Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

We were a group of 8 and stopped here one night after a failed attempt to find this restaurant on another night.

It is a little hard to find but well worth the effort in Old Faro.

Here is everything we ordered, and I’ve highlighted the truly magical ones!!

Borrata cheese with tomatoes and truffle oil , goat cheese with honey and almonds , Portuguese chorizo, mushrooms with thyme, potato smoke with aili, Camembert with nuts, and pear and anis, cured salmon, sausage pillows, sous vide duck, stuffed mushrooms, pork cheeks.

Great night with great service!! Well worth it!!

Found this bistro by “accident”. Lovely tasty good. The stuffed mushrooms were tasty, the duck was very good. A small and welcoming restaurant.

After reading all the other reviews I really didn't expect to be writing this review after our visit to the restaurant. Perhaps our expectations were too high, but unfortunately our experience was one of disappointment. As other reviewers have pointed out your first impression is a very quirky restaurant with an individual style, however the food let it down. We did experience slow service with drinks taking a while to arrive, but there are only three people working and we didn't mind waiting, now the important bit the food. It is recommended that you select 4 dishes for 2 people and this is where the problem started, the menu is limited and one of the dishes we wanted was not available, we were only told this after our order had be taken and given to the kitchen. We had ordered the chorizo sausage, home cured salmon, garlic prawns and potatoes with smoked aliola. Unfortunately the salmon was not available so we ordered the emmental stuffed mushrooms. The chorizo sausage, was very tough and difficult to chew, the garlic prawns were excellent, the potatoes were average, not enough smoked aliola to make them interesting and the mushrooms were watery and had not be cooked for long enough. I appreciate they are working in very small kitchen, but with a limited menu we expected better. This was our first dinner in Faro and it was to celebrate my wife's birthday, very disappointing.

Another fantastic dining experience at Silvia and Fabio's bistro. Quality of chorizo sausage, potatoes with smoked alioli, goats cheese with walnuts/honey and smoked salmon were excellent. Washed down with copos of recommended vino tinto and the best port ever tasted, we had a fantastic evening. Highly recommend visiting Bistro 31 when in Faro, you'll not be disappointed. Thanks again Silvia and Fabio for making our last night in the Algarve so special.
Cheers Mike and Lesley

Service was great and the food was delicious and definitely homemade. The chef/owner was very friendly. I would recommend the goat cheese and honey and the garlic prawns
