I had the Seabass - it was the whole fish - so with bones but the best tasting Seabass I have ever eaten. My husband had monkfish which was also good. The veg are a bit underwhelming but the meal was very good value with very pleasant staff and the Cataplanas smelt and looked wonderful but are for 2 people so you need to agree to share. Be sure to ask for the non smoking room. Here is also open Sunday nights which is not so common in Faro.

My only regret about this restaurant is that we only found it a couple of days before we were due to the UK. The food was amazing, especially the 'shrimp' kebabs. To me, a rimp is 5mm long and gets potted in Morecambe. These shrimps were about 8 cm long and mixed on the skewers with either similarly sized octopus tentacles or huge chunks of perfectly prepared monkfish (other options are available). Delicious!!!

Should we return to Faro next year (quite possible) this will be the venue for our first night meal. In spite of the food quality, prices were reasonable (40-50 Euros for 2 including wine).

Make sure you choose the non smoking room of this restaurant. Meals were basic but OK, staff very friendly, not too expensive

I went there on a Friday evening, late October, to have dinner. The service was very good and the food tasty and fresh. The dessert (tarte de amendoas) could have had a bit more flavor, but it was delicious anyway.

Visited Chef Branco whilst on holiday in Faro. The place itself and staff very friendly and kind enough to spot that a fly flew into our wine and changed it without us even asking. Unfortunately both fish dishes we ordered were over cooked and over salted. We had the shrimp & octopus and the shrimp & squid which came out on tall hanging skewers. The shrimp you could get away with and still eat, but the others were totally over cooked and very chewy. Perhaps we ordered the wrong things.. I would consider returning to give it another try but we were disappointed in what we had on the night.
