I had liked the look of the menu from outside but when we went inside it was a giant greenhouse (sweaty to sit inside), the waiter had no enthusiasm, and they said they had run out of most dishes - it was only about 7pm! So me and my partner ended up ordering the same meal, if we hadn't been... More

Just had the best dining experience of my trip. Martine, you have an amazing establishment! The seafood soup and octopus rice were amazing. The atmosphere is relaxing and inviting. Highly recommended for any occasion I can think of!

This restaurant may not seem much from outside, but don't be put off, it's lovely. Opens in to a huge internal garden. The waiting staff were wonderful. They made meal suggestions and explained all the dishes thoroughly. We opted for one of their recommendations - the monkfish and prawn kebabs. Absolutely delicious. If ever in faro city again, I'd be... More

One of so many lovely looking seafood restaurants in beautiful Faro - this one was our favourite after we were given a lunchtime tour by a helpful waiter. We headed back that evening and had a cracking dinner. Huge inside with an outside area for when really hot - we thought it was warm enough for us but the staff... More

This is why we chose this restaurant. We needed an early dinner. The staff was very attentive, but not overly so. The room was pleasant and clean. We were also entertained by a cat, sleeping on the see through roof! The food was ok, not great. The goat stew was flavourful, and the mixed grill ( meat) was adequate. The... More

We ate here for a late Xmas Day lunch. Very few places open but this, and the restaurant next door, was. Plenty of tables, larger inside than it looks. Large menu choice. I went for the roast baby goat. I kid you not! Food fine, service variable. One waiter (luckily ours) superbly efficient, the rest were amusing to watch! Locals... More

We were tempted in here by the waiter outside showing us the fresh sea bass. My wife loves sea bass but hates bones so we asked if it could be filleted for her which they said no problem. When the fish arrived it was still fully on the bone but one of the waiters obliged by dissecting it for her... More

Had a meal here early in the holiday and with expereince and hindsight it was in my opnion overpriced. The fish was OK - the vegetables were also Ok - service was good so that made up for some of the pricing.

Over last 25 years have eaten here many times. On our last visit several years ago it still had the original Portuguese feel to it but on this visit it has been stripped away leaving a rather garish decor. Food still worth a try though they are going to have to stop serving it lukewarm. Pity really- it seems that... More
