I always go in to restaurants really wanting to like them but feel A Venda was underwhelming from start to finish….maybe because we had eaten 8 days of great food in Olhao, Tavira and other small villages which was all fresh, vibrant, exciting! Here was...more canteen style food which was all fairly bland and beige. Service was slow and did not have an opinion on dishes to recommend. Nice setting but doesn’t have the local feel that we were looking for. We paid and moved on. It could be good but not one for me unfortunately. On to the next…..More

Great typical restaurant located in a narrow street in Faro. Very typical. We followed the waiter's recommendations and we were more than satisfied. The staff was helpful and very friendly. Very good quality/price ratio. Would definitely recommend to others or come back myself.

Small restaurant serving petiscos (Portuguese tapas) which were still a generous size. Among the dishes we tried cockles and tuna, clams, spinach with chickpeas, mushrooms.. they were all fresh and tasty. The last two seemed ideal for vegetarian/ vegan people. The staff were friendly and...helpfulMore

Very cosy little restaurant, in a small street in the central area of Faro. Traditional dishes with a twist. I had mostly fish dishes, and really enjoyed the açorda.

This restaurant caters brilliantly for vegans and vegetarians in a country that often doesn’t. The food was sublime and we just kept ordering more! Inexpensive too and the staff are lovely. We sat at one of the tables on the cobbled street which is quiet...and picturesque. A return trip would be a must if we return to Faro.More

Not really what I expected after reading all The good reviews. Not very comfy when sitting outside. Table very small it did hardly fit 3/4 dishes, wine and water. Empty plates were not cleaned until the very last minute. Bit to easy going. No payment...by card. food was..different. Unfortunately felt really sick afterwards.More

Ok, the food was average but the service was appalling. The staff are to busy having a laugh with their mates. Had to remind them to bring drinks. They left off 3 dishes from the order which we had to remind them of. They all...started washing up with people waiting. No concept of service at all. Go if you like chick peas as it seemed pretty much everything was served with it. Asked for a pork dish and it came with 2 very small pieces of chorizo. Would avoid unless you don’t care about food and service and just like recommendations from people who post likes about cheap foodMore

It’s all small portions tapas-like to share with dailies changing quite frequently, atmosphere is really chilled out, mainly young people. Good quality and value for money. Will definitely come back!

I would say 24 to 26 seats available, althought they would have to be in 2 or 3 tables, with a small separation between them. Best regards!
