Third visit

This was our third return to Tia Ilda. We ate on the top terrace which is open to the sea, which was getting a bit windy in Oct but still manageable. Jose our waiter is a lot of fun and slightly mad. We enjoyed chatting to him and the food (pizza) was excellent as usual. The deserts aren't so... read more

We were in Carvoeiro on my birthday and saw the Tia Ilda perched on the cliff side over looking the beach and thought it might be a good place for a nice lunch with a good view. We made an excellent choice. The restaurant was beautifully decorated in a festive manner as it was December and we had a great... More

We ate here towards the end of our stay, the seafood was amazing and plentiful. My husband had the meat kebab it was fit for a giant. Good food reasonably priced.

We spotted Tia Ilda from the other side of the bay as we were returning from the cliff-top walk. It looked like it enjoyed great views and on entering we weren't wrong! Our table gave us a perfect setting and we greatly enjoyed our freshly grilled sardine lunch. Service was very friendly and we'd have no reservations in returning here... More

We decided that we couldn't leave Portugal without eating Frango (chicken) Piri Piri. We are huge fans of Nandos in the uk so were hoping for even better. We had read that Tia Ilda was a good place for this and that it had great views. They weren't wrong on the views..this restaurant is on the hill overlooking the beach.... More

Although empty downstairs when we arrived, don't let that put you off. There is a great rustic terrace upstairs with fab views of the town and beach. We all had kebabs with tender meat and tasty vegetables. Service was good. Not cheap but value for money.

A nice seafood restaurant with lovely views over the beach. Perhaps a bit expensive when travelling with children but food and service were good.
