Best family-friendly restaurants in Faro

Since you decided to explore Faro with your young ones, it is time to see where you will be able to enjoy your meal. Although Faro is a very child-friendly town, traveling with your child can be highly exhausting. When it is time to eat, children tend to become very cranky and so do adults:). So, it is essential to find the right place to enjoy your lunch.

Most of the parents are very well aware of the dangers of dining with toddlers. They know, they will need a quick and sympathetic service and a simple, yet familiar food. It is also important to know the facilities of the restaurant; steps, high chairs, small tables are all the things you do not want to see when preparing your family for reasonably quiet lunchtime. Whatever that is. :) Just for all of you exhausted parents, we made a list of child-proof restaurants in Faro.

Top 5 family-friendly restaurants in Faro:

We recommend that you hire a car at the Faro Airport and discover the old town of Faro. After all of the sightseeing, you and your family can have a nice and a reasonably peaceful meal anywhere in the next five places.

  • Alef Burger Bar. You’re on vacation, relax and forget about healthy food for a while. Enjoy your burger and order a big french fries for your child.
  • Wax Restobar. While your youngsters are playing at the beach, you will be able to enjoy your lunch peacefully. Octopus and fish are something we most definitely recommend.
  • 31 Bistro Vinho & Comp. This friendly family restaurant in the heart of Faro will coddle you with traditional Portuguese cuisine and vino.
  • La Forchetta. Pizza and spaghetti is something Italians made for all the picky children of the world. Prices here are reasonable and if you also are a fan of Italian food, this is a place to be.
  • Xic restaurante (tapas&petiscos). Very patient and friendly staff of this place will show your family what traditional Faro food tastes like. Petiscos are just made for your choosy toddler.

Faro cuisine

Portuguese cuisine is all about seafood and fish. Lots of fish. “Bacalhau” - that is basically dried and salted cod and “sardinhas assadas” or grilled sardines are Portuguese specialties. Faro cuisine is also well under the Mediterranean influence. So, on most of the menus, you will find some sort of seafood. Faro added clams in all forms and tapas aka. “petiscos” to their culinary delights. Otherwise, it is basically the same as other parts of Portugal.



So, if you are staying in Faro and your children aren’t fans of seafood, “petiscos” are a great alternative here. Other traditional dishes that are common here are pork and beef. Favored vegetables here are tomatoes, cabbage, and onions and are mainly included in their casseroles. For gastronomic lovers, Faro is a place to be. Children may have other preferences, so it could be a wise idea to reconsider Portugal cuisine and just go back to spaghetti and french fries.
