Huge portions!

We ate at Faro twice, ones for lunch, ones for dinner. I tried their paella,it was really good and the portion was HUGE (I ate half of it). The second time I had codfish spiritual style. Very tasty, and again, I could only eat half the portion. So, for fullgrown men the portions should be enough... read more

Hyped up in the Tour operators promotions, but in reality,the equivalent of a poorly done TFI Fridays, food was OK but have eaten better and not so pricey either.

Have been here a few times over the years as a customer and as invited guest and can honestly say that it is a shadow of its former self relying on past glories.The menu has a heavier emphasis on meat more than fish which for a harbourside eateary seems odd and in my opinion the location and presence of this...

One of the better ones. The food was tasty with an upmarket feel to it. Maybe a euro or two above average price but there is a nice view of the harbour. A bottle of reasonable Rose wine was only ten euro (usually closer to sixteen) . We liked it but bring something warm as it can get a little... More

We saw this restaurant last year and when we went back we tried it for lunch. Thoroughly disappointed. Expensive price, very poor service and the food wasn't very good either. Didn't even get cutlery with food had to find that ourselves. It is in a good location and has n excellent view and we only went for lunch. Will not... More

Unfortunately we didn't actually eat here in the evening but being based at the Barceló Puerto Castillo apartments just behind the restaurant, we used it to have a late breakfast/early lunch most days. Club sandwiches and crepes were perfect. 2 euros for a beer from 10.30am until 5pm and that fantastic view. Barceló have just this week reopened the El... More

Having been enticed by the menu and a complimentary glass of cava we took a table outside - like everyone else(I did feel sorry for the entertainment inside). Plenty to choose from,and we did which resulted in a marvellouss meal but costing a wee bit more had we had maybe bargained for. But well worth it. Quality of food and... More
