This charming restaurant offers:
—> both indoor and outdoor dining options (a plus to those of us still taking extra precautions around COVID)
—> a limited enough menu to have confidence that each dish is thoughtfully prepared
—> friendly staff who struck the balance between...being laid back and still being helpful
—> and finally….. the food. It is delicious, but what will forever stand out to me was a carrot dish they had. Their carrot dish is the best vegetable dish i have had in my life anywhere, and I do not think it will be surpassed. I loved it so much we ate there a second night when my friend arrived, and she too was bowled over. When we asked our guesthouse hosts where to dine on the third night, they - locals and skilled foodistas - immediately said Se7pedras is the best in the city.
Yes, Se7pedras is located in the touristy dining part of the city (this gave me pause) but don’t let that put you off. If you are reading this go, and please please try the carrot dish - it is amazing.
Yes, my review is built around praise of a carrot dish. No I am *not* a vegetarian or vegan. Had you told me I’d be writing this review before my trip to Faro, I’d have laughed in your face.More
