This, along with Tia Ilda has to be my favourite restaurant in Carvoeiro. This was definitely the find of our trip. We'd walked past Jota Lita a few times and dismissed it as a dive (albeit always full). We sceptically went here to eat after being recommended it by a local. We were not disappointed. The staff were friendly, helpful... More

We visited this restaurant because of the great Tripadvisor reviews it had... DON'T BE FOOLED. The restaurant looks more like a cheap bar with all the football scarves and flags that adorn the walls... not really creating a relaxing restaurant setting. I had the Tuna which was huge however it was flavourless, dry and was served with "out of the... More

At least twice a year my wife and I visit Carvoeiro and always go to Jota Lita's. The atmosphere is relaxed, the staff friendly, the food good and value for money. Enjoy a glass of port (or two) after the meal. It is a must for football followers John is a football fanatic, scarves from clubs everywhere in the restaurant.... More

Cosy friendly restaurant, cannot recommend the fish highly enough! Huge sea bass, salmon etc served with heaps of potatoes, beans, broccoli, fluffy rice and home cooked fries. Chocolate and strawberry gateaux to die for. Couple of shots of port come with the bill. Super efficient friendly staff.

Jolla Lita's has been a favourite restaurant for many years. The food quality and portion size is excellent and the host John is always friendly with a great sense of humour. The couverts are the best in Carvoeiro and the main menu offers a great choice. We will be back in September.

We ate here twice during our 2 wk holiday. The food was beautiful so fresh and lots of choice. I had the sea bass it was gorgeous and so reasonably priced. The waiters are also very nice and friendly I loved this place. The only downside wax the location which is why the price isn't as expensive as the seafront... More

Ate here many times during our 2 week stay, and have done so for a lot of years. Some of the staff may change but the food, service and atmosphere is always the same - second to none. The only down side is that it is now so popular that occasionally you have to go to the bar next door... More

Ate there twice on our 4 day trip as it was so good the first time we ate there. Fresh fish was stunning and the Vinho Tinto a la Casa was really nice for a nice price. Great waitress who was fun and attentive without overpowering. Has a family run feel to it and everything was done with a great... More

Would just like to say everything about this restaurant is 100% perfect!! Great place, great food and staff are so friendly, funny and amusing. Go to Carvoeiro as much as I can and this is the restaurant I will go most of the time individual days. I see there was a poor review about it from JT1985 about John flirting... More
