One of my favourite restaurants in Sagres and a must on the list of where to go! The fish is amazing, I had snapper and it was beautiful. Not a bad price either considering how great the food is

Wonderful food, nice wine list, good service, pleasant surroundings and very popular. Our dinner began with the couvert, a plate of breads and cheeses, and included Algarve Cataolana (Cataplane Ameijoas) as its main course. Cataplana is a fantastic kind of stew prepared with Portugal famous pork and including various seafoods. If you eat nothing else in Portugal, you must try... More

We waited ages for the waiter to take out order. After asking 5 times he finally came after 25min to take the order. The fish was mediocre, dry with lots of fish bones. Not a complete disaster but clearly no recommendation!

My husband and I came to Restaurante Carlos for dinner on Easter Sunday. We didn't have reservations and it was around 8pm but we were welcomed in and only had to wait a few minutes at the bar before a table was prepared. The place was lively, and it seemed to be filled with lots of locals, or at least... More

We shared a mixed fish platter which was baked in oil in the oven. The fish included sea bass, grouper and monkfish, served with vegetables. We drank a bottle of Algarve White on the recommendation of the waiter, which was also good.

Great restaurant with outstanding local food. The staff, the owner and the owner's son were so friendly that we returned five nights out of our six days in Sagres. The only night that we did not eat there was the night that the restaurant was closed.

Had an OK meal here. The seabass was very nice but came with some overcooked green beans. Absolutely fine but for a mid-range meal but the A Tasca is a better bet.

After walking part of the Via Algarviana, we didn't want to walk far from our hotel, and Carlos was nearly next door. It was welcoming and friendly. We had the usual bread and olives, then one rice and octopus dish and one cuttlefish with beans and rice on the side. And a salad. Both were fine, and the dessert was... More
