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!

Easy access (not in August when the parking is full) with the stunning view... The food is cheap, simple, good. I personally like it very much for afternoon beer or eventual cup of coffe.

I was taken to this reastaurant by friends. From the outside the building seems very plain. On climbing the stairs to the area to eat we were greeted with a lovely view or the sea and our table was a few feet from the sand. We ate octopus rice, clam and prawn rice, bowls of the freshest squid, sea bass,... More

Unpretensious restaurant with well cooked dishes (of you want something more elaborate) or with extraordinary sandwiches ("tostas"), always while looking at the sea. Friendly staff, but almost always in a hurry!!
