Sundays. Over the past ten years their service has been excellent, the food very good especially the fresh fish available all the time. This is cooked and served exactly to your instructions. A place nt...

You have to try the sardines to start. I had the sea bass with garlic to follow. Heaven The waiter was also a bit of a character.

I ate at Jardim do Farol on the second night of my holiday (travelling alone) and it always takes a little bit of nerve to enter a restaurant alone in the evening but I need not have worried - I was welcomed warmly and was found a table in the bar area. The service was excellent not too quick and... More

To be honest, we went to this restaurant due to it being so close to where we were staying at Rocha Brava. We didn't have high expectations, but ended up having such a fun evening. We really enjoyed our meals of golden bream and lamb. The owners were so friendly, helping us to learn a few more Portuguese words and... More

We usually come here for lunch a number of times, friendly and reasonably priced. Great chicken piri-piri. They had started to do take out last year so is a good option if don't feel like eating out or cooking one evening. Never had an evening meal here but is always busy so must be doing something right

Lovely little restaurant with good menu especially fish spoilt by a rude hostess who seemed to resent new customers. Lavish attention was paid to a party of regulars who placed a large order whilst we were. Left to wait an age to even get a drink. One other couple gave up and left after 45 minutes without having even received... More

We generally visit Jardim Do Farol on the first night of any visit, the whole family (the owners ) are always so welcoming. Our favourite meal is probably Golden Bream but the menu is quite extensive. Just a very nice portugese restaurant that does it right, very good food at very reasonable prices. Well worth a visit, best to book... More

We ate here twice in the last week and would highly recommend it! Family run, with very friendly service and excellent English spoken by all. The fresh fish of the day is excellent, with a number of options brought to your table in addition to the regular menu. A good idea to book, and remember its cash only, no credit... More

A pleasant Portuguese place, with very good food. The tourist menu is very cheap and well worth having, and the sitting out area has plenty of shade if needed. Good service too.
