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

Lovely restaurant! Amazing service and delicious food. I recommend the duck for the main and the goats cheese entree. The servers were knowledgable and friendly. Everyone of my group enjoyed their meals and we would definitely go back. The price was very reasonable.

We stumbled across this restaurant walking from the parking at Sao Francisco into the old town. The set lunch menu is amazing value at 15 euros, including a glass of wine. The a la cartel offered a wide choice of Portuguese dishes, which tempted my daughter. The meal was the best Portguese cuisine we have had in Portugal. The Golden... More

Every plate we tried at this place was exquisite. My friends loved the rich seafood soup; my cod au gratin was amazing. The risotto was "f-ing delicious" according to my friend beside me right now. The ambiance was different than other places in town - it fancy is what you're after, this is your place.

Nice family place with good Portuguese cuisine at reasonable prices for the good quality you get. We had a sopa rica de peixe, tomatada and filetes de peixe galo. Everything was cooked perfectly and the price was very good for the quality. Service was very good. Staff was attentive and very very kind with the kids. Will return on a... More
