By far the best food, wine and service in Albufeira. Outstanding athmosphere and the hosts are very friendly and welcoming. The owners are dedicated and pasionate about the food and wine. Priceworthy and lovely gourmet meal. We will definately come back here next time we are in Albufeira. Best Regards, four most satisfied norwegians.

Choose wisely a large carte, book early, friendly family atmosphere, you get what you pay for. In the old town of albafeira there are many eateries to choose from a quaint browse around out of 10 ( 6) a bit pricey for senior citizens.thank you.

If I was to review this restaurant comparing to other restaurants in Albufeira this is clearly a 5. However, Dom Carlos deserves to be compared to restaurants in a different league where we compare to those with or striving for stars. Peter and his wife runs a very nice, personal and informal restaurant with 5-course set-menue, but still with opportunities... More

After reading the fabulous reviews on here decided to see what all the fuss was about ! Everything I had read about was true - the hosts were delightful and attentive and the food delicious! An extremely special last night in Portugal . The turbot fish course was heavenly . Will definitely visit again if in the vicinity .
