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.

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

The restaurant is nice clean, not too dark. The service is very kind, friendly, even attentif. We did spent around € 100 for 2 menu's and a good bottle of wine. I guess in the menu the food is a bit too commercial, too touristic. I did miss freshness in it. But yes, what was served was correct. For a... More
