It was the location, on the sunny side of the old town square, more than the food which attracted me to Sabores da Se but I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner, sitting out front on the terrace. The "Coperto" of local cheese, ham, olives and crusty bread made for an ideal starter. The Seafood Kebab which I had for a main... More

We waited almost 1/2 hour for our drinks: 2 beers and 1 water. After mentioning to the waiter that we still haven't been served after 45 min, he came up with some dishes which we didn't order. We paid for the drinks and left. The restaurant wasn't full at all, so that couldn't be an excuse.

Shrimp dish was tasty but portion too small. Picanha meat too hard. No open wines. Service too slow. Overall not recommendable.

The restaurant is situated on the ancient square. The view is great, especially in night time. We were almost the last clients in late evening. It was very quiet around, really few people were there. We felt as if the restaurant was working and the square was opened only for us. That was great! Food was really good and not... More

This was the worst meal of a 3 week stay in Algarve. We had a table out on the terrace. We ordered only a main course. These two dishes (steak / chicken with port wine sauce) were served luke warm at most. When we complained the food was obviously re-heated and came back only slightly warmer. The chicken, served in... More

I went there for dinner. The location is amazing: in front of the Largo Da Se, in the center of the olf town of Faro. The service is warm and friendly. The menu is an Algarve classic. We chose as starters bolinhos de bacalau, not so good (too many potatoes and too few bacalau) and a grilled bacalau quite good,... More

We, and many of the other clients at lunch time, were appalled by the slowness of the service. One couple gave up and left. After a wait to place our simple order, our starter took 45 minutes to arrive and our main courses another 20 minutes. The restaurant was not very full. The waiters were brusque and clumsy. There were... More

After visiting the cathedral in the morning the reseraunt Sabores da Se looked very inviting so my wife and I paid it a visit. One of the waiters gave us the "sales pitch" of what a great fish restaurant it was by going through the menu. As we had made our minds up to eat there anyway we let him... More

We had walked around and found found this gem, sitting outside and enjoying the sun, we drank rose from the algarve and ate sardines and olives followed by the most delicious fresh fish, We finished with coffee and the portuguese digestif drink, which I cannot spell but is pronounced, modrinho , I think.

A perfect local restaurant in the old square. Peaceful, sunny, very courteous and friendly service with a great selection of fresh seafood. Definitely worth going to and explore the beautiful old town. Great value too.
