Pooped in for a couple of drinks in the bar. Beers nice and cold. Food tasty and the peri peri sauce was delicious. Pub a bit small and really smokey.

My husbands Chicken was fantastic. Milkshakes good too. My Spanish prawns were very salty unfortunately. It did feel like we were in Portugal so a nice experience.

We have not been to Caravela for quite some time so I suggested the venue for my married daughter's birthday celebration. We were a group of 13 people and were very well received and had tables set up a little away from the busy area. Service in general was good but both my wife and myself were dissappointed in our...

Caravela has got defrosting down to a fine art. My lamb shank was warm all the way through and nicely watery. To accompany this meal I had warm garden salad on the same plate as my steak. The hot plate wilted the lettuce beautifuly so that the water from the defrosted shank was able to coat it evenly. Service was... More

Whenever I'm stating in Brits, am trying to be there as it is located in the same area with the hotel. Very nice atmosphere, seafood and wines. Of course the meat is also good. Very friendly and professional staff at the restaurant is also one of the best things.

We last visited here years ago as we were charged for the doggie bag container. The food is pricey as is and we are not willing to be ripped off.

My wife and I arrived expecting hearty pub food. Instead, the bread for the table came cold and the waitress was less than helpful. The cocktails, however were good. My wife's chicken was tough and dry (flattened spring chicken) and my chicken was bland and overpowered by feta (chicken Rockefeller). When I cut into my chicken, white liquid filled my... More

Ended up at Caravel's on a Sunday afternoon after a grueling cycle race, hungry as wolves. Excellent service, wonderful menu with really a wide variety of Portuguese cuisine. Relatively limited wine list. Can go back there.
