Looked ordinary outside but amazingly big and interesting inside. Quirky ornaments in the middle, garden looking section. Service was extremely friendly. Fresh fish on show at the front. Grilled squid were wonderful. Large servings. Although the restaurant looks casual, the presentation of food was lovely and showed effort. Section at the back seemed to have quite a few locals.

We had a fantastic meal here. There were 8 of us and the service was attentive all night. We had a mixture of fish and meat dishes and all were of the highest quality. Highly recommended

Well Faro itself is such a hidden secret and this place just tops that off. We we're there in the off season November and virtually had the place to ourselves. One other couple in the restaurant, so service was just perfect. We'd walked past earlier in the night and greeted by the friendly man at the front. It was too... More

Close to the centre of the old city, this restaurant boasts a garden section which turned out to be an indifferent area with a glass roof. We were persuaded to go in by a staff member at the door, and indeed, outwardly it appeared attractive. With so many restaurants to choose from in Faro, this one comes down the list... More

On our last day in Faro we decided to have a cataplana. We walked and walked and then finally were approached by a friendly Portuguese man (unlike other ones that had tried to recruit us), who genuinely asked us to come in just to have a look. This place is very simple and modest. Simple decor. The number of 'locals'... More

Excellent restaurant in the centre of Faro,with a good selection of fish,meat and Cataplanas.All at reasonable prices but with a great atmosphere.you think your inside but your in the garden to the rear of this very popular restaurant.Booking isn't a problem because it is big enough,and the excellent Portuguese service adds to the joy of eating here.Happy too recommend

Although I have reviewed this restaurant before, it was over a year ago. Since then, it has had a substantial makeover and all I can say is wow! The new interior is fantastic, the outdoor space excellent and the food and service second to none. This really is one of if not the best places to eat in Faro.

The food was perfect, the waiters were kind and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Among our special favourites was the seafood kebabs and also the veal steaks. We ate here several times and would recommend it to everyone.

Don't know in two minds here, simple cooking techniques, food could be fresh hard to tell unless you see what you are about to eat 1st. I would not say it is cheap or expensive all of the restaurants in this area are all touting for business and all of the menu's are the same?
