We ate at this restaurant for its proximity to our apartment in Rocha Brava. It's within easy walking distance. The waiter was very earnest, however the food did not quite live up to expectations. The tiger prawns were over cooked and my steak was very rare, although I asked for medium rare. Quite expensive too.

Extremely good local food at very good prices. Fish of the day come round on a platter and are well worth having. You need to book because it's always busy.

We were a party of 13 and were shown a long row of tables in a cramped room which obviously could not accommodate all of the customers comfortably. The waiter took our orders for the starters and after a short wait my king prawns with garlic butter arrived..... Presentation was poor and the food was bland not good for £8.95!... More

A family run establishment situated near the lighthouse road. This is a great place for fish. Fernando will come round with a salver showing you the daily catch. It is always very popular because of the Rocha Brava complex just around the corner so you will have to book in advance at the height of season.

Our second visit was as good as our first. Friendly informative service without being overpowering. Good range of fresh fish and meat dishes with generous portions. Lovely atmosphere with a log fire in the cooler months. Just remember cash only as they don't take cards.

The food at this restaurant is excellent. Great choice too. The have a selection of fresh fish which they bring to show you and tell you how they can be cooked....on or off the bone, with or without garlic. Nothing is too much trouble. The special cream cake is a must, as are the peri peri prawns for starters. The... More

This little gem of a place is opposite the equally impressive Rocha mar. Jardim offers excellent quality food and service at reasonable prices. The interior is warm and welcoming, the waiters helpful and knowledgeable. The fresh fish is highly recommended but you wouldn't be disappointed if you chose different. I recommend this place very highly.

After three years we returned to Jardim do Farol and were not disappointed. Good food, service and knowledge of the menu. It is starting to get a little pricey though, but still a nice evening out.
