We were greeted by a very spacious and impressive interior. What I liked least were the obligatory starters, which were costly (charging 3 EUR for a bread roll and a drop of oil and vinegar is inappropriate). However, the food was delicious, sirloin steak was...More

After a less-than-brilliant first meal in Faro (including pretty much inedible, maize-covered strips of tough squid), we spotted Faz Gostos while ambling around the old city. Pretty much my first observation when perusing the menu was that the starter of grilled goat cheese with honey...More
