Tried this place by chance and so glad that we did. Friendly staff, great ambience and an extensive menu. All our dishes were great, particularly the fish main courses. Wine very reasonably priced

We were slightly disappointed with this restaurant due to the children's menu offering frozen fish fillets as children's food. The adults in our party had lovely food but the children's fish was worse quality than a fillet of fish from any fast food restaurant.

Our food was really tasty and I could have quite easily eaten the whole lot again. We all had different meals and all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Visited this restaurant when we stayed here in 2016 and had a couple of decent meals there. Tried it again the other night and whilst food was ok was let down by service. Would not return again as a result.

Of all the restaurants in Carvoeiro, the LV offers great food and value better than most. The location is good, service just happens, food is top notch and the price is competitive. Nothing to complain about!

My sister chose this restaurant for her 18th birthday meal while we were on holiday, however the menu's wide variety suggested that the restaurant didn't have it's own 'identity' so to speak. We were seated in the outside area which was pretty and atmospheric, however...More
