Under new management since November 2012, FazGostos Restaurant is located in the heart of Faro's Old Town, where it explores the concept of typical portuguese cooking with some french cuisine twists. The cozy ambience, complemented with a friendly staff and classic and contemporary decoration throughout the dining room, turns the place in an ideal location for a business lunch or a more intimate dinner. The cooking, inspired by local food, elaborates plates for all kinds of taste, which present familiar flavours complemented with a modern touch. The restaurant also offers the possibility of visiting its wonderful wine cave, which will definitely have something suitable to your taste

Not bad, but here at the sea it is better to go to some local points. I would not consider this one as the best in Faro and definetely not as the must. Nevertheless the price is relevant.

We were the first to arrive at Faz Gostos on a Saturday night at 7:30 but it filled up quickly and by 8:30, they were turning folks away. We started with the traditional fish soup for two which we thoroughly enjoyed. It was actually the best thing we ordered and a very large portion. The pepper steak and the tiger... More

Food and service are simply great! They have set menus with different prices and different selections, reasonably priced, and plenty of food! Seafood soup is superb! The local red wine is very good and cheap. They don't open for dinner until 7pm, and you definitely will need to walk around the Old Town to walk off the hearty meal there!

We celebrated a birthday at this up scale French restaurant in Old Town Faro. The head waiter speaks multiple languages and could not have been more pleasant to us and all the patrons in the restaurant. Three of us had steaks and one had lamb. All were excellent though the Steak Faz Gostos was the hit of the evening. We... More

This was our third visit to Faz Gostos and we were not disappointed. It lived up to our high expectations. This is 'fine dining' but not at those prices. The food is excellent, the staff could not be more helpful and it is very good value for money! No more to be said: just go and enjoy!

Booked a table via BestTables and had no problem when we arrived. Menu is quite varied and price range very good. Had amazing peppered steak for €14! Can't ask for more!

We stumbled across this restaurant on our way to a more touristy one in the square but were enticed in by the lunchtime special and the fact they had vegetarian dishes. The staff were exceptionally helpful, creating a special vegetarian dish so I could also enjoy the lunchtime meal deal. Lovely glasses of wine also included. Three courses plus wine... More

We had a wonderful meal in this Restaurant. This is fine dining in lovely surroundings but with a comfortable atmosphere. The staff were all friendly and happily discussed the history of the building (there are caves underneath the building which you can view through windows in the floor). Our waitress also offered suggestions of other towns to visit in the... More
