For mixing with mastery the best Algarve food has to offer with flavours from distant shores like India, O Costa restaurant had to be part of this list. I love to start with the Razor-Clam Samoussa and then head to the grilled squid with “Migas”, but no matter your choice, your dish is always going to be delicious. This is one of the two restaurants in Faro suggestions existing on the small islands of Faro.

Every time I go to this restaurant I become so overwhelmed by the natural beauty that surrounds me as well as by the peace and tranquility that reigns here, that I almost forget to order my meal. Luckly there is always a nice waiter to wake me up from my daydream so I have the chance to enjoy the magnificent food served at Estaminé, one of the best restaurants in Faro.

I love the traditional ambience of Adega Nova, one of my favourite restaurants in Faro, and the tasty homemade food served here. The anglerfish with shrimps or the shrimps and bean stew are some of the best choices on the menu. But don’t forget to leave some space for the delicious desserts presented!

Belle Époque – Caffé & Steak House
If you want to travel in time to the last years of the 19th century go to the Belle Époque – Caffé & Steak House, one of the most unique restaurants in Faro. The sophisticated and elegant ambience makes this restaurant the perfect place for a romantic dinner. Besides, the scenery is enhanced by the magnificent steaks served. I particularly enjoy the Beef and Reef option that combines an Argentine steak with shrimps, accompanied by vegetables and sauté potatoes.

Restaurante Ria Formosa
Situated on the roof top of Hotel Faro, this restaurant conquers us first by the wonderful view over the Ria Formosa and the Old Town of Faro and then by the contemporary gastronomy offered that combines the best products from the Algarve, either from the sea or from the countryside.
