We stayed in the Hotel Faro for a long weekend with the intention of eating out in different places but the food here was so good we didn't really need to leave the hotel. Highly recommend the tasting menu and the Sunday Brunch.

We were very disappointed in the service. It made our experience unpleasant. First time in Faro that we didn't enjoy our visit. Food is good but pricey. Would not go back.
