How anyone can write a 1 star review for this restaurant completely baffles me. Anibal was really upset because he has very high standards which we have experienced over many visits. Keep doing what your are doing Anibal and ignore such reviews Sandra & Cowley Ryan

Visited whilst on holiday in Carvoeiro. Quite a nice setting in the Villa Nova complex. The restaurant is next to the swimming pool on the complex. You can eat inside or outside near the pool. Very good quality food with excellent service. The only downside was no real veggie options which is a shame as the menu apart from this... More

Visited this restaurant recently as a family group having eaten there twice last year whilst staying at the nearby Monte Santo Resort. The restaurant is outside the centre if Carvoeiro but is well worth a visit. As mentioned by a previous reviewer the only downside is the dessert menu. The choice of fresh fish is excellent and is expertly filleted... More

We visited this restaurant based on the positive reviews on trip advisor. Hands down the worst meal we'd eaten in carvoeiro. Service was poor, food was worse. Toilets stank, restaurant was out of town. No price difference between this place and the good restaurants in town at all. Would imagine this place wouldn't last 2 minutes was it not attached...

Just back from our fourth stay in Carvoeiro. Anibal and his staff are so professional, so friendly, and the food is superb. Highly recommended, as ever.

Out of the way in Carvoeiro as it is not in the town but every taxi driver knows where it is and believe me it is worth going out of your way visit this restaurant. Fantastic meal, with the exception of desert which let it down a little, hence the "very good rating" and not "excellent". The service was excellent... More
