Regardless of the time of day or the season, this is always a sophisticated and inviting place in which to relax by yourself or socialise with others.

This is a magical restaurant with its rooftop restaurant and excellent food. Our waiters were friendly and attentive as well as helpful . The dinner was wonderful especially the seafood. Having mentioned that we had saved this restaurant until our last night because it was our 26th wedding anniversary, at the end the waiters all brought a special dessert to us with a candle and congratulations written beautifully around the cake. The presentation on all our dishes was very fine. Thank you for making our occasion special

If in the Algarve its worth going to Faro on Sunday and enjoy quite possibly the best Brunch in the area.
Brunch starts at 12 noon and gets busy so make sure you book.
The food is excellent and the view is a nice bonus!

Executive Chef “Pedro” was there today and not only are his team’s cooking skills excellent he is the perfect host too!

This brunch deserves a 6th STAR!

Rio Formosa restaurant is situated on the top level of the Faro Hotel. The hotel is right near the water's edge so the view from the top is every changing and includes a view of the final flight path for the airport (one of my favorite things about the place). First up, the service in the restaurant was very professional and punched above its weight for a regional offering. The team were attentive without being intrusive, but willing to have a chat when engaged. Food wise, chef is using local produce and using innovative presentation techniques such as coral and clam shaped crockery. The only downside we felt was the price which is on the high side for a set menu in Pt. However, the overall is experience is top notch.

We had been gere before for beers but never for lunch. So tried one Saturday- no starters but 2 main courses - curried prawns with almonds and seafood tagliatelle. Followed by 2 puddings, fruit salad and chocolate brownie with tangerine ice cream, yummy. With a bottle of water and red wine the bill was 72 euros. Less than expected considering the location. Great service too.
