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

What a fantastic Restaurant with Haute Cuisine style menu, which included not only an A La Carte but four set menus of differing prices. We had Menu three which comprised five courses all were well presented and wonderful flavours, the staff were extremely helpful and spoke excellent English. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We visited this restaurant on the Saturday of our visit & arrived quite late. the service was excellent, the food to die for & the ambience in the restaurant excellent. We were the only non locals there. A bit more pricey than the other places we saw but worth the extra. Try it.

I wanted to plan a special dinner for 10 people in Faro to celebrate a birthday and contacted Faz Gostos to arrange it. Christina, the General Manager took over all arrangements. On arrival we were served with beautifully prepared and presented canopes and cocktails. Our table was specially decorated. Our guests had a choice of 3 Tasting Menus or A... More

I came here with my daughter on our first night in Faro. We both loved it. Lovely family restaurant with a great atmosphere.

A bit on the expensive side but the place had nice vibe. The seafood soup and creme brulee were amazing - would definitely go back again just for that. Mains were average (we tried codfish and seabass).

This restaurant has either changed hands or lost their excellent chef since we were last here several years ago. The menu is still impressive but our starters and mains were very mediocre. We ordered crepes suzettes for desert as our last experience was outstanding and it was cooked and flambed at our table. This time we were presented with a... More

What I enjoyed about this place is the setting, it is a very comfortable room which has the tables set out as they should be, suitably distanced from each other. Had what a while to get a drinks order in and then for the wine to arrive for 3 guests whilst all the others had been served their beers. Beyond... More

Based in the old town this is an upmarket restaurant at a reasonable price Dinner 2 courses and wine about 35 euros a head . Relaxed atmosphere and ideal for couples, sadly I uttered the four most depressing words in the English language "table for one please", however it was an uplifting experience with good food and good service.
