Food was excellent, a little more expensive than some other menus we looked at but this was soon overlooked by the quality of the food & Service

While the service was great at the beginning of the evening it when totally wrong at the end of the evening where we had to wait a lot to get the last dish Also the food was okay but really nothing special deserving the higher price you pay nothing differentiating it from other Portuguese restaurants

We had made a booking at this place online, which we changed later. no hassles. The restaurant is in Old Faro. The service is impeccable - worthy of Michelin star restaurant it is. The staff was courteous and food arrived promptly. Decor was also great. The food wasn't bad, but nothing wow. We enjoyed it nevertheless. So food is 3... More

So three maybe four years since we have been to this wonderful restaurant in Faro, and having no directions to it (did not do my research), only remembering it was within the castle grounds. So found it (eventually) as we were determined. So decided on anchovy salad to begin, a fish stew with clams and schrimp (delish), chocolate pudding to... More

Visited last May and happy to return just before Xmas. Staff friendly and efficient. An excellent wine recommended to accompany my lamb. Served by the glass. The classiest restaurant we have been to in Faro. Lovely situation in the old town, nice decoration too. Not cheap but not the most expensive either. Good value. We will be back! Not to... More

My family and I just dined here, and were really excited to have a nice meal; however, this restaurant proved to be a total disappointment. The food was decent - with the exception that my brother ordered a medium rare steak and got an extremely BLUE one...he sent it back, and it was returned quite bloody rare - but it... More

Chose the set lunch. For 15€, this was a steal! We had a starter, a main dish (I had pork cheeks... very tender!), wine, water, dessert, and coffee. Mostly delicious, but I questioned why the mains came with fries AND rice... the fries, as in all of Portugal, was not up to crispy standards. Soggy is how they make their... More

We found this restaurant by accident whilst wandering around the Old Town of Faro, after reading the menu we decided it was too good to miss for a late lunch. We absolutely loved it, the décor, atmosphere, service, food - all excellent. The price - 15 euros for a 3 course meal with wine and coffee - was such good... More

Were there two days ago for dinner. Food, service & atmosphere were really nice. From what I have seen in Faro city center, that looks like the best place to dine.
