Ordered a cataplana with codfish, for two, they didn't mind we requested it without coriander. So it came a big stew of mainly potatoes, few shrimps and small clamps, some codfish. Couldn't eat it a lot as it was absolutely... More

This very popular locals' joint on the harbour in Faro serves up enormous portions of a mind-boggling range of local seafood and fish. Cod, tuna, shellfish - you name it! 3 of us ate starters and mains, washed down with pre-dinner drinks and two bottles of house wine, for about € 120. Not a bad value all considering!

First night in Faro towards the end of November, and we decided to try this restaurant. We were the only people in there until a party of four local people arrived – and that was it for the evening. Such an empty place does, in my opinion, feel rather awkward, but we were ushered in and seated so quickly, and... More

Very good and very fresh fish. I recommend the typical Marinheira fish stew. Excelent flavour and the freshness of the ingredients is a must.

Enjoyed a lovely dinner here we had the Cataplana for 2, it was so big it would have done four people, it was great and a wide range of seafood, Spent a while over a bottle of wine before ordering dessert, great evening with great food.

Was at the restaurant for dinner. Ordered lobster rice and it was very tasteless. It took very long time to order and at least 45 min to get the check after asking for it repeatedly. I would not recommend this unless other places nearby are closed and you are very hungry.

Very good restaurant, excellent service .fresh fish and sea food . We were searching all over town for the true Portuguese culinary experience and we were just lucky to "bump" into this restaurant. We only wish we were staying longer in Faro to enjoy another meal at this gem of a restaurant.
