Tried Casa Algarvia by chance. Very busy and we were lucky to get a table. We all chose well and were happy with the food. Service was a bit slow but staff were friendly and attentive. Would go back.

Went for dinner with a friend and had the avocado shrimp cocktail as a starter and it came out so huge that I had serious problems coping with my main. Staff is very friendly, location on the main road in Carvoeiro, service is quick and prizes fair. Recommended.

The overall appearance of the restraunt was good and slightly better inside... More

As usual we visited Casa Algarvia on our trip. The food is always a good standard and although now slightly on the more expensive side of a Portuguese restaurant we enjoyed good steaks, prawn curry and fish kebab

Average is the best description I can think of. Our hotel recommend giving it a go. The service was polite but very slow. The white wine was luke warm even in a chill bag. My meal (Portuguese steak) was adequate enough, though was definitely served well done when requested to be medium. My partner had the tropical chicken which contained... More

We've been going to Casa Algarvia for a few years and it has always been very good. The food was nicely presented and the steaks we had were cooked perfectly. The meal overall was very good value and worked out at half the price we paid in the Wolf Steakhouse which is also in Carvoeiro. Staff are friendly and the... More

Booked table and were seated promptly. Menu was typically Mediterranean which is as expected. Good food well cooked, very tender steaks. Service was a bit rushed but it is busy season. Only criticism is slowish service but we didn't care we are in holiday!

Been here a few times now and found the food and the service to be great. Enjoyed meat and fish done on the outside grill. If you have enough room try the almond tart - scrummy!
