Great view

As we live close to Carvoeiro we enjoy re visiting reasturants at different times of the year. We have eaten on the roof terrace and downstairs on the outside terrace....the food is always well prepared and fresh but find the atmosphere lacking...the roof has tables packed together so not much room... read more

On our visit to Carvoreiro, we loved the beach area and the bordering areas but the town centre was rather 'touristy tacky'. We saw Tia Ilda in its elevated position over the right side of the beach and decided to try it. It proved a good choice. We sat on the first floor level (it has a rooftop area too).... More

We chose it because of the view over the beach - but it turned out that the food was simply delicious.. We had the Cataplana which was AMAZING - and service was great... We had even forgotten it was our wedding anniversary as we were on holiday and remembered the next day... We knew there was a reason why this... More

We reserved a table on the roof terrace and were allocated the same table as two years ago with a fab view over the beach/sea. The waiter is very friendly, and funny. As it was halloween he entertained the children with special dracula cocktails and even turned the lights out at one stage to 'spook' the kids! We had 4... More

We were looking for good restaurant for dinner with sea view in Carvoeiro .It was not very easy. Most restaurants located on high street and don't have good view .This restaurant sits on hill and you can see sea and part of town square .It is beautiful . We decided to have traditional Portugal dish. Our choice was Cataplana for... More

We always come here for our 1st meal when we come to Carvoerio. The restaurant has had a huge renovation and is looking fabulous. Service and food great as usual. We had the lasagne, piri piri chicken and the BBQ hat all fabby. Will definitely be back.

Visited here for my birthday while on holiday with my husband and three year old, from the moment we walked in the attention/service was second to none, the waitress recommended a beautiful Portuguese wine, the food was delicious, our daughter had a teddy bear pizza, my husband had the spicy prawns which were delicious, and I was even given a...

Enjoyed our first ever calzone here a couple of decades ago, so could not resist. However, a just adequate pizza with ham, mushrooms and olives did not justify its price of €11.25, despite the partial view available. We had turned our backs on similar priced pizzas the day before in the sensationally attractive location of Albandeira, which would have been... More

The view from here is postcard esque. But the food and menu don't do it justice at all. It's quite expensive, 20.50 for steak and it's literally a steak with a couple of chips and a blob of mustard. No seasoning or veg. And mustard with steak I don't understand. The wine was corked, we mentioned it but it was... More

Menu looked inspiring although priced on higher end. Decor looked nice and fresh, with bustling atmosphere...we were lured in. One waiter looking after over ten tables should have been a warning sign as we seated ourselves. Once our order had been taken by a less then happy to see us waiter we realised we should have gone else where. As... More
