So, I have to say that it was not our first choice, as it was further from our hotel, but we ended up in this restaurant and we loved it! The owner and waiting staff are all lovely people that took excellent care of us all evening. The food was delicious and their advice regarding wine was perfect! No regret,... More

We had a pre-christmas break in Faro and visited Tasco da Ricky for dinner on our last night. We ate quite early - 7.30 - and were the only customers in the restaurant, hence service was excellent. The young waiter was chatty and friendly and spoke good english. The restaurant is located down a side street, tucked away rather, and... More

Popped-in here for lunch before catching the train from the nearby station and was not disappointed. Very warm welcome from Ricky himself. Plate of fresh and tasty panfried flatfish (dab?), rice and salad, small beer and coffee only 6.50 EUR. Excellent value.

An amazing meal and Ricky, the restaurant's owner, was wonderful. He even took the the time to play with our son. Definitely worth visiting if you are in Faro.

We went hear for lunch on the last day of our trip. Wish we had found it sooner, as the food was really tasty and the staff very welcoming. We had the seafood cataplana and as well as being the tastiest i have ever eaten it was also the cheapest for the area, so a win win situation. Would definitely... More

We had an evening meal at Tasca do Ricky. The food seemed rather simplistic but was tasty, although some things where overwhelmed by the excessive use of garlic. Prices reasonable given the quality. Friendly service. A cod fish croquette was provided as an amuse bouche which was very tasty, although slightly cold. We were also provided a complimentary Portuguese almond... More

We went here for dinner on recommendations from a friend and read here. We were not disappointed, the service was excellent, Ricky and Tiago were really friendly and good fun and we were served several extras on the house which was a lovely touch. We both had a great meal, main course and dessert both excellent and then a liqueur... More

During our 3 nights stay in Faro it was the most outstanding place :) food, service everything was brilliant. I loved the seafood rice! Probably will come back one day to Faro to this restaurant just to try this dish again:)
