This has to be the most deceptive spot in Faro...
Located within the market complex, this unfancy treat-of-a-place is frequented by everyone and anyone, including – we are told – the town’s lawyers...
A fabulous local spot with a cosy feel and lots of pot plants. The delightful staff serve honest, home-style fare including rabbit, goat and seafood dishes...
This simple place has been here for 32 years so it must be doing something right...
Give the taste buds a break from meat and fish dishes and veg out (literally) at this Zen-like vegetarian restaurant...
Dishing up simply grilled fish and meat, this popular place has plenty of country charm. It has a lofty beamed ceiling, rustic cooking implements on display and long, communal tables and bench seats...
Overlooking the marina and with pleasant outdoor seating area, this casual cafe is a popular place for afternoon tea or lighter bites and drinks. Hamburgers and pizzas cater to a tourist crowd.
This small place is decked out in black, red and yellow, and there’s a simple, airy courtyard. Serves decent sushi, sashimi and noodle dishes. A platter for two costs €42.
Candlelit at night, with a marina setting, big open windows and a plant-filled terrace, this is a slightly upmarket, romantic seafood choice.
On a narrow pedestrian lane near the bars (follow your nose), this small pizzeria whips up delicious tasty thin-crust pizzas plus other dishes.
This cosy, busy trattoria-style restaurant serves delicious regional food such as xarém (corn meal), and has daily specials on a blackboard.
The place to head for your patisserie fix and the place to be seen. Has a wide variety of homemade specialities.
