We decided for this restaurant based on its reviews. Our experience could have been better. While the food and the service were good, we did not feel welcomed by the owner who at our arrival stood blocking the entrance enquiring what we were doing there....We were unpleasantly surprised as we had a reservation and were encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early, which we did. As we were shown our table he stated that the kitchen was closed till 7:00PM and that we would have to wait. All this in an unfriendly manner. After this experience we decided not to return and not reserving the restaurant for a large group dinner party.More

Sorry to say but you made a reservation with the Fork for 7pm. You were standing at the door just before 6.30pm. The restaurant was 't open yet. Thats why I was a bit suprised. So please don't write auch nonsens.

Nice quiet garden area, waiting staff were experienced and organised. Food was very good. Duck, Chicken Stir-fry, Curry, Seafood Pasta all recommend from our party, children's menu is a little expensive and quality could be better (like most places). Overall this is a great restaurant...and will definitely be back.More

Everything about the L'Orange restaurant from the food to the staff was fantastic!!! My only complaint was the amount of food per course was far too much.

Eaten here a few times on our last few visits to Carvoeiro. Everytime the food has been superb & the staff just as good. Sure we’ll be back again.

Visit this place every time we come to Carvoiero and it never disappoints, excellent staff and setting to go with the great food. We have had fish, pasta meat dishes and never been anything but happy. Would advise booking because it's not the biggest place,...a must visit.More

We arrived for an 8pm booking on 13/08/21. The chef was outside and DID NOT look happy to see us. Myself my wife and 3 daughters. We took some photos in the garden (nothing too spectacular) and were mindful not to distract fellow diners. The...staff were on edge it seemed and did not engage in much chat. We have visited the restaurant over the years on our visits to the area. Towards the end of the evening we decided to perhaps call it a night as our youngest was getting a bit restless. What happened next was humiliating and embarrassing for my family. The chef reappeared to chat to fellow diners and turned to me and asked to "keep your kids quiet". Or move your baby. Honestly after being closed for Covid you'd think these guys would love to see returning customers. We had brought both our daughters here previously same time no problem. I suggested the chef ask my 20 month old to be quiet, we were doing our best and honestly there wasn't a peep out of them all night except for some singing (low and happy ) we thought fellow diners were enjoying them. No unruly behaviour no leaving the table nothing. The chef left and I followed him to ask him what he meant. "do not bring your f**king kids here at 8pm" Only bring them at 6 was the response. We paid the bill with the waitress apologising profusely. I told her we would never return and the chef was ignorant. She apologies and explained she had kids herself, the Chef was HER BOSS. The owner of the business told me to keep my kids wqueit or move them and not to "f**king bring them there late". We will never ever return to this establishment, if this is how the owner acts when someone visits from foreign country good luck to him.More

We visited this fab restaurant for the first time this year. The food is fantastic, the service is brilliant with such lovely waiting staff who are friendly and attentive and the setting was so lovely and peaceful. We had a table for 6. A family...of 4, two adults, a 9 year old, a 14 year old and grandparents. We all really enjoyed everything about this restaurant so we returned on two more evenings before we came home. It was very refreshing to have a children’s menu that had proper food for our 9 year old, not the normal chicken nuggets/ fish fingers that most other restaurants offer. I would definitely recommend a visitMore
