“Great find!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Decided to visit here due to great reviews on trip advisor & they didn't disappoint! Fantastic food. Some of the best we've had in playa blanca. Always a bit wary of going somewhere 'English' abroad, hate the typical stuff u get in Spain. Would much rather eat Spanish! However everything we had was lovely. I decided to go for the retro chicken Kiev, homemade and full of garlic butter! It was delicious. We also had surf & turf, and scampi & everyone enjoyed it. The apple crumble was lovely too, very cinnamony!! Great Irish/French coffees and very reasonably priced. Will definitely return!

Awesome food and excellent service. Can recommend it!
So glad we were told to try it last year and have returned again this year and are looking forward to another visit towards the end of 2014. :-)
Wish head chef Karl, and front of house Karchi every success with the restaurant.

“Excellent food, wine & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

This was our 6th visit to Faro Park and can't believe we have not tried Port of Call before - think we always thought of it as a pub before but now it's a proper restaurant it caught our eye this time...and we're so glad it did!! We went twice during our week's stay and on both occasions the food was excellent - we tried a mixture of fish & meat dishes between the 5 of us, all cooked perfectly and presented well with plenty of vegetables and choice of potatoes. Karci (apologies if the spelling isn't correct) the waiter/owner was very pleasant and provided excellent service and recommended wines which were very good. A nice touch was that on our first visit we mentioned it would be one of our party's Birthday the next time we came and this was remembered and their sweet came with candles and a song! A wonderful restaurant which we would recommend to anyone.

“Very good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

Visited this restaurant after my daughter saw it was well reviewed on this site. The restaurnat was busy on arrival and we more or less got the last table. We were served drinks quickly but were told it would be a little while before they could take the food order as the kitchen was very busy. This was fine as at least we knew the score. In fact it was not too long before our order was taken and the food came reasonably quickly. The food was well cooked and tasty and I think we will go back again. Throughout the meal the service was very friendly.

“Fantastic place - well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

The Port of Call is a little gem of a restaurant in the middle of the residential Faro Park.

It's well priced and the food is fantastic. The service and surroundings are great too.

We were visiting my Parents who stay in this area and they had mentioned it a number of times as being worth a visit one night before we went home. Glad we did. We went on their curry night - Madras and Korma to choose from and both very lovely. My other half would recommend the burger and my dad had their filet steak.
