Tasty food for a good price (grilled bacalau was about 8/9 euro). It a small place with not so many tables. Waiters are kind and speaks english and a bit of italian.

Faca e Garfo is very popular among tourists mostly because it's mentioned by both the Lonely Planet and the Guide du Routard. In my opinion, though, such popularity is not entirely deserved. Being rather small, you'd better reserve in advance, but this won't probably spare you from waiting some time outside, as the manager apparently accepts more reservations than he... More

Could not have asked for more from this humble restaurant. We saw it in a guide book and were not disappointed. Great to hear locals also enjoying lunch. Fabulous seafood. Great service and value.

We came here on a recommendation from a Sandeman's tour guide, and it did not disappoint! The food was delicious, there was so much of it, and it was reasonably priced! I had the steak with fried egg and my boyfriend had Sea Bass, and we both enjoyed it very much. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful, too! Highly... More

We went there for dinner with some friends and three little kids. The owners were professional but friendly. The menu is neither big nor inventive. It consists of standard Portugal fair. Side dishes are mainly steamed vegetables and cooked potatoes - hearty and homely, just like this restaurant. But the execution is excellent. We took owners advice and ordered some... More

Our guide, Paolo, from Lisbon Explorer - suggested his favorite restaurant - we are so glad we did! It was wonderful! My son got the fried sardinis, my daughters got the steak and sauce and I got the special of the night - octopus! We asked our waitress for a good wine - and it was wonderful. Luckily, we went...

We had the grilled octopus and the grilled sardines, both were delicious. It's a small, nicely decorated restaurant with great service and very reasonable prices. We might have go back again on the same trip!

We ended up at Faca & Garfo on a recommendation of our tour guide. The restaurant is small, seating maybe 30 people maximum. However, we were lucky enough to get a table for two. The food is simple but very tasty. It is traditional Portuguese food without any fanfare. The menu is mainly fish and meat, so maybe not a... More

Nice, small characteristic portugeese restaurant. Food definitely worth the money. Very pleasant waitress.
