We have visited this restaurant many times over the last few years . It is consistently good for both food and service . The lamb chops were really tasty and were head and shoulders above another high rated Carvoeiro restaurant . The location is in a quiet garden/patio area . All round a great... read more

Went to Julios full of expectation after reding the reviews. Food was nice. Good nothing special. We felt that they wanted us in and out we are not regulars and they had their regulars. The staff seemed to be bickering between themselves while entertaining not all that professional ... Overall disappointing, won't be rushing back ....

As per other reviewers, you are given the couvert as standard practice here. It was very busy quite quickly and once that happened the service slowed right down. The main courses were nice enough - had the lamb cooked in wood fired oven, which I was expecting to be slow cooked but was basically just a lamb roast dinner. It... More

Very nice restaurant, though the elevator music was a bit loud. Service was attentive & friendly, but our meal took over 45 minutes to arrive from the time we ordered it. My wife & daughter's steaks were very tender, as was my son's lamb. However my pork was quite chewy. The vegetables & potatoes were very tasty. What tipped it... More

All round a great place for dinner and reasonable value.

This restaurant was by far the best restaurant we visited during our stay in Portugal, so good we went back again before we left. Excellent service, food, premises and value for money. HIGHLY recommend a visit to Julio's - experienced and pleasant staff here.

I have been coming to Julio's for the past 15+ years with my family and we always make sure we have our first and last night here to start and end the holiday in the perfect way. As we have been coming here for many years we have gotten to know the staff, past and present, who are all very... More

We hadn't visited in a while and were all very impressed with the food, service and value for money. The starters were excellent with particular mention for figs with local ham and the asparagus in butter. The mains and desserts were also great. Service from sabina and Eduardo was exemplary. For 4 people all having 3 courses and 2 bottles... More

We had a lovely evening sat in the courtyard of this excellent restaurant. It was very pretty, especially when lit as it got darker. The service was excellent, friendly and professional and the food was superb. As soon as I noticed and smelled the outdoor wood burning oven, I knew I wanted the lamb and I wasn't disappointed. It was... More

Had booked this restaurant as it was a short walk from our villa and looked lovely with a large outside seating area. We then read some reviews and were a bit worried. We didn't need to be. Julios was superb from the moment we arrived. The staff were very attentive and jovial. We sat outside in the evening sunshine, a... More
