Excellent Meal

We dined here on our first night. The menu wasnt to comprehensive as I dined with a very picky eater but managed to find something he would eat. Each dish was little pricey but when the meal came out it was so tasty well laid out and well worth it.

I have been staying at Hotel Faro at two occasions. The breakfast is nice with s beautiful view over Rio Formosa. We tried dinner here as well and had the Cataplana. Great food and the waitering is perfect. Even if you're not staying at the hotel, this is a great choice for a great dinner in Faro.

Price for starters around 8-10 euros, mains around 11 - 35 euros - good selection including fresh seafood. Welcoming and pleasing service. Perfect place to enjoy a drink or meal - wonderful views from the terrace!

We had dinner last night at this hotel restaurant. We generally would avoid hotel restaurants, and prefer smaller local dining establishments, but we went to this restaurant because we heard of the breath taking views from their rooftop.

Ate here out of necessity more than anything but didn't enjoy the food. I ordered mixed grilled fish and grilled vegetables yet it all came covered in oil! The idea of grilled fish is that you don't put oil! Oh well, not for me.

We arrived at 7:00 PM. First thing we learned was that they serve dinner only staring at 7:30 PM. We mentioned that we would like to wait for dinner time and take some drinks in between.
