Restaurants in Faro

Restaurants in Faro

Take a look at my separate posts for my fantastic visit to Ria Formosa rooftop restaurant in Faro and Aperitivo. Some of the other restaurants in Faro I visited are here:

O Castelo

Based in the old town of Faro is the beautiful O Castelo, meaning the castle, with fantastic views of the sea.

The outdoor terrace is spacious and we managed to nab a table right by the edge. Slightly more upmarket than some of the other places in the old town (apart from Faz Gostos) it was a little pricier but very much worth it. There are a large selection of cocktails on offer so we opted for an Aperol spritz.

O Castelo offers large plates and small tapas dishes. We opted for the hamburger with cheese and ham and fries and a ham and cheese toastie which was way better than I thought (and huge!) As we were pretty hungry we also tried the chorizo. It is cooked in front of you over a BBQ grill which was so flavoursome.

We had such a good view that we had to stay for another drink – a lovely glass of rose!! All of that came to just over 35 euros but is definitely worth it.

Pasterlia Chelsea

We were on a hunt for pastel de nata in Faro and had heard that Pasterilia Chelsea’s were fantastic so decided to give it a go.

Spacious cafe with seating inside and outside and absolutely scrumptious cakes and pastries on display. The pastel de nata’s (Portugeuse custard tart) lived up to my expectations – so much so that I ordered another two to take away. The staff were friendly and joking with us about the football on TV.

4 pastel de natas and 2 cokes only came to a reasonable 11 euros – a must visit for pastel de nata!


Eme is based right by the Marina with a terrace area for drinks and dining. Whilst the service wasn’t particularly attentive, for sandwiches or salads at lunchtime, it is reasonably priced, plus the view is pretty wicked!

We had a steak sandwich and pork panini with chips (served with delicious garlic butter) two glasses of rose and 2 waters for just over 20 euros – not bad at all considering the location.
