Address: Largo da Sé

Dois Irmãos

Beautiful surroundings and with a long history, one of the best and most popular fish restaurants in Faro. As is always the case, there are also a number of other dishes on the menu.
Address: Praça Ferreira de Almeida 13-14


A simple and attractive café that is so successful that the sawdust has been swept up from the floor and the soot has been washed from the walls. This is actually a shame, but in a small courtyard, where the barbecues smoke, the old atmosphere can still be felt. You will have the opportunity to choose products such as fish from the raw produce on display.
Address: Rua Infante Dom Henrique 120
