Justifiably popular in a good location

This is a busy restaurant in a good location on the small boat harbour in central Faro. The menu features mainly seafood of which the sardines are delicious. It is popular so that the service is slow but why hurry in such a splendid location with lots to see. The house wine is good and the staff... read more

How is this place so far down the list? It's great. The best place for seafood in Faro. Nice view, nice food, nice service. A little expensive but worth it.

We came here because we saw that it was highlighted and had good reviews, I had the steak which was the best steak I had ever had and my wife had the Sea Bass which she really enjoyed. We wanted to stay for pudding but my wife had an allergic reaction to the Sea Bass and had to go to... More

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

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
