My boyfriend and I arrived at 9 pm, we got our starter at 10 pm , the main course at 10:40 pm and the dessert at 11 pm.Service was really slow and the restaurant loud and crowded. I had Gratin Codfish, extremely heavy and full of cream and I could not eat a lot of it. The waiter was really... More

This place serves five star food, the waiters are brilliant, friendly and accommodating and the set lunch for 15EUR is incredibly good value. If you're in the old town and need somewhere to eat this place is highly recommended. Dinner for three, with drinks, came to 41EUR. My only slight criticism is it took two hours for the meal, some...

Dropped in for lunch after reading recommendations. We enjoyed our experience. The service was very friendly and was especially attentive to the needs of a 4 and 7 year old. The food was very good and the local rose wine was superb. Would visit again.

Window shopping the evening before, we saw a full and vibrant restaurant. Backed up with a Michelin recommendation we were disappointed not to get a table. Not deterred however, we reserved a table for the same time the following evening. Arriving a day later we were surprised to be the first diners to the restaurant. Clearly, after 9pm is high...

Indeed, the restaurant offers very good quality food, that is undisputable. So there perhaps a rating "excellent" could be appropriate. But in one way or another it did not match with our expectation of a nice, very good quality meal while on holidays. The place is very nice as such, but takes you terribly far away from the beautiful climat:... More

After many rather ordinary dining experiences in the touristy areas of Portugal, it was delightful to find this calm, unpretentious restaurant in the Faro old town. The service, food and ambiance were wonderful, with specialty dishes such as the fish stew and the duck, cooked to perfection. We left believing in the capacity of the Portuguese to produce honest, reliable... More

We spent 2 wonderful weeks in the Algarve and while the food was in general fine only when we found Faz Gostos in the old town of Faro could I say that I would definitely be back; pity it was on our second last night. The food was simply sublime and the staff were so helpful and friendly. I will... More
