This is where all the locals go and you can see why. Excellent, friendly service and delicious food. It felt more like being invited to someone's home for dinner than going out to a restaurant. The coffee ice-cream for desert was amazing. The only shame...More

The place isn't fancy, but the food and wine are great. They serve a variety of Portuguese dishes - from fish, octopus, to meat. Ask for a nice vino Verde reco.

Friendly staff, excellent food, reasonable prices, possibility to have half-portions (highly recommended as even those are big!) - what else could you ask for? I'll definitely return here if passing thorough Fao again!

This restaurant has a traditional cuisine in a very familiar ambience, inside the historic centre of Fão. The price is good.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while exploring the town of Fão and we weren't disappointed! Everyone was so friendly and the food was very good. Very reasonably priced as well. We recommend it if you are in the area and looking for great Portuguese food.
