We had dorade and a vegetarian curry dish that were terrific. Oh, did I mention the Arepas? If we had asked for these appetizers to be served earlier, we just may have ordered a bushel of them and nothing else. They are not to be missed. As we were some of the first customers to arrive for lunch, we had a chance to talk with the proprietors, Sky and Jenn, and learn their story. Lovely couple! We will be back again for sure.

Faro needs more restaurants like Céu. I had the tasting menu at this unpretentious, open concept, outstanding restaurant. Chef Sky and his partner Jen are skilled professionals; providing a dining experience that is warm and inviting, but not fussy. The culinary aspect of the experience is straightforward and delicious, the service is impeccable, the atmosphere impeccably executed, and the check lands softly. Having this eatery in my hometown is what this diner has been hoping for, for a long time. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

Exciting, high quality food combined with a friendly, informal dining experience that is sure to leave you wanting more. The chefs Michelin star background is abundantly clear in everything that leaves the kitchen, combining a heady mix of South East Asian and South American flavours from the owners heritage. On arrival, we were met by an enthusiastic, friendly host and an open kitchen with a solitary man behind the stove. The kitchen seamlessly blends into the dining room, enabling diners to gain insight into the amount of effort and precision that goes into the plates that arrive before them. The waitress explained the menu is full and was extremely knowledgeable about the dishes on offer. No request was too great. No question too silly. Excellent service all night long. We shared 2 starters, had a main each and a bottle of red. All of which came to just over €80. We left in amazement that a similar meal of much lower quality would be far more expensive back home in the UK. To top the night off, once service had slowed, the chef made his rounds and chatted to us at our table. Obviously we were nothing but complimentary at the stunning food we had just enjoyed. We had never met the chef that had just cooked our dinner before! Utterly delicious. Beautifully simple. This truly unique spot is a must visit during your time in Faro!

We weren't sure what to expect but had heard some good comments about this restaurant from friends. We were totally blown away by the food and the overall experience. The food was wonderful, but we appreciated that the chef really wanted to hear our thoughts on each dish. We had the chef's tasting menu, which at 33 euros was an outstanding value. Thai oyster for the amuse bouche. Then pulled pork arepas, followed by friend gambas. Then a main course of your choice and a large dessert sampler plate to share. Too much food frankly, but we ate everything anyway. Service was friendly and attentive. I really hope this restaurant gains a strong following, and I know we will be back.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE. Food is exceptional, very fresh and creative. Service is relaxed while also attentive, creating the perfect informal fine dining experience. Dined here twice over a week’s stay in Faro and could not fault at all. Both of us who dined were vegan and the owners were extremely accommodating, however they can provide further choices if you mention when booking! If you stay in Faro it is an absolute must!

We stayed in Lagos for 2 nights and heard Céu was a good place for dinner. What we didn't know was that we were going to LOVE the food and owners so much that we would even cancel our earlier train the next day to go back for lunch! The first time we had the chef's signature menu. Here we were first amazed with the well balanced portion sizes, as well as the amount of flavour presented on each plate. It really felt like a scavenger hunt, trying all the different ingredients 😍. We were also well tended to and received dedicated attention from Jen. We very much enjoyed the open kitchen setting and enjoyed the interaction with the chef (Sky) and the kitchen staff. The next day we went for lunch and ordered a la carte. This time we tried a few new things all of which were divine! We had a great time and even had to rush at the end to catch our train. All in all, we highly recommend having dinner here! The price to quality ratio is amazing. The food is well timed, personal and energetic service, friendly people and an overall good vibe. We would describe the food as South American and Asian with a Caribbean twist!✨

Excellent food, Caribbean/Asian fusion flavours and well plated. We had the arepas which were amazing, some polenta batons, gyozas and the jerk chicken main. All excellent. This is run by Sky and Ann, the well-travelled couple who have perfected these dishes and more. The wine list is good. We paid about 75 euros for food and two glasses of wine. The venue is located on a mundane sidestreet and the inside decor is minimal. The one small disappointment was that we had booked it to celebrate our wedding anniversary (while in Faro). This was acknowledged by Ceu when we booked but not a word was said on the actual evening. It would have been a nice touch to congratulate us.

