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 were two couples, having dinner in Portimao in October 2022. The hotel recommended the F restaurant. It was up a flight of stairs, and we sat at a table that overlooked the beach (although it was dark and we couldn't see much), Food was...good, it was a nice ambiance, and great service. Price was reasonable. Overall it was a good place to have dinner in Portimao.More

We found this restaurant by a happy accident and were lucky to get a table on the terrace without a reservation. The staff were extremely friendly and took us in 30 minutes before they opened. The view is the best we had from any restaurant...in Algarve: you can see the beach and the sunset. It was nice to notice that the staff seemed to enjoy working there: we were there from the beginning and it was nice to hear them having fun while working. This conveys to the service they provide: it was cheerful and friendly but professional. They have comprehensive menu and so many things we would have liked to taste. We chosed monk fish risotto and portuguese steak and they were both very very good. The bread we ordered was so good we had to eat it all. The dessert menu sounded very good but we were so full from the bread and our main courses that we couldn't taste it this time. The prices were pretty low when compared to the quality of food. I totally recommend to eat here. The whole experience was amazing and we hope that we would have had a bit more time to enjoy a whole course here.More

This was a return visit after four years away and memories of a great meal. We were not disappointed as the service was still excellent, menu included diverse choices ( not only fish) . Attentive, professional staff and well-presented and flavoursome food ( we had...oysters, octopus and sweet potato cataplana and monkfish and prawn rissotto). Thank you to all for another memorable experience.More

I’d give this place a 6 if I could. Wonderful ambiance, music, service but most all the food. I had the Portuguese steak which is for sure one of the top 10 meals I’ve had anywhere in the world. My wife had the fish which...was amazing as well. Don’t pass this place by it is first class in every respect!More

Tomahawk steak was excellent, as were the sides that accompanied it. Wine was good, the cocktails were just ok. Sadly (having booked in advance too) we were seated on time, but waited 25 minutes for a menu and 55 minutes in total to get a...drink (even just water) we weren't in a rush but this just put a little downer on our last night. The food came quickly after, but we would have liked to enjoy the view with a drink in hand! The price was reasonable given the quality of food!More

We went to Restaurant F 3 times in the week were in Praia da Rocha if that is any indication of how much we loved it! The beet risotto was AMAZING!! I had it all 3 times being a vegetarian and that was the only...entree I could get, but I did not mind, it was that good! My daughter had all three of the meat dishes and loved them all! The vegetable cream soup is delicious. Also loved the chili margarita. The staff remembered us on our second visit which was nice. The staff goes above and beyond. Could not have enjoyed ourselves more in the beautiful setting!!!More

We ate here on our last night. We were worried as we headed toward it as there are a lot of noisy bars etc around it but once up the stairs and on the terrace the view was lovely. The food was really good and...well presented. We were lucky to be outside which made the experience great. The service was a little slow at times but we were not in a rush. The only thing that tainted it a bit was they added cocktails that we had not had to the bill - which we noticed but it did make us wonder if others get charged 'extras' and do not notice.More

The food was great! We loved the rubia and portuguese beefs and the tuna tartare! The desserts were very good as well! However, the service is what makes me put a 4 stars…! More warmth from the waiter and waitress is needed. The chef, however,...was very kind.More
