Was not sure what type of welcome we would receive after reading some reviews but we decided to pop in after a wander along the coast. Staff were playful and friendly and drinks were served quickly. Overall happy with our visit.

We have eaten here as a family many times. It’s a ‘must do’ every time we holiday on the Algarve. The location is truly unique and shouldn’t be missed. Great for a drink at sunset or a meal in the evening.

Been visiting Boneca since 1987. A wonderful welcome, fabulous food and a brilliant atmosphere. Boneca is family run and is a must if you are in Carvoeiro. Don’t leave without visiting!

Yes you can drive there and park. You walk down some stairs into the restaurant so not suitable if you have mobility issues. Great to go at sunset! No swimming though sadly.

I wouldn’t think so, I would think cava more like considering the style of dining , more like a high end cafe. You’re paying for the view, however I’m sure they must be on Twitter or Instagram , try looking on social media... More
