Description: Under new management since November 2012, FazGostos Restaurant explores the concept of fine portuguese cuisine with some french cuisine touches. The warm and wonderfully decorated dining room, complemented with a professional and friendly staff, turns the place into a perfect spot for a business lunch or a more intimate dinner. The cooking is inspired in typical portuguese cuisine, and has something for every taste, which presents familiar flavours with some modern techniques. The restaurant is proud of its wine cellar, which can be visited by the guests, and where you will definitely find something of your liking.

Very good food, very reasonably priced! It's a lovely setting with helpful staff based in the middle of the old town, they were happy to seat us regardless of the late time of our arrival and didn't rush us. The wine selection was good too

I went here in June 2014 and globally was a very good experience. The decoration and atmosphere is very pleasant, very suited to a special occasion or just to relax some good meal (the service takes a little bit, so don't go there if you are in a rush). The price is reasonable for that kind of restaurant.

Lovely bread and oil To start. I had prawn risotto and my husband had salt cod, which he said was delicious. Both mains were... More

My friends & I visited Faz Gostos on a Saturday night in April. It was about 60% full. We had to wait 25 minutes before even being given a menu, let alone being offered anything to drink. The organisational side of things was pretty chaotic. The food was quite good although the portion size was quite meagre for the high... More

it was our first day in Algarve and after visiting Faro we started looking around for a restaurant to dine in, hopefully a good one. We saw that Faz Gostos had a Michelin label at the entrance, prices were reasonable....so we stepped in and we really enjoyed our meal. Service was really good, and so was the food. We had... More

Our fourth visit to the Algavre. Faro.. the gateway to the Algarve, fly in, drive/taxi/tour bus out to your resort and back for your flight home! That was our experience until this weekend. I have to say that our eyes have been opened. If you are looking for a weekend break, you will not be disappointed with Faro. A 50th... More

Great food and nice and friendly staff. Prices are adequate to the food, specially at lunch if you try the executive menu. I'll be back here for sure.

Very good location and an excellent lunch menu (Executive menu) at a quite valuable price of 15 € per person. We tried the pork cheek dish and some tuna steak that were very good. Service was attentive and we managed to have lunch already at 3 PM. To get back to if in Faro again.
