The quality of the food is good, but the guests should be aware that it is a "petiscos / tapas" place, not a "normal" restaurant. This means that each dish is small and you are supposed to order more than one and also separately order side dishes. Nevertheless the overall price is reasonable ... although not the best option in... More

We had dinner in this place that I found on the internet. Though I am from Chaves, I had never been there before. I used to go to other places but that day (Monday) they were closed so I had to find another place to take my Greek friends out for Portuguese food, and I am glad I did. I... More

During our holidays, we stopped at Adega Faustino for dinner. Having been there many years before on our honeymoon, we had very good memories from eating there, and wanted to share this with our two children. It did not disappoint. We ordered a selection of appetizers to eat, and everything was really, really good. To top it off, the prices... More

Adega do Faustino is a must visit for anyone going to Chaves. The room is unique as an old wine cellar was converted into a "petiscos" (portuguese tapas) style restaurant. They kept the old room style intact with a beautifully engineered roof support, five 3000 liter vats and the original cobbled floor. On some of the tables you sit on... More

My wife and I ordered a tuna steak and lamb chops respectively. My meat was ok but the portion not large. The small tuna portion was inedibly salty so we politely asked to change it for more chops. The waiter became sarcastic and made pointed comments about salt when we asked for a second salad (again, because of small portions).... More

We enjoyed this place so much, we ate there twice. Offering traditional foods at reasonable prices (cheap by UK standards), we felt able to experiment with a variety of dishes. It was the only restaurant we saw practically full (in late July) - customers were nearly all Portuguese - a mix of tourists and locals - but we were made... More

Good honest cooking, great wines and very reasonable cost. We got there early and were the only ones in the restaurant for about an hour, thereafter it seemed to fill up with largely locals.
