This was not one our best choices of restaurants in the area. We had been seated and made our food order when we were asked, quite abrubtly to move tables to accomodate a group of 7 who had arrived! Wouldnt recommend the chicken on hot stones as it comes raw and you have to cook it yourself. As the cooked... More

From start to finish this was a wonderful experience for us all. The staff interacted brilliantly with us all and the food was excellent. The setting is lovely but got a tad noisy with larger groups. Definitely worth a visit.

Discovered this delightful restaurant 4 years ago. It was our favourite restaurant of the holiday. We went back to try it this year and again enjoyed it so much we returned two nights later. Service is great, food is delicious and value for money. It's lovely to sit outside while the sun sets..Great ambience.

We decided to eat at Rocha Mar on our first evening in Carvoeiro. We liked it so much we chose to eat there for the whole of our stay. The staff were really friendly and attentive. We were given a glass of Port at the end of our meal as a nice gesture. On our last evening we were given... More

Just about alright food, bit outside Carvoeiro. Place seems well kept and maintained on the surface, but a used knife at the table and a chipped glass. Food is almost average holiday grub

We had a lovely meal at Rocha Mar. We managed to avoid the stainless steel plates which most things were served in and both had seafood kebabs which were delicious - the best we had during our holiday. The restaurant itself is more than a little dated (!) but the food made up for it. We saw lots of people... More

We enjoyed the food, which was a fair price for the quality. Overall experience was spoilt by slow service. It took almost an hour from our arrival to the starters appearing and even the bottle of wine took half an hour from ordering.

We shared the traditional seafood casserole. Absolutely delicious and plentiful. I can't wait to go back to try the steak served at your table with a hot stone to cook yourself.

This restaurant is a MUST go to in Portugal. The food is amazing, best meal I had in a long time. And the atmosphere is so clean, and nicely decorated. Above all though is the service. They are so passionate about what they do,and they treat you so well. Such a great experience. Thank you so much Teago.

Courteous, welcoming, great food, nice atmosphere - no hesitation in recommending. The fish kebab with grilled prawns was excellent. Definitely a place to return to.
