I last reviewed Faz Gostos in March 2015 and on our latest visit to the Algarve in January and February 2017 made a point of returning. The restaurant has expanded and now has a very smart extension (we were told part of an old wine warehouse) beautifully converted to house additional diners with a smart bar area and delightful terrace....

Great location within older part of Faro near to the cathedral. Restaurant was smart and elegant which included outdoor dining with shade. We we greeted by friendly, polite staff who made you feel welcome. We had the set lunch menu which was 15 euros per person. This included a starter, main course, dessert, coffee and beverage. Excellent value for money.... More

A celebration meal for my birthday and we could not have picked anywhere better. The food was really special and the restaurant decor was tasteful. Staff were very helpful and attentive. We had a great time and would highly recommend it to anyone.

The fixed price lunch menu of 3 courses, wine and coffee for €15 is not only incredible value but delicious food with a wide selection. Faultless.

This is an elegant establishment in Old Faro, worth a visit. We stumbled upon it for a late lunch and were not disappointed. The interior is quite chic and spacious; service is very professional. Given the lovely sun on the terrace we ate outdoor with a view on this little square. The only negative point about this is that the... More

We stopped here because it was the fitst (and only after three weeks) restaurant we had seen that had linen napkins. That bespoke a touch of class that lasted for a delightful two hour lunch!! The business menu @€15,00 for water, wine, starter, entrée, dessert and coffee is, quite simply, unbeatable. The food was, without exception, excellent quality. My wife's... More

I was there yesterday, for lunch, with my mum and a friend. The service was excellent: friendly, attentive and very professional. We had the executive lunch menu, great value at 15€. Includes bread (with a side of olive oil and vinegar), soup or salad, a meat or fish dish (from a selection offered), glass of wine, water or soft drink... More

Beautiful location just behind the cathedral, tables outside in the sun. Set menu for 15 Euros. Had corn and spinach soup - ok. Ordered golden codfish expecting a piece of cod with veg but got an omelette, not to my liking. It was not very nice, it came with a green salad which was boring, no dressing. The house wine...

Food was excellent, a little more expensive than some other menus we looked at but this was soon overlooked by the quality of the food & Service
