We had dinner at Farol with our 50-person tour group. Service was excellent, and the food was scrumptious! The restaurant easily accommodated our huge group.

The best seafood restaurant I have been too in many years and I have eaten all over the world. So fresh and perfectly prepared. Not smart but you go for the quality of the seafood

We wanted to cross the Ponte to see Cristo Rei and were told by a local chap that we should eat at Farol before taking the ferry back. Brilliant experience, cold beers and wine. Bountiful amounts of seafood for Euro 44 for two of us....More

We went here because of the good reviews. My bifana was dry. My mom's octopus was close to being over cooked. Server got so upset, almost throwing a tantrum, when I asked for separate bill.

The "Farol" is a century-old restaurant, the oldest in Setubal and is known for good beer and good seafood, from their own aquariums. With a cozy atmosphere and a great ''Tejo'' river and Lisbon's view, it's a great place to be.The name "Farol" came from the lighthouse's existence in Cacilhas who once helped navigation of small boats,called "Cacilheiros".Cacilheiros are an easy transport to lots of people in Lisbon to the other side of the Tagus river. You can combine the great tour with the excelence to be able to lunch or dinner in Cacilhas and taste our fish or seafood.
