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

White wine was warm, we had to ask for a cooler, we asked for rice with our 2 lots of chicken, 1 had rice the other had chips. We also asked for an adults Spaghetti bog, it arrived and my son said it was like soup. The night before we went to Vilmar and that was superb.

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!

I rated this restaurant as average simply because of the competition in the area. I think this was the dearest meal we had and quality wise no better than others where we paid 40% less. Also the standard of seating,ambiance no better than others in the cheaper price range.

It is unpretentious from the outside: you would probably pass it by,but inside it is full of returning clients all very appreciative of the... More

A fabulous place to eat. The food was fresh, unpretentious and great value. The staff were friendly and appreciative and the surroundings comfortable, clean and bright. A real gem of a restaurant. We will be back and highly recommend a visit to anyone coming to Carvoeiro.
