Went here on a recommendation from friends who raved about it on their last visit to Faro. We had attempted to go last year, but of the two nights there, one night they were closed and the other night it was packed with a huge family celebration taking up most of the restaurant. However, so very glad we made it... More

At a romantic place in the small harbour of Faro, Looking at the old city and Castle. The sea food is excelled served by friendly people. The wine, rose from the Douro was excellent. A place to come back and highly recommended if you need a Fish restaurant in Faro.

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
