We visited the restaurant at night for dinner. It took quite a bit of finding, down some cobbled streets with poor lighting! Even google maps found it hard!

We were warmly greeted. Bread , sardine pate and drinks promptly brought.

I chose a fish and bread speciality and my husband mixed grill. Both were huge portions! My fish broth was lovely (although a tad garlicky), Les's mixed grill cooked to perfection. Afterwards we were given a local liqueur - yummy.

I would recommend as food is good, atmosphere ok ( quiet when we were in and music naff!). Staff were friendly and appreciated my little Portuguese.

Tucked away in a narrow old cobbled street near the Faro train station I found this unassuming restaurant. I ate twice there and experienced two authentic traditional Portuguese dishes. The food was great and very inexpensive. The only minus is the drinks menu, which is limited. Overall I think this is a place definitely worth trying if one finds him/herself in Faro and wants to experience some traditional Portuguese food.

On the recommendation of a friend, my family and I went to Tasca do Ricky in October. We regularly holiday in the Algarve and have eaten in Faro restaurants on many occasions and I would say that this place gets the highest marks of all the establishments we've been to so far. Three of us had an excellent fish stew and one person ordered veal which was very tender and served in generous portions. Ricky (Ricardo), the owner of the restaurant, is personable and welcoming and speaks excellent English. Definitely worth seeking out.
