4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2014 NEW

Excellent setting, good food, reasonably priced. Good for children, small play area with swings etc. All personally supervised by Mr Julio himself. The chef seems to have been there as long as the restaurant and produces excellent barbecued meat and fish outdoors, which gives a nice aroma to the surroundings

Well, we went back this year after a gap of six years, and if we go to the area a third time would certainly visit again. Not the most exciting of meals, certainly not 'fine dining' but decent enough, although the piri piri chicken didn't have a lot of chicken on it. There is a barbecue area outside so everything...

We go back every year so that should tell you how good this place is. Nice little playground for the kids to use - you can't see if from the tables which is a shame, however the older ones seem to police it well. The food is excellent and the staff are always willing to suggest dishes or make changes... More

We may have gone on a "bad" night but we expected a lot better as it has some good reviews. I had avocado which wasn't ripe for starter and my husband had lamb which was garnished witha big leaf, he had eaten nearly all his meal when he moved the leaf to find a big insect grub under it -... More

Unsure where to pitch our rating because this is the first of our numerous recent Portugese meals to be in the "fine dining" territory. But here goes. 5 stars for excellent ambience; waiting staff who were pleasant and informative with first rate English; speed of service (we had eaten cover items, starter and mains within an hour);quality of the "cover"...

I cannot explain in words just how good this restaurant is for quality of food and service. We turned up (4 of us) on a Thursday night without a booking and the staff could not do enough to find us a great table in the conservatory at the front and ensure our final night in Carvoeiro was really memorable.

Everything was well presented and full of flavour. The layout / decor gave you the impression the bill might be a fright but it was very reasonable at about £120 Euros for 3 courses including wine for four people. According to one our party, the French Onion soup, was the best he had ever eaten (a favourite of his). We... More

10 of us went here for a meal on our 4th night, we were welcomed with a firm handshake and told to take a seat while they sorted out a table for us all to get around outside. The places were set and we were quickly provided with some nibbles (free of charge) while we chose our meals. They were... More

As soon as you enter from the main road you are impressed by the sight you behold. The restaurant is superbly set out and the food is excellent. We dined on the terrace but on venturing inside I was equally impressed. Lovely service, nice wine and a leisurely stroll back to Rocha Brava. A definite most see
