Booked here after finding it whilst wandering round Faro Old Town, and reading reviews on TropAdvisor. We weren’t disappointed! Waiters were friendly, helpful and made us feel welcome. The food was very good - decent size portions but not too much, well cooked and we weren’t rushed. We all had fish dishes which were very tasty, and then ice cream - delicious! -for dessert. Would recommend.

We have visited Faz Gustos on a number of occasions and although the service etc were good we felt that since the enlarging of the restaurant it has lost some of its charm.

We have been to Faz Gostos several times and have always enjoyed our visits.
The food is excellent, the decor is delightful and the staff are charming. On this visit my wife had prawn fricassee and I had the monkfish rice with prawns and clams. We both agreed that both dishes were superb. A trip to Faro is not complete without a trip to Faz Gostos.

The food was good but the experience was disappointing due to the service. We had multiple waiters and waitresses and felt like we were left waiting for long periods of time.

The food was delicious, the mood was good, but the service was slow. The staff was friendly but we were not tended to during lengthy parts of our dinner, which caused the total meal to be more than 2 hours for two people who weren’t trying to linger.

Really good service. A slight lack of salt and pepper at the main courses for my taste which could have been added individually of course.

Had high expectations on Faz Gostos. The restaurant had a trendy interior and was located in a beautiful spot. However our experience was nothing as we expected. The waiter seemed annoyed and stressed even though the restaurant was not nearly full. Our starters came before our drinks, which they had forgotten about. When we were given our drinks it was the wrong order. The waiter apologized and everything was fine. The starters, the goat cheese, was good but the chef had forgotten the walnuts on one of the plates. Both our main dishes, the prawn risotto and the linguini, was very blend and boring. Extremely overpriced. Maybe we just had bad luck and came at the wrong time, but I doubt that we will come back.

The dishes should be remove quicker, specialy the dishes of the bread before the starters. The toredo should be medium, but it was well done. The rest was very ok and the stuff was very friendly.

Overall we were not too happy with the food or service. Waiters did t seem to care. Food was lacking in flavour. My wife had a mushroom risotto and had to ask for both salt and pepper. I ordered prawns in mango sauce. Prawns were dry,, I’m guessing frozen not fresh, We did however enjoy a starter of goat cheese with honey with a very nice bottle of wine..

We sat outside and perhaps a mistake with the noisy planes but we choose the seats

This used to be one of our favourite restaurants but of late the food has been average at best and some dishes poor. Bring back the old Faz Gostos which we loved.
