The Dom Carlos is situated in the old town of Albufeira and run by Peter and Ana. It’s not your normal type of menu but one created by Peter each day from local fresh ingredients. The dinner has five courses priced at €49. It would be considered fine dining. The restaurant has an excellent wine list too ranging from mid... More

The menu had plenty of variety and it's clear that Peter pours his heart into his work in the kitchen. Ana is a lovely hostess. We enjoyed the appetizers, meat dish and dessert the most... But it...

A nice cosy authentic setting with a truly exceptional couple as hosts who were friendly and chatty throughout and provided lots of information on each course. I even got Peter to... More

We had the good fortune visit this restaurant when we were in Albuferia, as it was our anniversary we wanted to go somewhere special, we were not disappointed. From start to finish it was a wonderful experience. The decor is so clean and fresh but also so well co-ordinated that you instantly feel at ease. Ana & Peter were amazing... More

The husband & wife team who run this lovely place make you feel like you are a guest in their home. The service attentive yet friendly, the setting elegant and the food very refined. Upon making reservations you are informed that the menus is a five course price fixed dinner. You can mix and match between two five course selections.... More

The building and the interiors are absolutely beautiful and the owners were delightful and welcoming. We ordered a bottle of white wine to go with our 5 course meal, the wine list was quite extensive which is great for those who... More
