An extensive selection of authentic and fresh seafood dishes, the garlic prawns and the tuna steak are to die for! Service was consistently good and friendly. The chocolate cake is listed as "the best in the world". A big statement, but I'd definitely put it high in my top 10. We got 3 extra servings after eating the first. Order... More

We were staying in the Faro Hotel, and had a breakfast package so knowing that it had a restaurant / bar on the rooftop, we went up there first! Fantastic view of the Marina, the Nature Reserve and indeed the Old Town's steeple and bell towers - let alone the planes flying in to the nearby Faro airport and the... More

We stayed at the hotel, so Ria Formosa became our breakfast- and dining-room... The breakfast was far better than we ever get at home -- the same goes for the dinners. Everything we ordered turned out to be tasty and beautifully laid out. The waitresses didn't speak much english, but they made up for that by their great attitude. It... More

What can you say about this hotel except it has it all. It's got the best view in town and a must do. Exceptional service and location do yourself a favour and at least enjoy a beer if you don't have time for a meal.

Had the most amazing meal of sardines; crab and sea bass here. All beautifully cooked and served. The staff have limited english but this doesn't prevent them from helping you and giving you excellent service. We unfortunately picked a night when mosquitos were at their worst but this didn't prevent us from having a lovely meal!

Thanks to Dr Ben otherwise we would never have found it, the restaurant is located on the fourth floor of the Hotel Far, it is nice and airy with an outdoor terrace (but due to rain we ate indoors). The menu was poorly translated into English so we had to ask what certain things were. I had a cured Portuguese... More

Having spent a fruitless 30 mins looking for the restaurant we discovered it was in the Faro hotel, on fourth floor. This was the end of our food worries. Modern, surrounded by glass with a lovely view if the old town and the Ria Formosa, its a lovely place to be. It has a large sun deck, but we ate... More

Went twice to this restaurant and have lovely meals both times. Couldn't believe how reasonably priced it was the first time - thought they'd made a mistake on the bill, but second time just as good. Definitely recomment it.

Lovely food. Great selection of fish, freshly prepared. Good value. Plenty of locals eating there, which I consider a good thing.
