Tasso do Ricky offers a true Portuguese experience. Food is fresh and authentic. I always ask for the lunch special without asking what it is. I've never been disappointed! You will have to seek out this restaurant as it is not on a main drag but it is worth it. Enter Rua do Forno on Google maps and let it... More

We all had the feeling they (staff) were pulling off a big show about how they great they are and how wonderful their food is, but at the end the food is not that special... I would recommend a bit more modesty, since they are overdoing it with 'selling' their restaurant.

Our waiter was friendly and explained the dishes to us. We ordered two starters, two mains and a bottle of wine €40. The starters weren't the best but the mains were a great size and the salmon was cooked perfectly! Absolutely delicious! The restaurant was very quiet - we were the only customers in there expect for who I presumed... More

We chose Tasca do Ricky for our first lunch in Faro and what a great choice it was. We had the set lunch menu which consisted of bread and olives, 3 courses of delicious home-cooked food, a glass of wine and coffee. What a bargain at 10 Euros! The welcome was warm and the attention we received friendly, helpful and... More

Food here is great! I had the Arroz con Mariscos and it was so delicious it trumped all of the food I had in Spain during my vacation. Also for 15 euros you get an entire pot of it I thought it was the XL portion! The waitresses were friendly and funny. She scoped the food from the pot onto... More

It appears we saved the best meal for the last night of our trip. We've had great food on this weekend away but Tasca do Ricky takes top spot. Tucked away just off the main road we were greeted warmly and offered help on the menu. We opted for seafood rice and quite simply loved it. The option for 2... More

A small, friendly restaurant with a wide range of great food... we tried 5 dishes and they brought us tasters of a couple more. The owner and all staff were helpful and friendly, and the food outstanding... only wish we were there longer so we could go back and try more things...

The tourist office recommended this restaurant to us. The staff was really really nice and the menu was full of traditional Portuguese dishes (even Francesinha which is typical of the north of Portugal) with reasonable prices. You absolutely have to try their Sangria !

So, I have to say that it was not our first choice, as it was further from our hotel, but we ended up in this restaurant and we loved it! The owner and waiting staff are all lovely people that took excellent care of us all evening. The food was delicious and their advice regarding wine was perfect! No regret,... More
