Ate here on a Monday night in October when choice in Faro is limited. Walked around the harbour, past a boatyard and in through a tired hedge. Service was slow but fine. Starter of oysters arrived first after a 30 minute wait while my wife's...More

What a great seafood and fish at a reasonable price. Good portions and really tasty. The views were great and the staff was even better. If you go to Faro you shouldn't miss this place.

We walked half a hour to eat there. On the internet they advertise they are open until 16.00. We arrived at 14.45, but did not get a table. They said close soon at 15.00. I think this kind of habit is zero.
