Please see my main review of the Hotel Faro.In short, pushy waiters, very slow service and overpriced food. There are much better restaurants locally which are cheaper, faster and better.

We visited this place recently and enjoyed a lovely fresh fish dish which was very tasty and served hot with freshly cooked vegetables. The service was excellent and the waiters were very pleasant. Will definitely return if we get the opportunity.
