We had the set menu which was 5 courses plus wine and coffee. Absolutely delicious. Great value. We paid much more at another well rated Carvoeiro restaurant which did not match the quality, value and taste here.

This was maybe too high class for my family. I felt like embarrased because of all the compliments and about the owner's service. Maybe I am just a jerk :D

This is a fairly expensive restaurant and provides food and service of a standard to be expected for the price. As such I would describe it as good,... More

My wife and I have eaten out every night on our hols at what I call goodish quality restaurants. We heard about Pimenta Preta and were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is out of town towards Centeannes and hidden around the back of the hotel ( so easy to miss at first ) This is a sister place to the Bon... More
