Good service. Perfect cocktails. Right in the central square so perfect to hear the live music or watch the boats on the marina.

We came here twice. The bar looks really cool, sitting outside on the terrace is very nice!! The cocktails are delicious!! They have a big menu, also some more special choices. The price (6-7€) is perfectly fine for the size!!!

Visited from Scotland for a few days and came across this stylish bar on the main square. The cocktails, sharing platters and service were all so good that we kept going back. Would highly recommend this bar to anyone visiting Faro.

Visited here on both nights of our unplanned stay in Faro. Relaxed surroundings, attentive staff and drinks that rival some of the best cocktail bars back home! If you visit Faro then you MUST visit here.
