Lunch on Ilha Faro (Faro Island)

Ahead of us is Farol Island and our tour guide will drop us off here so we can have lunch and then tour the island afterwards.

Ilha do Farol is a small community on a barrier island on the edge of the Ria Formosa.


Docking pier.



That's our tour boat with our tour guide in the center.


There are only a few restaurant in town so we are just following the sign.


This is one of the largest restaurant on the Island.


As we turned around we saw Robin Wright, the actress and asked her if we could take a picture with her and gladly accepted.


Robin is really down to earth and very friendly.  We were the only one that know who she was and I am sure she was grateful for that.

After taking a picture with her, we make sure not to sit too close to her and her daughter to give her privacy.


We had a table outside.  Hoa is in the center of the picture.


Here you can see Robin and her daughter on the left.  Hoa is on the far right.


Lunch time.


Beautiful view from the restaurant.


I ordered razor clams.


They were delicious, sweet, and tasty.



Hoa ordered a plate of Mixed grill meat.


Generous portion.  Everything was delicious.




Dessert and coffee and we are now ready to walk around the island.
