“Nice food, quite pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We visited Don Carlos in February - when many other restaurants are shut. The food was nice enough, but there wasn't a burger available for a younger member of the family who ended up having to have a larger adult meal - and paying the full price. The service was good and the staff were friendly.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

A great local restaurant with lots of decent fish, steaks and wine on the menu. Family friendly, but also full of locals and couples, classic Sagres

“Good food, nice local athmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This is CARLOS on the main road (LHS) in town centre going towards the Port yes? We ate here several times. Good Portugese food (lots of fish!) of all types including hamburger for 3yr old. We had the Pork and clams Cataplana for 2 which was very good and typical. Another time we had the mixed fish cooked in the oven. Good value. Both evenings it was full with many locals... a nice athmosphere. Enthusiastic friendly staff... a family place. We were here Dec 23 -Jan 1 when a quiet town. Might be different in August.
