    We had a nice evening in a good atmosphare with a professional service. The food was good, the wine as well. We can recommend the restaurant to other guests.

    Absolutely amazing. Small restaurant, so make reservations. Service was 10/10, and the food was exquisite. My partner had the beef and I had the lamb. Both delicious and perfectly prepared. This is a very special place.

    We had 2 appetizers that were good, and 2 main courses that overcooked (especially the baby lamb shoulder was burnt which could have been both tender and flavorful, but was so dry it was hard to eat).

    Terrific restaurant with great food and great service. This restaurant will not disappoint. Highly recommend this restaurant but you must make a reservation. Definitely the place to eat while you are visiting Lisbon.

    Good food but setting could be better. The dishes were very tasty but little room for romantic conversations. Would go back again though. Regards

    What a great find! The food here is incredible and the price to quality ratio is fantastic. Nice corner restaurant with limited outdoor seating. Definitely recommend the octopus and shrimp.

    Small restaurant that was difficult for Uber driver to reach. Delicious meal with large portions. Waiter was on top of everything.

    Only criticism is that we found the Main course portions really rather large and struggled to finish them because we’d had starters.

    EXCELLENT. Best meal i had in Portugal. Great prices, excellent food, lovely wine. Ambiance was perfect to celebrate birthday. Went as a group of 8, definitely make a reservation for a large group! They were able to fit us in and we couldn't have been more pleased!

    Wonderfully elegant atmosphere (we dined inside), incredibly friendly service from the 2 male waiters we saw, food just as great. We really stuffed ourselves getting the octopus, lamb, seabass and 2 desserts (banana and panna cotta dishes), rolled out of there a happy couple!

    Great food and service! The waiter was delightful. We sat outside, but the inside looked very charming too. We had sea bass, steak and vegetables. All of it was great!

    The food from this small restaurant is amazing. I had the seabass stew which was delicious and my husband had the octopus which came whole on a bed of wilted spinach which was the best thing he’d eaten in a long time. We would highly recommend.

    Very small restaurant with indoor and limited outdoor seating. We shared a shrimp salad, which was very tasty and quite large. I had the octopus, it was delicious and the biggest portion I’ve ever had- an entire octopus. It was tender d tasty. My husband had the cod and it was excellent as well, loved his mashed potatoes. Would highly recommend

    The meals served at Faia were outstanding. Our party had the steak and the octopus. It was perfectly cooked and delicious. We will definitely return to Faia again.

    Excellent food and service. I loved the owner chose a wine he loved, but when we didn't love it, he simply allowed us to get another wine! That was so sweet of him.
