Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came here on a recommendation, and the restaurant did not disappoint. The location, right next to the sea, is excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the appetisers were delicious. We both had seafood starters. The prawns were probably the best we’d ever...tasted: expertly cooked, with a hint of smokiness and citrus. The oysters were served imaginatively and were very fresh, though would have benefited from a garnish. Luckily Tabasco was on hand. The cataplana was the star of the evening. We were in awe of how fish, potatoes, clams and prawns could all be so delicious and perfectly cooked in the same dish. The cataplana easily serves two, with room for more. A good citrus pudding ended the meal. Wine was competent - a big list - and port and tonic served well.More

Great location and fantastic service. We’ve visited this place with 11 friends and enjoyed the food, drinks and beachview.

We have been here for a month. It’s a very friendly area. Lovely beach. Plenty places to eat and drink, 2 Supermarkets, Spar and Baptist’s. Good cheap bus service, but very limited if any at the weekends. Taxis and Uber in the local area very...reasonable. We visited Lagos a few times also to shop (Aldi, Lidl, Pingo Doce, Intermarche, Continete €1.60 each on bus or about €10-12 Uber/Taxi Accommodation prices drop by mid September/October. It’s about 60mile from Faro airport. When we leave in a few days we are getting taxi to Lagos €10-15 then coach from Lagos to Lisbon €10-€20 each depending what time of day or how busy it is. Then fly homeMore

Usually this is the place I would come and enjoy a drink. Today was quite terrible. Poor service. It wasn’t busy, the service was terrible. Waited over 25 mins for a drink. The sangria was at the bar ready for ages. Not great. Disappointing.

This restaurant is one of the best I've ever been to, so much so my father wanted to cancel all our other restaurant bookings for our week in Porto and just eat here every night! The atmosphere is trendy and sophisticated, the staff are excellent,...and the food is the best I've ever eaten. Not just one or two stand out dishes; every single dish was a triumph. The service is at a relaxed pace so prepare to spend several hours here mulling over wine and enjoying the glorious views.More

His is a place to hide if you want a low key relaxing time. Not a lot to see or do, but a beautiful little town with a nice beach and of course good food.

This is not a fast food restaurant! If what you want is excellent food, in a beautiful location, and unhurried service which lets you enjoy the food and your conversation, rather than rushing you out of the door, this is pretty perfect.

Great service, Paula we thought was great in helping with the food & wine choices. We chose two sharing dishes, to start we had the tiger prawns and then for the main we had the tomahawk steak, both were great. The portions sizes are generous...so be careful not to order too much. The timing between courses was great. We were served in the upper restaurant and not the lower terrace. We did note some of the reviews with low marks, but I can only say try it for yourself and hopefully you will have the same experience as us, great place to eat.More

How can it take 1.5 hours to bring a can of Coca Cola, I’m genuinely astounded at how poor the service here is, it would have been quicker to walk back to my Air BnB and fetch a can myself

Food lovely. Fantastic views, but service was poor. We had booked a table, as we had heard this was a great place for a meal and sunset views, which it was. However, the service let it down. We were seated, and had to ask to...be give a menu, after other tables around us were seated and served before us. This became a common occurrence whenever we wanted to order, and we had to keep calling over staff for ordering and to follow up drinks. Meanwhile, we were brought some bread and dips, which was a nice touch, but we only realised at the end that you are charged for this. The food was lovely, and the views are astounding. We had the steak and the fish seafood stew, which were both stunning. €30 a dish is more than central prices, but happy to pay it. Overall, lovely food, views were great, but the service lets this place down. I think if we’d have left without paying, no one would have noticed. Note that there is a beach bar under the main restaurant, which is part of the restaurant. It does play loud club music, which is fine for us, but not ideal if it isn’t your thingMore

Cod Carpaccio didn’t have any taste. The pasta was almost cold when arrived to our table and it took 30 mins to receive a 2nd beer ordered after lunch, despite reminding the waiters a couple of times.
