Excellent restaurant for lunch or dinner al fresco. Friendly staff. Not expensive at all, considering the very good food. White port sangria is a must try.

My friend and I are here on our last night in Faro and were very impressed with how tasty our food was! I had the lamb and she had the salmon. It was very delicious and a perfect end to our holiday! Would definitely recommend!
