This is a great place to eat ! Situated almost on the fabulous beach, the menu ranges from enormous toasters to the most delicate seafood. Be warned that the portions are huge ! I recommend the seafood soup which is served in a tourine and is absolutely delicious. We visit here a lot and at all times of the year.... More

Time to kill near Faro Airport, excellent location, brilliant view, great menu for every taste and budget- especially the Seafood soup and toasted sandwiches to die for! Service by VERA is Amazing. Highly recommend.

Wonderfull location, at the beach, just outside of faro city, on the Isle of ilha de faro. Beautifull terrace directly on the beach. Parasols and windscreens to give you good protection. Food was really sweet for lunch. We had chicken and tuna salad. Both big and with lots of extra's. Toilets are clean and WiFi is working good. One of... More

A gorgeous little find. I was there for business and needed a quick break for lunch. This place is like a 5 min drive from the airport. You sit outside and look out to the ocean. We had drinks and lunch and it was superb. Nothing gourmet or worthy of a star, but good honest Portuguese food. Star class friendly... More

This restaurant has a great view out to the beach and sea and is great to be there at sunset. I had the Shellfish Soup and also said i would have Tuna to follow, but the very helpful waitress said that will be too much, the soup is very big dish, so I just had that with the option to... More

For ten years we have been eating and drinking several times a year at O Paquete. No longer. Go next door to Wax Bar or dont even bother to go to Faro Island with its chronic traffic and parking problems. Heftily overpriced bitter wiine (I left the choice to the waitress..) and blinded by stupid neon lights. Give up, dont... More

Both delightful. Food was lovely, very generous portions and attractively served. Staff solicitous and friendly, really appreciated the blanket as I was determined to see the sunset. ( actually views very good indoors too) Mix of locals and tourists, great coffee and desserts Do try this place!

If you're cruising the Faro beach hoping for a friendly spot to grab a bite and watch the ocean then this is a great place to do it! The staff are friendly as ever and they have a bit more space than other places so you may be able to grab an umbrella. Here's the thing on food... The rice... More

We went to try the "plate of the day" and kept on returning! The grilled sea bass is fabulous... The cataplana is also very fine. We are from France, so we know about dining out in local, small restaurants. O Paquete (means "Cruise Ship" in English, Paquebot in French) was a delicious voyage for our dining pleasure. Go for the... More
