it overlooks the marina and serves fish and seafood. Full of locals and very friendly staff. Some of the review below are quite funny, I am not sure what people expect but if its straight forward regional fish dishes that are done very well. Don't go to a restaurant that has pictures of fish and the word fish emblazoned all... More

You can tell from the other clientel that this is not a tourist place but one frequented by foodie locals.What a refreshing change from the abundance of tourist grub... More

With a friend we went for some tipical portuguese seafood dinner based on good reviews. Service was quick, apparently friendly. 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.
