Had such a great evening. Even enjoyed the parsnip soup and courgette soup and I don't like either! Delicious food, lovely atmosphere, welcoming hosts. Highly recommend

Having visited many restaurants across Portugal, I have received various welcomes from rigid cold to warm, these have to be the hottest yet Peter and Ana make you feel though you have arrived to join them for a family meal, the decor has the feel and look of a large private house rather than a restaurant. Having been seated I... More

I visited Dom Carlos in May 2016 with my husband and brother and I can honestly say in over 20 years of visiting the algarve I have never had such a wonderful culinary experience. The owners are absolutely delightful with a great sense of humour. My brother loved the food so much he got second helpings kindly offered to him... More

My wife and I were looking for a really good meal during our stay in Albufeira, Portugal. We came across Dom Carlos and they happened to have room for us last minute. There are only a few seatings per night and we scooped one up and boy were we glad. Hands down the best meal of our entire trip. The... More

I planned this particular trip to Portugal so that I could take my boyfriend to Dom Carlos, yes it's that good. I've been going with friends for years and it never disappoints, in fact it gets better and better! The hosts Peter and Ana are wonderful and the food is out of this world. As always it was a dining... More

We wanted to experience this place in the Old Town as it was No 1 on Trip Adviser. It is quite quirky in appearance both inside and outside. The hosts, Peter and Ana talk you through the menu as it is 5 courses and you can swap from Menu A to B. It is a lot of food to eat... More

We were quite insecure whether we would ever get a table here so last minute, but fortunately it was not the busiest tourist season yet. On June it was still possible to get a reservation for four in a very short notice. We were travelling with couple of friends and looking for a place very special; none of the touristic... More

The reviews are absolutely spot on, the standard of food was first rate. The owners look after your every need even down to when commenting on the amazing dessert, asking if I'd like another piece wow! This place is a must visit when visiting Albufiera.
