Faustino always has been one of my favourite restaurants in Fortaleza, with especially the lamb dishes being excellent next to very good seafood dishes.

Some dishes come out excellent, others not so much. For starters we had "bolinhos de macacheira" (cassava rolls) filled with "carne de sol" (corned beef - my favourite) and "queijo coalho" (local cheese). We also had... More
