We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner last night, not least because of the professional way we were looked after by a team of waiters. We had different steaks - both were first class. The clam starter, recommended by one of the waiters, was very tasty. The...More

Very dissappointing - I'm confused as to why this is in the Michelin guide. The food was pretty bland and unseasoned. The salads that came with some of the dishes was crude and unnecessary. All in all it was a very mediocre experience - not...More

Billed as fanciest in Faro, this is an impressive space, airy and well laid out, with attentive staff (though rather frazzled when busy). Classy restaurant and food good though not exceptional, but not madly expensive either. Nice evening, worth the visit but once probably enough.
