As I write this, Sabores da Se is only ranked the 12th best restaurant in Faro - the 11 above must be very good indeed!

This place offers delicious food in portion sizes that allow you try perhaps four or five dishes if there is two of you. The service is excellent and the enviroment great, inside or out.

We sampled a total of six dishes and non could be described as anything less that 'very good'. Stand outs include caramelised prawns, which was delicious and distinct, and fish steak with onions. Cold stuff including marinated mackerel is also great.

The wine list is sensibly priced as well. I doubt anybody who likes good food at a fair price and visits this place will be disappointed.

We tried many restaurants in our one week holiday in Faro. And we were disappointed for others then we find this fantastic place so we went back 4 times to have a guaranty quality dinner in this own town area no matter good day or raining days. We just love it and of course we also had our last holiday dinner in this Sabores da se restaurant as a beautiful ending of our holiday. Love ...

We had a really great night at this restaurant. The food was really good and very reasonably priced. It's also in a beautiful and historic part of the city. Our waiter was so friendly and attentive, he really made the night for us. We were given local liquers to sample which was great! Would highly recommend this restaurant.

The setting is perfect - cathedral on the one side, orange trees on the other and palaces line up along the cobbled square. The food is gorgeous and not expensive at all - mains are €14 max. We had a party of 6 and literally everyone was impressed with the cooking. Desserts are worth a special mention - ask the waiter, cause some of them are off the menu. Waiters got quite a sense of humor, and port is only €2.5 for a glass. Don't miss this place, you won't be dissapointed.

Lovely food - very good quality, picturesque setting (on cobbled street overlooking Cathedral and beautiful lime trees), and civilized atmosphere. Ticks all the boxes.
