Great restaurant - delicious fish and seafood, very friendly service. From the restaurant you even have a panoramic view of Lisbon. But much more important is the great food.

Our guide suggested Farol for lunch. It was a great recommendation. We ate great grilled octopus, clams in wine sauce and a shrimp “soup” that was like a porridge with bread as the thickener. Lots of garlic. A carafe of vinho verde. We enjoyed it...More

This place seems to split peoples opinions and it’s split mine. It gets a 3* for the whole experience of catching the ferry across from Lisbon late on a pretty afternoon when I’m feeling content and in a good mood. Without the trip across etc...More

A bit noisy but with a very diversified offer of fish and shellfish, with fair prices. It will not be for decoration or differentiation in the service that comes here: it is even for the quality of the food.

Farol is a restaurant right outside the ferry docks at Cacilhas. It was recommended to me by a shop owner in neighboring Almeda and I didn’t regret following his advice. The grilled sea bream was just excellent, and served with 3 kinds of vegetables. A...More

This restaurant was recommended by our tour guide, because she said the seafood restaurants on the other side of the river are better, and cheaper. Upon arrival with the ferry ( only 3€ pp both ways ) the restaurant was immediately on the corner. Small...More

A reservation is always recommended. The price level is medium. If you choose the lobster, it will of course be more expensive. Calculate with approx. 40€ per person.

The "Farol" is a century-old restaurant, the oldest in Setubal and is known for good beer and good seafood, from their own aquariums. With a cozy atmosphere and a great ''Tejo'' river and Lisbon's view, it's a great place to be.The name "Farol" came from the lighthouse's existence in Cacilhas who once helped navigation of small boats,called "Cacilheiros".Cacilheiros are an easy transport to lots of people in Lisbon to the other side of the Tagus river. You can combine the great tour with the excelence to be able to lunch or dinner in Cacilhas and taste our fish or seafood.
