No.1 you have to try it, wish I hadn't of bothered, a complete and utter rip off, 5€ for a bottle of water I was expecting Ronnie Briggs to come through the door any second. A very highly priced set menu, I think the owner and the other patrons were very snobby all thinking they are somewhat special and let... More

A thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. The menu explained well and the food to a very high standard. From the starter to the dessert everything was fresh and cooked perfectly.

This was our second visit to Dom Carlos we went last August (2013). The food is excellent and the friendly atmosphere and attentiveness by Ana and Peter the owners is second to none. Peter explains all the menu items in detail. It is a set menu with 2 choices of entrée, 2 choices of Starter, a fish course, 2 choices... More

We went to Dom Carlos on the invitation of our friends Elaine & Dennis for our 18th Wedding Anniversary and OMG, Why have we have missed this place on all our visits to Portugal! Peter (who's Irish!) & Ana, owners extradonaire, are simply the best hosts we have ever encountered and the personal touch is in abundance! The 5 course... More

Even though we hadn't been before, we were welcomed like old friends, it was lovely. This carried on throughout thr night. Each course was lovingly and carefully described.....what all of the ingredients are... More

My wife and I arrived in Albuferia with no knowledge of the restaurants in the area so used Trip Advisor to guide us. Ideally you need to book in advance and I would recommend you choose to come here on your best night of the holiday as other restaurants after this will not compare. We were greeted by Peter (co-owner... More

For us this was an anniversary night so we were looking forward to a night out on our own with the my parents looking after our 3 yr old daughter - a very rare opportunity so we wanted a great experience to...

Chose this restaurant to celebrate my girlfriends 30th Birthday and we were not disappointed. Service, food and wine were all amazing. Being from Dublin, we had good banter with the owner who along with his wife, ensured we had a memorable evening. Would like to highlight the scallops and the sea bass, cooked to perfection. My girlfriend was treated to... More
