Well priced and tasty afternoon snack. Quick and pleasant service. Well located by the beach with wifi which was a huge plus for our teens!

I have been waiting to be served in this restaurante for now 45 minutes and am still waiting, I am a relaxed and layed back person but I feel such a lack of respect watching 3 people with the same orders served before me coming 20 minutes after me, I am so shocked and it has completely put a complete...

Stopped in at o Paquete without a recommendation, couldn't be more pleased. There is a restaurant indoors but we chose the terrace with the sea literally 20 metres from our table. The menu is varied, catering for many different tastes. The food was excellent and great value, €9 for sea bream or sea bass. We will be back.

We have been going to this restaurant now for over8 years and just love it. It's brilliant location on Faro Beach coupled with excellent friendly staff and great food, the combination makes for a great meal out. Having a letting business in the Algarve, we also recommend many of our guests visit this restaurant and we have never ever received... More

Praia de Faro isn’t one of those places that many, other than the cogniscenti, get to. Cross the single track bridge on the road off the roundabout at the airport and you are in skater/surfer dude territory. Turn to your left as you get onto the Praia and go 600metres to O Paquete, which faces the beach up a set... More

The location of this restaurant is amazing, however the food and staff service needs some work. The menu items are NOT reasonably priced, but I guess you pay for the beach front location. The staff are slow to seat you, slow to take your order and extremely SLOW in bringing out the food. Not to mention that when your order... More

We have been going to this restaurant/café for about 12 years. The location is superb, particularly as we have lots of visitors who come to see us in the Algarve and we pick them up and drop them off at the airport which is very close by. A stop at O Paquete is a wonderful place to start and finish... More

The view in itself from the restaurant is worth a million dollars. The unpretentious and delicious food as well as the easy going attitude of the waiters make for a very enjoyable visit to Paquete!
