We ate here in late October. Still busy and many regulars - always a good sign. Quality food in good size portions. Excellent friendly service. Really enjoyed our evening here. Highly recommended.

Ate here a few times whilst in Carvoeiro, the food was lovely and portion sizes big. Couldn't manage it all so asked to take the chicken away (made a lovely sandwich!) which they happily did. Children's meals are expensive compared to other restaurants in the area. See if you can sit round the side of the restaurant, takes you away... More

Ok so I'm an old grouch but why can't people exert at least a modicum of control over their children. We were offered the choice of an inside table or one on the downstairs terrace and mistakenly opted for the terrace. Admittedly there was a children's play area at the end of the terrace so we weren't surprised that there... More

Been walking past this restaurant during many visits to Carvoiero. Decided to give it a try very recently and was not disappointed. Main courses were a very good size for the usual Carvoiero prices and very tasty. Service was ways with a smile. Choice of sitting inside or outside. Really enjoyed the evening and wouldn't hesitate to return.
