Fabulous - Lunch menu was excellent value

We had a 5 star lunch at Fas Gusto. They were very welcoming to our 2 yo daughter. The €15 lunch menu was exceptional. Three courses plus a drink and a tea or coffee. The soup pea and ham was delicious, The goats cheese and apple side salad was fresh and exciting. The mains were generous and... read more

We had a fantastic experience with this restaurant! I called well in advance to check if they are open during the Christmas holidays and they actually called me back three times to keep me updated and eventually to inform about the opening times. What a fantastic service! The restaurant itself is very beautiful and the staff is excellent! I don't... More

End of November - few tourists - early evening on a Wednesday! Excellent menu with choices for fish and meat - good starters and a great wine menu. All beautifully served by knowledgeable and courteous waiters. I would definitely return

Went there with a group of colleagues. We enjoyed the wine, starters, ambience . However, my main course (fish) was really a dissapointment, as the quality was parallel to a fish and chips shop! However, other colleagues main courses were very good (i had a taste of the duck and i can say would recommend it). In general, i can... More

So pleased we discovered this restaurant within the old city walls. We had a very warm welcome with excellent service. The food is delicious and well presented. The morgado figgy pudding was amazing. The restaurant was very quiet early on but soon filled up. Definitely worth a visit.

We really don't understand why this restaurant in the red Michelin guide! Good welcoming lady who showed us to our table but then, waited at least 20 min to get the menus and to be asked what to drink while there had been three waiters serving 7tables.

I went to this restaurant in the mood for some fresh fish- I ordered the John Dory fillets with fresh vegetable and coriander rice.
