This is a great choice in the old town, beautiful and interesting interior plus the obligatory outside seating in the square. Good was excellent, Salmon especially good. Service on our second visit was a little slow, but nothing disastrous.

Visited on a trip to Faro, in fact we liked it so much we went in for coffee twice in a morning. The cake selection is lovely. The staff are very friendly. Well worth a visit. Beautiful location, very historic building.
