We have been coming to the Algarve for over 25 years and seen many restaurants come and go, good and bad. This was our first time at Julio's even though its within walking distance of our place. Why? Simply we have been told in the the past that its expensive and not that good. On first impressions the restaurant appears... More

This little gem became our nightly ritual. A few times for dinner and the rest for after dinner drinks and dessert. It is lovely! Well priced, great service and delicious food. It is a must if you are visiting Carviero.

This restaurant is a lovely setting but having heard a lot about it we were very disappointed in the food which we felt was pretty average compared to other restaurants in the Rocha Brava area.

I have visited once a year for the last nine years when visiting family in the area. Its not a cheap dinner, more a place to make an evening of. Rack of Lamb is lovely. So is the seafood.

We came across this restaurant by accident whilst out walking in the area and we were taken by the menu and the prices so gave it a go that evening. Unfortunately this was our last night in Carvoeiro otherwise we would have visited before. It is a little way out of Carvoeiro - about 2/3km or so from the town... More

Went here on our first night in Portugal. The place was full but they managed to find us a table for 4 which was the kitchen and out door BBQ. This wasn't a problem because we booked earlier that evening. The food was excellent,is a little pricier than most locally and service was OK bearing in mind it was very... More

Julio's is obviously very popular and therefore busy so it is a real shame that they don't employ a few more staff or at least just tell their waiters that running around complaining to customers how rushed they are doesn't make for a relaxing meal!! The food, when we managed to order it and after the long wait, was excellent... More

I really do not need to write anything else because it was perfect. From the service ( extra consideration for my grandson) to the delightful flavourful food to the wonderful wine - perfect. Always go here at least twice a year probably will make it three times this year. Great meal in great surroundings - highly recommend.

We have been going to Julio's restaurant every time we come back to Carvoeiro, which is most years. The service is always excellent and the food very good with a good choice.
