We visited for dinner and the place was full, but we only had to wait a few minutes for a table. They certainly pack the tables in tight, so you can hear other couples' conversations. No matter though, the place is nice because the staff make you feel very welcome and they are very jovial. We ordered the grilled piri... More

Tried to get in a few nights ago but they were full but the kind lady said to try on Monday. We rang and booked! Lovely food, super service, great with the kids, nothing was any bother and the vegetables were lovely change. We had sea bream, swordfish, halibut and spaghetti bol. All were beautiful. Can't recommend this restaurant enough!... More

They are always generous to offer more if you like also. Nice deserts and great little free shots at the end of the meal. The people there are really helpful and... More

Portuguese style steak - beautiful meat and flavour. Complimentary drinks at the end of your meal at certain times - lovely finishing touch... We go there time... More

The red snapper was shared by 2 of us and they said it was excellent. I had Portuguese steak which had a lovely sauce but a bizarre slice of cooked ham on the top. The other 3 had different meals but all three thought they were also very good. The staff were all excellent. The port and strawberry liqueur were... More

I think this is one of the few authentic Portugeuse restaurants I found in Carvoeiro. I had fish on my 3 visits, all very nice. Very good friendly service washed down with a glass of port.

Nearly missed a treat as this restaurant was full but fortunately seen by the staff who advised we have a quick drink outside as a couple of tables were soon to be free. 5 minutes later we were perusing a great menu with plenty of choice in a friendly atmosphere with attentive staff. I can recommend the grilled seabass and... More
