Well worth trying
Oct 2020
Been here twice for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the restaurant. The view is wonderful and we found the staff attentive. Food is good... not the very best but totally acceptable and overall a very nice experience. We will return for lunch.....on a nice day... it is a perfect setting. Very chilled.

Most disappointing place in Portugal
Apr 2019 • Couples
Slow service, unfriendly

Too high pricing for low quality

And as said, low quality food

Avoid at all costs

Dog unfriendly
Nov 2019 • Couples
Went to drink a cold beer on the terrace on a quiet Sunday. Went to walk in the entrance. Had my two well behaved dogs with me. The smug member of staff looked down his nose and shook his head with immense distain. THAT kind of attitude has no place on society today. Coming and speaking nicely to the customer would be nice. As a general observation Portugal as a whole is rather in dog unfriendly. This is a shame, as my dogs are my family and if they are not welcome then neither am I. I've heard that Portugal is In a resession and that they want investment from outside countries and their citizens. If my dogs can't come and sit in your crappy bar why would I want to drink there? Same goes for the country as a whole.

Great view, everything else is disappointing
Aug 2019 • Family
As per the title, great view over the tidal lagoon if sat outside.

However, service is rubbish. None of the staff seem interested and didn’t make any sort of eye contact, no check back when our food arrived (which was disappointing as some elements of our order were wrong). Food was fairly average, not horrible but nothing special.

However, this was somewhat redeemed when we highlighted the shortcomings and were offered free deserts and coffees. The service from this point was great.....although possibly influenced by the fact the waiter could see me writing this review. I must also say the deserts were better tasting than our mains.

In short if you want a great view eat here, if you want great food or service go elsewhere!

Stopped here for a light lunch. Perfect food, friendly staff. Sat out on the balcony and has a lovely view over the city walls into the sea.
Would recommend!

I've been waiting for my salad half an hour now (still counting) with the most depressing playlist ever. Don't come and stay happy.

Great view, average food, poor service.
Aug 2018 • Friends
It took forever to get served, the servers avoid eye contact. We were served a gin cocktail in a glass with a huge crack in it, the replacement took forever.
There were only 6 main courses on the menu. The bacalhau was ok. I had flambéd chorizo starter, which was mildly singed outside and still chilled inside. Not as good as our local bar’s chorizo.
Walked back to the car past loads of fab looking restaurants.
Disappointing. Would I go back? No

Lunch with a view
Jul 2018 • Friends
This was our second visit to Faro. Having searched for a lunch restaurant with a view we came across this bar/cafe. The food is good, beer good and the view is superb overlooking the Ria Formosa . It's a little slow with service this is due to the kitchen only starting up around lunch time.

Bad service at its worst
Jul 2018 • Couples
We visited this place yesterday evening at 9 and hoped to get some nice drinks and tapas. The service however was very inattentive - we had to ask 4 times over 30mins for the menu and more times until we got our wine. We didn’t feel welcomed at all. We can’t recommend this place. Look for some else place where guests are really welcomed.

We went there for a beer(me), coffee(girlfriend)... the view there is spectacular...
The coffee was good and the have a big menu for alcoholic and other refreshing drinks to have with the view...

Prices are totally reasonable for this location...
-Bottle of Heineken 2,5€
-Espresso 1€

Will definitely go there again for a drink and view, before going to dinner somewhere else nearby...
