“Too pricey for too little”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

I had a fairly good starter Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil salad and main course, seafood calzone. I was a little suprised that the Calzone (folded pizza) had a whole, in the shell, prawn, in the middle - a little bizarre but admittedly very tasty.
The food was a lot better than Medici (next door) but I wouldn't recommend anyone to go there considering the abundance of other fantastic restaurants in Carvoeiro.

“Nice Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Was a bit wary about service as other reviewers had been negative. Our service was fine. Food was very good and there is a good athmosphere there

“Excellent food and service. A little expensive.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Visited on the 9th August in a party of 8. Original table position outside was poor and we were moved to an inside table which was much better. Quality of the food and wine was very good and overall we had a good experience and would visit again. Excellent fish main course.

“A lovely evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Arrived in Carvoeiro late but the lovely staff (Marco) found us a table. Even though the restaurant was clearly very busy, the food alll arrived on time and was delicious. My husband raves over the seafood pasta, my son almost licked his plate clean and my pizza was perfect. All washed down with a great bottle of wine!

“Shame about the device”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

This is simple. The place is great. The food is great. But the service is really poor. The staff are friendly but everything takes soo long. An hour before starters, 45 minutes between courses. When you have children with you those wait times are a disaster for everyone.
