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.

Of the many restaurants in Faro, few have food which veers too far from the grill. If you would like a bit more variety in your meals, with Michelin standard food, then this could be the place for you. Quality exudes from the moment you walk through the door.

Faz Gostos is a fine-dining restaurant located in the middle of Faro, right next to the Cathedral. Different to many other places in Faro, Faz Gostos does not have a terrace or an outside dining option. The dining room interior is nice overall, but nothing truly exceptional. We went to Faz Gostos twice, once for lunch and once for dinner,... More

The restaurant is in Faro Old Town and you can easily walk past it so look out! We had a lovely evening, the staff were fabulous, and the food excellent. Would recommend for couples and families with older children.

Set in a side street a couple of hundred metres from the seafront, this is a culinary gem. Service was friendly, attentive and highly professional throughout. We chose one of the four four-course dinner menus. A mixture of meat and fish, all courses were perfectly cooked and exceptionally well presented. This place is a fine dining establishment but without prevention.... More

This is a fine restaurant where we held Miguel's Christening party. It's got an exquisite environment, high quality confection, the presentation of meals is exceptional and you can really feel the taste of Algarve in their meals. And not to mention the friendliness and competence of management, excellent professionalism and availability of all employees. To D. Cristina and all the... More

My husband and I retreated out of the heat and into this restaurant for lunch, having spent a very pleasant morning sightseeing in Faro old town. We ordered the set menu for 15 Euros each. Whilst waiting we were brought bread and oil with balsamic vinegar. The bread was fresh and tasty, and the olive oil was very grassy, complemented... More

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.
