We keep going back

I love this family run restaurant, we are always warmly welcomed by the staff, the fish is always fresh and delicious and the rest of the dishes are as good as the fish. I haven't met anyone that doesn't enjoy visiting this restaurant. Excellent!

Carlos has been a milestone of our Portuguese food enjoyment, since 2009. We made a point out of eating there every second evening - even though we love trying new restaurants and different food - but Carlos is a type of a place where you simply can't resist going back, only to try more things from their menu, because we...

We were just wandering around the Algarve (lost as usual) when we happened upon this little gem. It looked authentic and sincere and it turned out to be just those things. In the spirit of adventure (because I'm not so fond of fish) we ordered the seafood special at 38 euros for two. We shared bream, golden bream, something else... More

We liked the very generous and the wait staff was attentive. However, we enjoyed two other restaurants more.

We were having a lunch and, in comparative with the quality of the fish, the price it was extremely expensive. Anyway, we enjoyed very much the shells but the fish was normal.

Very friendly and welcoming service, fair prices and typical Portugese fare. Good wine. This place is always packed (with locals) and with good reason. We'll definitely come back.

We ate here in June 2014. Whilst not being the best meal on our trip to the Algarve, we found the food was more than good enough and the service was very friendly. We came as a family (3yr old and 1yr old) and we all ate well and they had a high chair. Worth a visit and price was... More

During our stay in Sagres we have been approx 3 times for dinner. The staff is very freindly and the restaurant is also offering WiFI (for those who have to post food pictures to their social media profiles) They are offering outdoor seating which is preferable since indoor it is pretty full and loud. The food they are serving is... More

My boyfriend and I came here last night. We had just arrived Sagres and we're looking forward to our first evening eating good Portuguese food. On walking past it ticked all of the boxes, it was busy and there was a waiting list to get a table. We agreed to wait and asked for a bottle of red wine to... More
