We had a friendly waiter and enjoyed the Special Seafood selection for 4 people. It's a large, open restaurant and quite noisy - a great place to soak up the atmosphere. The food was definitely tasty and good value.

We were on a tour party of about 22. Waiters were kept busy but were not friendly. Seemed like they wanted us to eat and move on. Food was good and plentiful. There was quite a line up, so I guess they did want us...More

There's a well balanced mix of customers towards the local, meaning the place is not an empty-of-all-meaning tourist attraction... I took the Special Seafood, shrimps and crab. Lovely crab!!! Being a Mediterranean guy, shrimps wouldn't be the hot spot, but Atlantic crab was the deal!!...More

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.