If you’re looking for a fresh and delicious lunch break in beautiful Faro, this is it! The chef and his lovely partner will host you and feed you the most beautiful and delightful flavors of the seasons. All the ingredients are top notch with a five-star presentation and the portions reasonable so that you can try a little bit of everything! The octopus dish will probably be the best kind you’ve ever had. Don’t miss on the desserts and the wine pairings. A reservation is recommended but if like us, you forgot, they will likely accommodate you within 30min or so. **LGBTQI+ friendly**

Really enjoyed our evening here, we were welcomed by a pleasant waitress that introduced everything we ate with great enthusiasm. We mostly chose the signature tasting menu, with 4 courses. An oyster to start, arepa with pulled pork, prawns and then whatever main you like! I chose the tuna steak which was amazing ! My partner had the beef! Both served on a plate with different purée. The chefs dessert to share was created with a vision of the sky as the name of the restaurant is ‘ceu’ ‘heaven’ in Portuguese we had coffee which was beautiful and a complimentary ‘blondie’ brownie made and introduced by one of the chefs! Everyone Loved it!!!!

This restaurant is marvellous. The dishes are not only extraordinary tasty but also made with superb attention to detail. What you receive here is on par with restaurants wearing Michelin stars in terms of presentation and perfectionism. The service is also extremely attentive. At the same time you get some really honest food. No out of space „just because you can“ creations but proper dishes and decent amounts. The prices are more than reasonable leaving you with a full and happy belly and without a headache for your wallet. You can feel that the owners‘ hearts are beating for their profession in every little detail. If you are looking for something extraordinary, this restaurant is the place to go in Faro.

My friend and I came here and had the most wonderful time!! We can’t recommend it enough. Everything the hostess, chef, and dessert chef did had so much thought out into it. For some INCREDIBLE food, the prices were quite modest. The dishes we had included the Thai quinoa salad, octopus, green tea mojito, Ceu signature cocktail. There were multiple vegan and vegetarian options as well.

We had a really warm welcome at Ceu, the service was exceptional. The wines were good and the menu provided an amazing experience. We had prawns in coconut to start and Thai fish cakes both had exceptional flavours, could have just eaten the prawns all night. We choose the beef which was from Brazil and to die for. The plate of food was laid out beautifully with polenta chips and carrot and bean purées. The dessert was so tasty it was crispy banana with lemongrass caramel and vanilla ice cream. This was our last meal of the week during our visit to Faro, so glad we didn’t miss this outstanding experience. Every course was explained to us and great care was taken in the presentation of every plate of food. This young couple deserve success in their venture and hope to see them on our next visit to Faro.

Someone had recommended Ceu, so we decided to check it out. Jen greeted us with a huge “hello” and warm smile immediately as we walked in. The restaurant isn’t large, and it has a nice ambiance, with a wonderful open kitchen. The owner/chef also engaged with us to discuss the menu offerings; the menu was intriguing and they both guided us in our decisions. A few standouts were the Tuna Carpaccio, Drunken Plaintains, and the Octopus. The food was artistically presented, but more importantly, delicious! I look for three primary qualities in a great restaurant — food quality, personality, and overall experience. Ceu exceeded expectations across the board. I look forward to returning soon.

Excellent food and fantastic service. If there is one thing to do whilst visiting Faro, visit this restaurant, you will not be disappointed. Sky and Jenni are passionate about providing an excellent dining experience for all their clients and a variety of options for all dietary requirements including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. The artistic plating and attention to details by Sky is so extraordinary that during our 3 night stay in Faro we dined at the restaurant on 2 occasions. Jenni welcomed us with open arms on both occasions and they both made us feel like we were dining in their own home. Please open a restaurant in Edinburgh!
