Faz Gostos is located in a small square in the old town. It offers both indoor and outdoor seating. The menu has lovely mix of Portuguese dishes, dishes are very tasty and the wine list diverse. We had a lovely evening here.

If you go to Faro be sure to visit this hidden gem. The food is excellent and the service impeccable. I'm not going to say anymore in case it becomes too popular and I cant get a table.
