Small unique place, down a little side road. Clean but pretty basic setting. Excellent staff and really friendly. Given tasters which was a plus. I had sea bream and my partner had golden grill which was fresh and full of flavour, and last but not least the customer service was excellent.

Great and friendly staff with complimentary extras throughout the meal but the actual food was only ok. It was the first time I have ever been served baby squid with the cartilage (like plastic) left inside instead of cleaned out. Tell the kitchen prep its not good. Almond liquor at the end was tasty. Thanks

This restaurant definitely deserves the search in Faro. It's 5-10 min. walk from the central area and you'll need a map. The place is small, but organized with a taste. Prices are affordable compared to other locations in the region. The waiter spoke excellent English and dedicated extra time to explain us some of the local food traditions. The sea... More

Went in for a honeymoon meal and absolutely loved the food here. Great variety and unbelievable value. I had calamari fries to start with and veal bitoque as a main. They gave us buckets of food and it was all delish. I highly recommend this place. Great friendly staff as well, they gave us free drinks and free food just... More

Simple local restaurant serving simple food, friendly staff but it lacks ambience. Inexpensive. Was rated # 1 in Faro but this is definitely not appropriate in my opinion. Having said that we enjoyed our simple meal. THORVIEW.

We decided on this restaurant based on previous reviews/ratings, but unfortunately we were completely underwhelmed. We first ordered bread, butter and olives for a starter (for 3 people). We got 3 small pieces of bread, old mushy olives and the butter was 1 plastic packet of butter like you get with your meal on an airplane! The main dish was... More

If you are travelling abroad but want to feel like home,go to find (Tasca do)Ricky. We went there on our first day in Faro and could not receive a better welcome in PT.

Went here with friends, an excellent Portugese restaurant, we all decided on the Cataplana which the waiter said would do 3 & he was right, it was washed down with a couple of bottles of Gatao vinho verde which were good - altogether a very pleasant experience
