We both opted for the sole and it was delicious and just fell off the bone. We were given a complimentary bottle of Aqua Ria house wine which was also delicious. The veg could have been better but the fish more than made up for that. I didn't have a pudding but my OH did and he opted for 'Creme'... More

Quite surprised by so many bad reviews. We visited this restaurant last week. I did want a cataplana while I was in Faro, but most restaurants seem only to make it for 2. However, the gentleman outside the restaurant said it would be no problem to make it for 1. So the visit to this restaurant was not planned and... More

We went here on New Year's eve and were staying at the attached hotel. We were not asked at any point what we would like to drink. Guests at the hotel are offered 'free' wine with the expensive meal - red wine was put on our table as most people were eating meat not fish. The restaurant was full that... More

The place was nice, maybe not as stylish as they were trying to pretend but good enough. The food was pleasant, we had a good fish cataplana. The staff was friendly.

We ordered meat and prawns on a skewer. It was delivered cold. We sent it back. It came out cold again. Sent back for a second time and we got a less than positive response from a waiter. The problem seems to be the waiting staff and not the kitchen. We could see staff getting frustrated that cooked orders weren't... More

The guy was out hustling and in the absence of many good restaurants in Faro, we decided to give it a whirl. After getting us into the place, we were sat down and left alone without menus for 10 minutes, had to call the waiter over and remind him after he was fussing around another table who arrived after us....

I have read some of the other reviews and I am quite surprised as I had a positive experience. I approached the restaurant to view the tank situated near the entrance to the restaurant,where lobsters and crabs are displayed.I imagine you can choose your food.Lobster costs €90. A man who must be the manager came up to myself and my... More

This restaurant is located on a great spot, the terrace looks good, there's some detail put into the table set - so, everything to go right. Right? Wrong!! The service simply destroys what could be a good experience. What a disappointment! They sure took time to bring the menu - I had to ask for it, actually (not without being... More

It is almost first bar in mane street it could be the reason why so many people stop there and unfortunately get poison by... More

We sat outside. It was very nice. The service was good. The table was unstable and I had to place a knife under one of the legs. We ordered the rice with seafood. It was served very hot and somewhat tasty. I felt it was salty. Also the size of the seafood was very small, small clams, oysters, etc. After... More
