Description: The Ria Formosa Lounge Bar and Restaurant, on the Hotel Faro's rooftop terrace, afford a breathtaking panoramic view over the city and the Ria Formosa. Regardless of the time of day or the season, this is always a sophisticated and inviting place in which to relax by yourself or socialise with others. An extensive selection of high-quality breakfast items are served here from 7.00 am to 10.00 am(Monday to Friday) at the Weekend the breakfast items are served from 7.30 am to 10.30 am. Lunch at the Ria Formosa Restaurant is served from 12.30 pm to 3 pm. This is the perfect place for both businesspeople and groups of friends to have lunch or to relax after a visit to the city's historical sites. Dinner is served from 7.30 pm to 10.30 pm, but we suggest you arrive in plenty of time to enjoy a pre-dinner drink or cocktail while you marvel at the magnificent sunset.

Reviewed May 16, 2012 via mobile

We had lunch on the terras. The service was exellent as was the 'iberico' pig for starters and the 'codfish' as mail course. Don't be fooled by the entrance, the view on top is great. Have a nice dinner:-)

“Nice restaurant with a nice view”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

The restaurant was not easy to find. In the entrance of the hotel we could not see any signs, not before we entered the elevator in the lobby. We are happy that we went here. The food was nice, so was the atmosphere. New and nice interior and good service. There was not many people here when we had lunch. Maybe they need to work on the signage so people see where it is situated, nice view from the top of Hotel Faro! This is a restaurant we would go back to next time when we are in Faro!
