Faustino's is a fantastic alternative to the great fish restaurants in Alvor. The service is impeccable, very friendly and very knowledgeable of their food and drink. The breads and dips (Chimichurri), steaks, ribs and proper burgers, and home-made desserts, are all fantastic. We thoroughly recommend Faustino's.

I have reviewed this restaurant once before and the chef's special of steak and chicken was not so special. However, this time out I had the slow cooked beef brisket. This chef's special was very tender indeed, any fat had melted right into the meat so it had lots of flavour. The brisket was served with mashed potatoes and crisp... More

We followed the recommendation and came over from the Praja do Rocha area. We really like the restaurant setups in Alvor in general, very inviting. And the Faustinos Steak House was a good choise. Great service, great meals. I simply would go there again. Like many other people this evening.

Went for special which was great value - €27 for three cuts of beef (x2), two sides and two sauces. All cuts were cooked to perfection, were juicy and succulent and had that fabulous chargrilled flavour. The sides and the sauces were also of an excellent quality. Wine lovely and also great value. Dessert of chocolate mousse (dark and white)... More

First Brisket of my life and before filet de lomo - lombo....with some addings, lol, and red wine, and later a "simbalino". Even if one waiter - ha ha- is Sportingista, I love to go there as typical - typico Benficista.....always very good quality of the food and always very friendly and efficient service! Muito obrigado!

We have just spent two great evenings at Faustino's. My elderly parents, who both require Gluten Free food, were so pleased with their first visit that they made us return despite my wife and I trying to persuade them to try another restaurant,of which Alvor have plenty of!. The waiter listened carefully to their requirements and then offered to cook... More

Again this restaurant does not disappoint. A must for steak lovers. Choose to sit upstairs as views are beautiful.
