The food here is excellent. Try the grilled steak and chocolate crepes for dessert. The lights are shaped like bowler hats.

The resturant looked smart and there was room available so we went in. I now know why there was room, the food quality was very poor. The staff were very pleasant however this did not compensate for the food. I ordered a vegetable roll as I am vegetarian, it was advertised as a stuffed vegetable leaf. It actually was a... More

This is a real foodie place, we have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. Our visits, twice, this time was again just great. Will certainly return next time in Carvoeiro.

Were here a couple of times during our holiday. The staff is very friendly and the food was of a good constant quality. Wines are good and atmosphere very cosy. When on vacation in Carvoeiro, worth the visit.

I've previously called this (a banker) as I rated the standard of cooking, whilst disliking the eclectic decor. On our latest visit I was impressed to find the place decluttered, although I don't understand why some very weird items have been kept; i.e flying geese,and others added, hats replacing light shades. A new feature was a set three course menu... More

Had very high expectations for this restaurant, no table available when we dropped in so we went for a drink and came back c.20 mins later. Service was good, the issue was the food, the meatballs to start had a congealed sauce over them when they arrived at the table, they were grey in the centre and overall very unpleasant.... More
