We reviewed here in July and visited again in September. All four of us had prawns a carruagem (sounds dull but certainly wasn't!). Two of us asked for extra spice, which added to the wonderful flavour. We had chips, rice and salad and drank the house wine which is excellent and I think €5.5 a bottle. Simple starters, I had...

As a family we have gone to the Algarve for many, many years. Our two 'must go' to places are Charlotte's Bakery in Almancil, fantastic for cakes and pasteis and restaurant A Carruagem for their fantastic prawns, which are huge, and their steak mignon (or tournedo). We often have a half portion of prawns for starter. They are friendly and... More

Stumbled across this place while waiting for a train on an empty stomach. Interior is beautiful, very professional service. I had a pork tenderloin meal, a beer, and the usual bread and olive entree for 10 euro. Other half had a cod bake casserole situation and wine for 11 euro. I would've loved to have stayed for dessert, alas my... More

I go to "A Carruagem" at least once per year, normally in Summer. If you want excellent food, a friendy enviroment and a fair prices, this is a must go place. Try it once and I'm sure you will become a regular custumer. You will find excellent see food, cooked with wisdom. Try the "jantarinho" or the "guisado algarvio" -... More

We always try to eat here during our annual trip to the Algarve and look forward to the signature dish of prawns a carruagem. Delicious! This is a family-run, well established restaurant and popular with locals. The food is well prepared and portions are generous. Over the years we have been going, it appears little if anything has been done... More

We had a lovely meal, the prawns are delicious. I won't add more on this as much has been written previously. I thought I'd give directions. From Vilamoura, head towards Faro on the N125. The first roundabout you come to (Quatro Esradas), turn left (3rd exit) towards Loule. From memory, I think there is a garden furniture shop on the... More

Have returned at least twice each year for the last twenty! As others have said, a simple family-run restaurant serving excellent quality food at very fair prices. Their simple tomato salad cannot be bettered, wonderful prawn and steak dishes, and why not try the Algarvian Fish Stew (with beans) if you like that sort of thing? Then clear the palate... More

This is not fine dining but the standard of the steaks and prawns are to die for. It is family friendly , the service is excellent and staff are very helpful. On the downside the (very palatable ) house wine has gone up to 8 euros a bottle! The biggest problem is actually finding the restaurant. It is situated at... More
