We had take away twice from Case Joao during our week stay in Carvoeiro. Really tasty pizzas and pastas. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Great value!

BEAUTIFUL RESTAURANT! 5* FOOD & SERVICE! We are local to Restaurante & Pizzaria Casa João and went for a lovely family dinner last night! The customer service is 5*, we were greeted with a smile, and seated quickly with a wide variety menu for all!...The starters were truly delicious, the best Calamari in the Algarve, followed by a delicious main of the Portugesa Pizza. The pizzas cannot be missed, they are cooked to a tasty and crisy texture that is soooo yummy! We cannot wait to go back for a lovely family again, we have recommended it to lots of friends and visitors in the area. We will also be getting take out pizzas from here now in the future! Already looking forward to our next visit, cannot wait!More

We have eaten in many times and today enjoyed their lunch special. The fish and chips were tasty and accompanied by a lovely salad. Good food at good value. João is a very friendly and accommodating host.

Dropped in for a late dinner in this restaurant just outside Carvoeira, after a long day walking in the area of Burgau. Typical offering of pizza, pasta etc. Our pizza, and shrimp spaghetti, were both ok but nothing special. House wine was pretty tasteless, but...at €5 for 0.5L that was to be expected. Won’t rush backMore

Friendly out of the way Portuguese pizza house which also serves a decent mix of other foods. I enjoyed the excellent salmon (two pieces) and my wife enjoyed a very local speciality Portuguese steak. Very fairly priced, good wine. Recommended.

We visited a few nights back. All ordered pizzas which were good. Liked how you can go to the small bar area after you finish your meal if you wish. Just one thing - please stop putting plastic straws and other fancy junk in your...drinks. So wasteful. ( small issue but conscious of the huge amount of waste it must create for just a few seconds before people remove it all to drink it ) We would return.More
