We went hear for lunch on the last day of our trip. Wish we had found it sooner, as the food was really tasty and the staff very welcoming. We had the seafood cataplana and as well as being the tastiest i have ever eaten it was also the cheapest for the area, so a win win situation. Would definitely... More

We had an evening meal at Tasca do Ricky. The food seemed rather simplistic but was tasty, although some things where overwhelmed by the excessive use of garlic. Prices reasonable given the quality. Friendly service. A cod fish croquette was provided as an amuse bouche which was very tasty, although slightly cold. We were also provided a complimentary Portuguese almond... More

We went here for dinner on recommendations from a friend and read here. We were not disappointed, the service was excellent, Ricky and Tiago were really friendly and good fun and we were served several extras on the house which was a lovely touch. We both had a great meal, main course and dessert both excellent and then a liqueur... More

During our 3 nights stay in Faro it was the most outstanding place :) food, service everything was brilliant. I loved the seafood rice! Probably will come back one day to Faro to this restaurant just to try this dish again:)

Me and my fiancé went there because of the reviews on tripadvisor. We had actually never done that before. Took us a while to find the restaurant and when we got there it was already 8 o'clock and it was a Saturday so of course they had no table for us. Completely our own fault not thinking this through haha.... More

We had a good time there and very good fresh seafood. The service was so hostitable and friendly that we came back the next day. You better reserve a table on weekends or in holiday season. Try the "cataplana" if you love seafood

Food was amazing, such a good host who was more than happy to talk you through how to make the dishes at home. A bit hidden, but well worth looking for.

First of all - Thank you very much to Ricky who made us feel at home from the start. After reading some other reviews I can see that other diners had slightly different experience because they ordered from the menu. Yet, me and my boyfriend discovered this totally by accident while hunting for a place for lunch. The deal on... More

We wanted to experience the local cuisine and discovered this little gem. It was a bit tricky to find as the streets in Faro are not geometric and it's easy to get lost. Our waiter Diago spoke excellent English and explained the local specialties. We ordered the Cataplana for one and Baby Squids. Two complimentary appetisers were offered: a plate... More
