Very tasty food! Our waiter was lovely, very attentive and gave great recommendations. The fig cake was beautiful! The only downside was the extra charge for bread and appetisers that are brought to your table as soon as you sit down! That aside, we would...More

The setting inside an old wine cellar with high ceilings is impressive and the best ending to a walk within the old city walls. I went for the codfish (nobody else do codfish as the Portuguese) with scallops and the presentation was good, the portion...More

After a less-than-brilliant first meal in Faro (including pretty much inedible, maize-covered strips of tough squid), we spotted Faz Gostos while ambling around the old city. Pretty much my first observation when perusing the menu was that the starter of grilled goat cheese with honey...More

Ok, first thing to realize is that this might be the finest restaurant in Faro. That said, the experience we had was something to remember. The food: regular tourist stuff. The service: something that you have to experience yourself. It's difficult to explain, but by...More
