A little trip to Carvoeiro, we are staying elsewhere on the Algarve, our first time here. We enjoyed a lovely lunch, excellent fresh sea bass and Portuguese steak and the kids meals were lovely and a good portion size. We will visit again

Really nice place for drink. We sat outside and enjoyed a few drinks here before going out to dinner. Wide range to choose from and good service. Order and pay from your table which is always a win.
