Great neighborhood restaurant in Faro. Inexpensive, not touristy, small, family run. Had a great lunch... For the squeamish, they serve fish with heads on and bones. For the adventurous, bon appetit.

Truly enjoyed the service and food, as well as the complimentary dishes. Went twice so far and will definitely be back. The waiter was helpful, attentive and very friendly. Do not forget the house desert, it is one of the best I have ever had.
