A Foodie’s Guide to Faro Restaurants

Portugal, Faro Guide (B): A Foodie’s Guide to Faro Restaurants

Portugal is one of those countries I’m steadily falling in love with. I’d not been at all until I was 33 (the same age I also experienced my first waterpark – go figure) but I’ve been three times since. On that first, waterpark-fuelled holiday, I drove around the Algarve, eating along the way. Then a year or two later, I ate my way through Lisbon and Sintra.

I’d highly recommend staying a day or two in Faro before heading off to the Algarve’s stunning coastline and rural orange groves. And for when you do, I bring you my Foodie Guide to Faro Restaurants.
