Nestled discreetly in a charming alleyway of Faro, the unassuming facade of Pigs and Cows belies the gastronomic treasure that awaits within.

Stepping through its doors, you're transported into a realm where culinary artistry flourishes, and the marriage of Portuguese and French flavors dance harmoniously on your palate.

The interior is a testament to meticulous renovation and design, with only six tables gracing the space alongside a melodious piano. A quaint courtyard at the rear extends an invitation for al fresco dining, adding a touch of enchantment to the ambiance.

Lilia and Didier, the delightful French couple behind this culinary haven, have curated an exceptional dining experience over the past five years. Lilia, the mastermind behind the delectable creations, emerges from the kitchen to personally engage with diners, discussing the menu with a genuine passion that's contagious.

The prix fixe menu (49,50), a three-course symphony of flavors, beckons with diverse selections including meat, fish, and vegetarian options.

A highlight among highlights is the unnamed masterpiece—a dish conceived by Lilly herself. A mesmerizing blend of rice, spinach sauce, and chickpeas, this signature creation exemplifies the fusion that defines Pigs and Cows.

The staff, a cohort of angels in human form, orchestrate the evening flawlessly. Amidst the elegant atmosphere, you'll find no airs of pretentiousness; this is fine dining with heart and soul. The wine pairing is a stroke of brilliance, enhancing each dish and elevating the experience.

Booking ahead is essential, given the restaurant's intimate size, and the warm communication only adds to the anticipation. From the moment you step in, you're enveloped in a cocoon of care, with Lilia personally elucidating each dish, leaving you with a tantalizing conundrum of choices.

Pigs and Cows is more than a restaurant; it's a sanctuary for indulgence, a temple of flavors, and an ode to the art of savoring life's moments. If you seek a dining escapade that transcends the ordinary, venture into this haven where Portuguese and French cuisines unite in perfect harmony. Your taste buds, and your soul, will thank you.
