Cocktail and Dinner

We have a little time before dinner so we stopped by O'Corelo a restaurant/Bar next to the Marina.

We like this place so we came back again for a drink.


O'Corelo a restaurant/Bar has nice view of the Marina and there is also live music so it is a really relaxing place.


After our drinks we walked around looking for a restaurant and we saw Restaurante Cidade Velha in the old town.


Customers can sit inside or on the Patio. 


This is the patio.


We got a table on the patio.


View of the patio and the restaurant from our table.


This is a really day to sit outside.



The menu


We ordered a bottle of white wine.


I ordered the grilled octopus Lagareido style with sweet and regular potatoes - 17.50 euros


I love octopus so I try to order Octopus at least once a day while in Portugal.


Chicken Piri Piri, a typical Portuguese dish which we had never tried before -12.50 euros


Both of us really like this dish!  The chicken was moist, the skin was crispy, and the sauce is spicy.  What a lovely dish.


Both dishes were excellent!


Cheese platter.


Assorted cheese selection with raspberry sauce.


In was getting dark by the time we finished our meal.


Faro at night

Building in front of the restaurant.


Arch way on Rua do Repouso.



Streets in the Old town.


We are now at the main plaza.


Columbus bar is a very popular place for drinks.


Inside the Columbus bar.  People are sitting outside and it is empty inside.


We were too full for a drink but it is a really nice place.


Shopping center on the left and Arco da Villa on the right.


Main Plaza looking towards the Marina.


The building on the left is O'corello restaurant and Bar. It is the one we stopped by for a drink early on.


We are now really close to our apartment.  Coffee shop on Jardim de Ferreira de Almeida plaza,
