My wife and I have eaten here twice and really like it. Food is excellent as stated in most of the reviews. Peter and Anna are brilliant hosts and customer service is excellent. Peter explains all the courses and will gladly offer some items not on the menu if available. Take his advice and arrive hungry! On our second visit... More

Just had to try this restaurant after reading the reviews. So glad we did! The prawn starter was just amazing as was the calamari. The fish cataplana we shared as a main course was excellent and a very generous portion. The husband at front of house was so helpful in explaining the dishes and his wife's cooking so simply magnificent!... More

We visit Albufeira at least twice a year but have never until this time visited Dom Carlos. This is by far the best restaurant in Old Albufeira. The hosts are welcoming, attentive and graceful. The food served is astounding with a superb selection of wines. We arrived at 7pm, ate a truly wonderful five course meal served with amazing homemade... More

I am not going to waste my time telling you how good this place is. Just go and see for yourself. Every thing we ate and drank was nothing short of superb and the service and bonhomie was even better. If you go to Alubufeira and don't eat here you have wasted your plane ticket.

I've eaten in top restaurants around the world, and the food in this place is as good as any I have ever had. But then when you add on the charm of the restaurant, the chef personally greeting you and explaining the menu prior to the meal, the extremely friendly service and the passion for food that comes across so...

It was a pleasure to dine in such a fabulous intimate restaurant. The dining experience which Peter and Ana expertly deliver, with a personal touch is exemplary. We feel extra privileged to be the last guests of the season. It re-opens in February 2015, make sure you book, it's well worth it!!!

The most unexpected thing about this restaurant is the fact that the chef comes out to personally describe the menus to you. apparently the dishes changes everyday depending on ingredients availability in the local market. that on its own tells you how much the chef puts into his cooking. they were 5 courses dinner. myself and my gf loves food...

We stayed in Albufeira for a week and ate out each evening. There are many restaurants of the type where you point at the picture, have a meal presented to you 5 minutes later, then as you leave hand over your 5 euros. There are a few restaurants of a good quality which serve local dishes such as cataplana and... More
