Delicious food, great view and good service despite being a tourist spot!

The food was wonderful! We walked the cliffs of Benagil and were ready to eat. Not many choices of restaurants with a view so we took a chance on Casa Lamy. Our family had the seafood cataplana for two, a steak with chips and the piri piri chicken. All were very, very good and served hot and... read more

Emerging from a fairly strenuous cliff walk it was great to find this restaurant. At first sight little more than a beach bar it is in fact a cosy and inexpensive restaurant with an extensive menu at very reasonable prices. Prawns were highly commended for size and flavour.

Good but not quite special enough for 4 stars. Our accommodation had made the booking and we were given the best table. Just 2 other tables were occupied during our visit. The garlic prawns and fresh fish were delicious (definitely 4 stars) served with basic boiled pots and lettuce and toms - simple but delicious. Desserts and coffees however took... More

We visited in Sept 2015, the view is superb down onto the beach so the position is excellent but a we were greeted by a very unfriendly waitress so to say we were 'greeted' as it were is an over statement so instead of staying and having a slap up lunch and spending good money we choose to have some...

Casa Lamy is a family-owned and operated restaurant located on a ridge overlooking Benagil Beach. There is both an indoor and outdoor seating area. The cuisine here is made up of uncomplicated, honest, and well-executed Algarve classics...fresh grilled dorade (bream) and sea bass, delicious garlic prawns and razor clams, local wines, and almond-/orange-based desserts. We came here the first time... More

We dined here twice in one week, both for evening meals. Once outside and once inside as the air was a little cool. Crevettes in garlic oil for starters, not quite the same style as we have in previous years but still vey good. Fresh Sea Bass and Bream with potatoes and salad. Good bottle of local white wine.

Casa lamy has great views and delicious fresh seafood. I had the grilled sardines, never ate such pure delicious cooked dish before. My husband had the razor clams and they were very good too. Friendly staff.

With a great view, OK a little Ferness would'nt go a miss, but best clams ever, and chips made with REAL potatoes , (not crunchy like the artificial chips almost served everywhere). Prices are average for position of bar. We have been here on many of our visits to the Algarve

The food was so bad, I had the cod with a garlic sauce, but arrived with a sprinkling of chopped garlic, there was no sauce the fillet of fish had so many bones in it, and it was so dry. I could not eat it, really disgusting, even the chips were horrible, in fact on returning home my husband got... More

We visited twice on this visit to carvoeiro and loved it both times. It's in benegil so not sure why it's under lagoa. The homemade cheese and the garlic prawns to start were fantastic. For mains the fish is great and the chicken piri piri perhaps could be a little spicier. Lamy is reasonably priced and the views excellent. You... More
