Early dinner to enjoy the sunset from the window, we chose the gourmet tasting menu, which is a 5 course set menu, (price 35€) together with a wine selection Portuguese sparkling wine, white, red and porto(15€). We all enjoyed the variety of dishes and the choice of... More

The food is top quality we dined here twice and both times the food was delicious and the service was flawless. The tasting menu is great with generous portions filled with flavour. The only negative is that this restaurant is not higher on TripAdvisor and could be missed as a result

Wow, the tasting menu is fabulous! we visited early on a Thursday evening so were able to get a table without a reservation.

Pricey of course but good value in... More

We visited the place for drinks and although very expensive the drinks were great and the service perfect. The view, however, is hard to find anywhere else in Faro.

We stayed in the Hotel Faro for a long weekend with the intention of eating out in different places but the food here was so good we didn't really need to leave the hotel. Highly recommend the tasting menu and the Sunday Brunch.

We were very disappointed in the service. It made our experience unpleasant. First time in Faro that we didn't enjoy our visit. Food is good but pricey. Would not go back.

The Ria Formosa Lounge Bar and Restaurant, on the Hotel Faro's rooftop terrace, afford a breathtaking panoramic view over the city and the Ria Formosa. Regardless of the time of day or the season, this is always a sophisticated and inviting place in which to relax by yourself or socialise with others. An extensive selection of high-quality breakfast items are served here from 7.00 am to 10.00 am(Monday to Friday) at the Weekend the breakfast items are served from 7.30 am to 10.30 am. Lunch at the Ria Formosa Restaurant is served from 12.30 pm to 3 pm. This is the perfect place for both businesspeople and groups of friends to have lunch or to relax after a visit to the city's historical sites. Dinner is served from 7.30 pm to 10.30 pm, but we suggest you arrive in plenty of time to enjoy a pre-dinner drink or cocktail while you marvel at the magnificent sunset.
