Long weekend in Faro

A dazzling array of cocktails delivered with excellent service and lovely surroundings. This place was ram jam packed on Saturday night, and rightly so. A great place!

I didn't like it much to be honest... And its soooo nasty to charge different prices in day and night time, under the excuse they operate as cafe in the day and bar in the night... Its the same place, for god sake!!

Nice bar with great location and drinks, we stopped by after dinner and had a Expresso Martini. It was a good choice, great variation of a normal espresso.

Not a great deal to say, great location overlooking the marina, loads of different gins to choose from, maybe a little expensive and a bit bland in terms of atmosphere.

This Cocktail and Wine Bar is definitely worth a visit if in Faro. Set back from the Marina and housed in a lovely old building. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is good.

I drop into Columbus bar whenever I'am in Faro,it's a great place to relax and enjoy a beer,cocktail or a glass of wine and watch the world go by. The atmosphere is perfect,relaxing and comfortable great for passing and an hour or two away from the mid day sun or after exploring Faro s old town

I've been to Columbus on several occasions, and each time the drinks and atmosphere have been great. The drinks menu has a wide variety of wines, spirits and cocktails. Choosing just 1 drink is a challenge! A special thanks to Pedro for his great service, and Fabio for his fabulous cocktails. See you again soon!

Don't be put off by the prices as its actually worth it. Good atmosphere and the drinks were great. Some original stuff like the bill remotes in the table and the menu in the form of newspapers. Thanks for a good night!
