Smilers has the prime position in Carvoeiro. You can sit on the outside terrace and watch the world go by while sitting in the sun all day. Several screens inside for all your sporting needs.

The place is busy for a reason. The food and service is terrific and the servers are helpful. Breakfast first, then afternoon tapas. Lots of choices on tap. Perfect location. Everything was 5 star.
