We used to eat in this restaurant years ago but hadn't been since before Paulo left. We ate there over the new year weekend as other places were closed and we were so glad we did. We had the best meal of our 4 nights in the area. We both had salmon which was lovely - I had mine with... More

My family and I are firm believers in trying the local cuisine where ever we visit and so in our quest for Portuguese cuisine we reached the Casa Algarvia and we were not disappointed but felt the food could have been a little better and the vegetarian a choice a little more. The Chaurico Flambe was very good - the... More

Great place, will definitely come back! Huge portions of food beautifully prepared. Local cuisine. Friendly service and they take their time to explain the dishes well. Recommend the tuna with onions ( huge portion) and the pudding ( caramel) for dessert.

Good fish dishes, both fresh fish and salted cod, and friendly service. Dessert was good as well. The chef made up a fish kebab for one of us who could not decide!

Excellent bacalao (dry salted cod fish). Very good and friendly service, and tasty Potuguese redvine. Visited the restaurant twice under our 2 weeks golfholiday in Carvoeiro.

Great local resturant serving predominantly fish....a hearty Cataplana fish stew did not disappoint nor did the Algarvian squid. Fresh catch of the day to choose from and an extensive menu. The service was very friendly and attentive. A great buzzy evening atmosphere for a mid November Monday night and a welcome find when several other local spots were closed. We... More

Service excellent and food very good at this restaurant. My husband would highly recommend the fish kebab from their specials which was absolutely delicious and huge. I had the catalpana, which was also delicious.

Went in as looked busy always a good sign in our book. staff very attentive and pleasant. Nice varied menu. While looking at the menu we were brought bread garlic mayo and a round of cheese later to discover we were charged 5 euros. Bit naughty when we hadn't ordered it having said that they shot themselves in the foot... More

Of all the restaurants we tried this was the best. We loved it so much we went back on the last night. It is busy with a great atmosphere inside and outside. Staff all excellent, owners serves as well. Friendly and fun service. Food very good. The chorizo that comes flaming on a stand, steaks and fish are all really... More
