Does the best liqueur coffee I've had anywhere & the starters & mains are pretty good too! Not so keen on the dessert menu as it is pretty predictable. Fascinating collection of ornaments from witches to miniature musical instruments. Service is always very good.

Great food and our favourite place to eat in a town which has many great places to choose from. For a great night out choose Maxims!

Had a lovely evening here. The staff is really friendly, not fake like some other restaurants in the Algarve. The food was delicious. Simple flavours with a twist and very well prepared. Prices are fair.

This place is something special. We eat here each time we are in Carvoeiro. The food is sublime, each plate that comes out is thoughtfully put together and the food on the plate is delicious. I couldn't find fault at all.

Now this restaurant is definitely the best in town! Absolutely gorgeous food, beautifully presented and tastes as good as it looks. The family run restaurant just gets better and better
