It is famous for, and deliver excellent seafood from shellfish to all kind of rare fish. We had Perceves and Peixe Rasgado, barnacles and a variety of Scorpion fish. Fantastic fish, and at a fair price, considering the quality of the food. Very friendly and professional staff! highly recommended to lovers of seafood.

Even if you do not like fresh fish, shellfish or other seafood, they have meat alternatives.... More

We have been coming to Carvi for many, many years. Staff always greets us warmly. Start with shrimp or clams, then go on to one of the daily specials. Prices are reasonable, clientele very typical and local.

As someone allready said, this is where the locals go. The ambiance is maybe not what we are used to in the Netherlands, but hey, we're in Portugal now and here it's the quality of food that matters. I would go back to eat fish any time.
