“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Came here 6 yrs ago and enjoyed it. Food still good value - the best covers around for starters ! Family owned and he is still there - a little older and maybe not quite as slim - but just as charming !

“Standard maintained year after year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Our visits to Jota Lita as a party of eight (4 adults and 4 children) have spanned at least 6 years and the quality is always maintained. Recommend that you book as there are not a great number of tables. The food is good quailty and the traditional dishes of chicken kebab, steak portugese style and chicken piri piri are a safe choice. Unlike some other Carvoeiro restaurants Joa and the team are not knocked out of their stride when the place gets busy. The complimentary port at the end of the meal is always a special touch and is excellent quality.

“Gem of a restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Fanastic food and friendly staff. Reserve a table as this restaurant is popular, you can enjoy your meal over a couple of hours you will never feel as if you need to hurry-the staff will not rush you. I can recommend the 'fish of the day' and 'fish cataplana', all meals are served with vegetables,rice and hand cut chips. Meals are finished with a complimentary glass of port-who could ask for more! Thank you Jota Lita for your hospitality.

“Good Portuguese Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Good, attentive staff and good food. Only drawback for me was the lack of a view apart to the main road.
