I had to smile when I read the review about "canned sardines", whoever wrote it has obviously never eaten canned sardines. I can assure you they are fresh, the sauce is a lovely hot piri piri I have them almost every time I go in there as a starter. My wife and me have been going to Happy, s for... More

If you like canned sardines in tomato/piripiri sauce microwaved that is the nicest place to get them. Why the 5th position in the ranking? No reason for this. The only positive is the very nice reception there.

Visited Happy's when on holiday in Carveiro in September having read the great reviews on Trip Adviser. There is no doubt that it is one of the best in Carveiro. We enjoyed it so much that we dined there twice in the week we stayed. Good food,good prices and good complimentary port at the end of our meal. Definitely one... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants in carvoiero. We always make a point of going in our first night to book a table as it is only very small and extremely popular. The food and atmosphere is great and very reasonably priced. The Dutch owner is quite a character and makes everyone feel very welcome.

We ate here at the end of a week in Carvoeiro having read lots of good reviews. I have to say that whilst the food was okay it didn't measure up to the hype and euro for euro wasn't as good as some of the other eateries we used during our week long stay. The prawn and monkfish Kebab was... More

Firstly book in advance as you will struggle to get a table other wise and you will see why once you taste the food.

If you like microwave cooking then this restaurant is for you. I sat at the back of the restaurnt and had a good view of how the food was prepared and was sad to see that everything went in the mirowave. I personally hate this type of cooking as everything arrives far too hot. That said the guy that runs... More

The menu is small, but well thought out and it is clear that everything is freshly prepared - down to the bread and butter. Great veggie selection and tasty hanging kebabs. Judging by the number of people who were turned away as they were fully booked, it is a popular place - with good reason.
