“fantastic ambience and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We love this restaurant, we own a property on the monte santo resort and every year for the last four have been coming here, this is our favourite restaurant in the area although there are many others that are nearly as good, this one has the edge, the staff are so friendly, the service is excellent even though they get very busy, they treat you as if you are the only ones in the restaurant, the tables are well spaced out on the terrace, but make sure you pre book otherwise you will not get an outside table. The food is exceptional here and plenty of it and lots of finishing touches always ending with a drink on the house . I highly recommend this restaurant if you are visiting Carvoeiro, it may be a little off the beaten track but a real hidden gem and well worth a visit, my favourite.

“A gem in Carveiro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Went to this restaurant twice in my first visit to Carveiro! The food was amazing and the staff were so friendly too. Nothing was too much trouble and they greeted us like old friends.

If ever I go back to Carveiro I would definitely return!A must visit restaurant!

“Should be higher in the ratings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

Ate here for first time and will definitely return. Four adults each had starters main and deserts beers and wine and all of us had different selection from menu for each course. Everything was served in a professional way by very polite and friendly waitresses.
We did not think the meals were any more expensive than we have so far paid in other restaurants in the area but the quality and the service received was much higher.
We did not book but arrived at 7pm and they were able to accommodate us however if you want to eat later you would be best advised to reserve a table especially if you want to eat outside.

“A Must.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

We generally eat here at least once each visit to CVO. It's slightly out of town,which makes parking less of a problem.The food is unfailingly good and the waiting staff have been the same for years,which we like. Yes,it is more expensive than many competitors but always busy,it proves that people are prepared to pay for quality.With inside and outside dining available it also caters for different seasons.

“Just wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011

This place is a must for any tourist staying in the Algarve. Maybe not so easy to find but it is worthwhile when you get there. Food is absolutely wonderful.
