A nice bar in the centre of town overlooking the harbour. Inside and outside seating serving a variety of wines, spirits and beers, all reasonably priced. No food. A pleasant place to spend a couple of hours chatting and drinking any time of the year.

Visited twice during our stay, wine and cocktails with some light meals or nibbles. Novel idea having the menu printed as a newspaper

Lovely bar with very friendly staff. We wanted to watch a six nations rugby game and the staff were happy to... More

Great bar, full of atmosphere and very helpful staff. We are cocktail virgins, but the staff were very helpful by discussing what we liked and making some amazing drinks in the most unusual glasses. We came here on several evenings in January and enjoyed a few after dinner drinks.

We were sitting outside with view onto the marina, slightly obstructed by the party tent erected for the soccer cup, but that's not a permanent feature. There are heat lamps which were much appreciated as it was January. We had whiskey and a white wine.

A really cool place that takes cocktail making seriously. The effort that goes into making the cocktails is lovingly demonstrated. Vast menu on offer, but if you fancy something different just tell the barman what your favourite drink is and you'll get a special one made up just for you. Busy every night with locals so there's always a great... More

Everything's about this place oozed cool. The format of the cocktail menu, the music choice, the presentation of the staff. The cocktails themselves were incredible. The strongest Long Island iced tea I've ever had!!! As we went on a winter holiday Faro was quiet and there wasn't a lot happening. This bar kept us entertained for two nights, really enjoyed...

Lovely bar in beautiful building, centre of Faro location. Very popular with locals and tourists. Drinks menu is in form of newspapers...so quirky! Bar tenders seemed very friendly, cocktails were delicious with twist. You can also do wine tasting here, with a wide range of wines on offer. You can purchase cigarettes and cigars here too, the good old fashioned... More
