It was a lovely dining experience. The room was so grand and each course was unique and beautifully prepared. Service was impeccable. Be prepared for a 2-3 hour experience which is a little long but I enjoyed it. The only negative was the dessert. We ordered 2 tasting meals which included dessert and mine was to be a chocolate cake... More

Sometimes it is the staff, sometimes the menu and atmosphere. Faz Gostos exceeded on both, making our four dinners an important part of truly memorable holidays. Located in attractive old Faro. Well trained, kind and intelligent staff with very good language skills. Classic, expansive menu. Not inexpensive but worth every Euro (and still way below average European prices for this... More

We arrived at 7pm and were the first party in the restaurant. The host was pleasant and very charming. Our starters were met with mixed reviews. My scallop gratin was good but there was only one scallop for 9 euros. The mains took 90 minutes to arrive from the time we sat down. The cod with cornbread and sea bass... More

Although the restaurant seemed to struggle with a busy night reflected initially in slow service, all was compensated with a fabulous meal (the duck the standout) and much improved service. Given the traditional almost formal nature of the restaurant, the cost was exceptionally value i.e. Less than 50 euros for a couple with a drink each. I would strongly recommend... More

This is becoming a regular place for us to lunch in the old part of Faro we're going to come again next week with French Family visiting the Algarve - but for now it's just the 2 of us. Lovely lunch, we had the fish of the day and a good portion of it too, and an entrecôte steak, which... More

This restaurante is a good combination of exclusive food with algarvian tradional ingredientes. It is a good try to benefit from the nice old town of Faro and also the nice restaurante. The food is very tasty. I also enjoyed very much the deserts. When waiting for the food it took more than 30 minutes, that was the unless pleasant... More

Place to have a great dinner in Faro: great dishes, good wine selection. Staff very friendly, knowledgable and speaking multiple languages. Bit pricier than nearby restaurants but superior quality.

Goodness me - my title rhymed!! Anyway it is exactly what I said - if you need to be out of the sun for a while then go into the air-conditioning of Faz Gostas and have a nice lunch. Reading other reports I was surprised to see that their service wasn't up to scratch. We have been in the evening... More

I had booked this place as I had read many good reviews and wanted to get our holiday off to a great start. Sadly that didn't happen. In fairness the restaurant is lovely and the food very good, but all of that is irrelevant in the face of shocking service. We arrived at 8.35 and ordered at 8.45. Our starter... More
