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.

This place is recommended by local hoteliers as a 'locals' favourite. I doubt it.. we've stayed in Faro for a week and have been overwhelmed by the brilliance of the food. This was our worst night - cost us 3x anywhere else for mediocre food...More

WE booked in and had a meal in the evening.... best to reserve as really busy with locals. A proper slightly disorganised Portuguese fish restaurant where you even get to pick your fresh fish
