“Fantastic Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

For the last night of our holiday we wanted a special restaurant and Faz Gostos didn't disappoint. The food and service were fabulous and the dining room was extremely smart.
I had clams with garlic as a starter followed by the sea bass casserole, both were perfect.
The staff were pleasant and helpful, but the owner seemed as though she wished we weren't there!

“Fantastic service with great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012 via mobile

A fine restaurant with lovely food. Having spent two weeks in the algarve this was the best experience. A special mention should be paid to the male waiter working on Saturday 28 July. Brilliant reflection of the restaurant and really made the meal enjoyable. Thank you!

“Very Good food but too slow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012 via mobile

Great location ,excellent food ,good atmosphere , extensive wine selection
All spoilt by the wait for the meal
We went on a night where there 17 people in the restaurant not exactly busy starters took 1 hour ??
Even if you like to take your time over the experience this is a little testing

fabulous restaurant with 5 star service, food and staff. A real dining experience not to be missed. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough and you must visit to see for yourself. Cannot wait to visit on our next trip to Faro.
