Nothing to dislike. It was the ideal dining experience. Karin was warm and welcoming. My steak was cooked to perfection. The staff were helpful and attentive but not overbearing. The surroundings were delightful. Overall, a superb dining experience.

This family run restaurant is simply excellent . As we were there during the summer is was nice to be able to dine outside in the tree covered courtyard.

There can be a greyness about the food on offer in the Algarve. Well appointed restaurants, service that can't be faulted but food that has no qualitative substance. In this barren space Florian blooms spectacularly. A chef who has great talent and is really trying. Dishes that excite and are to be shared, discussed and marvelled at. This was my... More

We dined here twice on our recent week's stay in the Algarve. It was so good we went back for more. The owners were very pleasant and so easy to talk to. The food was fabulous, amazing, excellent, and not to be missed . . . the service was very good and the ambience is really lovely. It should be... More

First of all cannot begin to understand the bad reviews. Personally I would not give them time of day as they are obviously written by people who have no idea of food, or what a restaurant experience should be. Stick to TGI Friday's! We have been going to the Florian for 5 years now. We are now regular customers due... More

We decided to try Florian on the basis of the bulk of previous reviews. Firstly, the decor and ambiance was really very good. Peter the owner was extremely welcoming on arrival and the staff generally were very pleasant and service was friendly and efficient. Primarily, the food was superb. We had scallops and duck terrine to start, both were excellent.... More

Personally I see Algarve restaurants in 3 categories: high spend, great food for special times in a beautiful setting; good value, fascinating local places with plenty of heart and good food; and the rest (coast locations, touristy, marble floors, samey menu). Florian has a well deserved place in the first category. Florian has excellent food, with well-sourced ingredients, considered pairings,... More
