“Very nice food and restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Lovely place, small so you book your table and you are there all night. The chef and his wife, Peter and Anna, are both very attentive and the chef even gave me his recipe for a soup we had! It is very popular and so you must book. Lovely well cooked food and attention to detail and good value. While we were there Bonnie Tyler was in with her family and Anna informed us Cliff Richard was in the week before...so we obviously picked a good restaurant.

“Superb food and service every time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Myself and seven friends visit portugal every year in July for a golfing break and our annual visit to Dom Carlos is the highlight of our stay. We have been for the last four years running and every time the food and service from Peter and Ana has been first class. They are a lovely couple with a great sense of humour, and go the extra mile for you in terms of service. The five courses vary each time hugely but with one consistent theme.... They are all delicious!!! You get told the life story of the chicken you are about to eat but this all adds to the fun of the evening for us! Can't wait for our next visit and can't recommend this place enough to anyone who enjoys good food and great hospitality. We think the 35 euros per head for five courses is very good value given the quality you are getting, try the dom carlos red wine it goes very well with the steak or without it for that matter!

“What a treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Well what can I say that already hasn't been said?
I did a little research before taking my wife on a surprise holiday for her 50th and our wedding anniversary.
I contacted this restaurant and when we arrived they pulled out all the stops, fantastic meal, unforgettable food, lovely atmosphere. All course were explained in great detail and was a delight. They presented my wife wife with a lovely flower presentation and even baked her a cake to take away with us.
I cannot recommend this establishment enough and look forward to repeating the experience in the future

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Visited this lovely little restaurant after reading Trip Advisor reviews. From the moment we arrived until the time we left we had a truly wonderful experience. The food was delicious, the staff clearly proud of what they have achieved here, explain the menu and suggest wine to accompany food.
Good value and worth a return visit to Albufeira just to go back to this restaurant.
