The setting for this resaraunt is absolutely fantastic. I couldnt compare it to anywhere else. The location alone is enough to make it worth a visit but I must say the food was also very good. A nice variety of fresh fish cooked simply and...More

Food is always good, if a touch pricey but you are paying for the terrific location atop the cliffs outside Carvoeiro. Recommend the cataplana with monkfish, clams etc.

We walked up the hill from Carvoeiro towards Monte Carvoeiro. It was twilight but the views out over the bay were spectacular (see pics). The menu was a bit more imaginative than anything we had seen in the town centre. We liked the look of...More

Amazing location for open-air dining. Great menu but if you like fish then just select the fresh catch of the day. The sardines and prawns done on the open grill were superb with excellent wines to match. The grandchildren loved their kids menu and explored...More

Eaten here twice. Fair price for fresh food: Cataplana or fish skewer or Solo meuniere. Even for the kids. Don't expect high class kitchen. Terrace with cheap plastic chairs and tables but I don't mind. Inside pretty cousy and nicely decorated. Clean.

Went there after spending a nice afternoon at the beach Praia do paraiso. The view is one of the best in town but the decor and the food was not comparable to it. You should hire a real chef or sell it to someone who...More

Views out to sea are lovely and surprisingly rare for local restaurants and great to be able to park outside but, although the fish in the cataplana was cooked well, the sauce completely lacked flavour, as did the Gazpacho. The sea bass was on the...More

Whilst not an expert the access to the restaurant is on the same level as the car park so it should be ok.
