lacked atmosphere a bit

normally don't bother as there was 6 of us, but the place was lacking a bit of music to be honest, seats aren't comfortable either! The food was OK, they made the prawn with piri piri extra hot for me which was. We had a big tomahawk steak and although cooked well it did lack a bit of flavour and... read more

Having been to carvoeiro about 7 times and passing this place loads of times we finally decided we wanted a steak . We checked out the prices at the new Wolf steak house up the road but as it was really pricey we opted for Casa do BIfe . Really friendly staff gave us menus then told us about the... More

It's a great idea to be able to cook your own steak. Just how you like it. The veg was perfectly cooked. Unlike some restaurants that like to over boil the veg! I like the choice of either jacket potato or chips. There is not many places where they serve jackets, I'll be back again!

We ate out in Carvoeiro every day for a week, and this was by far my favourite meal. We'd noticed it as they had some tables outside and open windows and the smell of the steaks and lamb being cooked on stones was mouth-watering. What sealed it was the 13 euro offer for steak, choice of potato, and veg/salad! You're... More

This place has the nicest steak I've ever eaten! It's cooked on a stone which means you can cook it whatever way you want. Had the prawns pil pil for starter and they were amazing. Such great value, we had a deal which included bottle of wine so our overall meal was so reasonable.

The restaurant and the novel idea of a stone grill was great. Food alone I would certainly give 5* as you could not fault the stone grill, quality of meat and size of portion. Both me and my girlfriend opted for the stone grill as that was why we chose to go there. We were in view of the other... More

Came here for my birthday meal whilst on holiday in Carvoeiro - definitely the best meal we had all week! We both had fillet steak which was cooked perfectly, and washed down with a nice glass of house red. Have recommended to others that go to the area!

Went to experiencemeat cooked on a stone . Originally wanted the lamb but it had all gone so we chose the veal and were not disappointed. The raw meat came on a red hot stone and you allowed it to cook to your taste. The veal was melt in your mouth. Quite quirky though as each diner had a large... More
