The restaurant is situated within the rocks and close to the sea. It in short is an beautifull location for a sunset diner. Get there early though, as it gets very busy from 8pm and on. The food is good, especially the fish of the...More

There are not many locations better than this place in the whole of the Algarve. Sadly that gives them a guaranteed raft of people wanting to eat there. Food was average and expensive. Wine expensive but good. Service poor bordering on totally uninterested.

Loved this bar set amongst the rugged shoreline/cliffs. Access is difficult as it has a lot of steps down to it but worth it. There is some indoor seating but on a windy day (which we had) you need to be prepared to brave it...More

Definitely worth visiting la boneca just next to the restaurant. Food is somewhat over priced and waiters a little condescending we felt. There is much better value and equally good food elsewhere. Wouldn’t recommend

As others have commented, the setting here is pretty perfect - down a coastal road to a comparatively small number of tables laid out between the cliffs with some views out to sea. And our experience as a group of friends was that that was...More

I wouldn’t think so, I would think cava more like considering the style of dining , more like a high end cafe. You’re paying for the view, however I’m sure they must be on Twitter or Instagram , try looking on social media... More

Carvoeiro beach is the nearest beach from the Boneca Bar/Restaurant. It’s an easy 15 minute walk down along the Boardwalk to the Church and then down the steep road to the beach.
