Just ate at this amazing place. Was recommended by our hotel. It's the real deal .... we started with fresh prawns followed by the mixed fish platter .... oh Wow! The food was incredible and full of flavour and the recommended wine was a perfect match. Add this place to your must visit list!

A wonderful meal. We had the fish risotto and it was a very good deal. Lots of fish. Great atmosphere. Obviously a popular destination.

Restaurante Carlos was an unexpected treat to discover in the windswept coastal town of Vila de Sagres. I am sure the town has its own charms, but, like most tourists, we found ourselves there after visiting the Fort (well worth the trip in itself). We hunted around for somewhere to eat. The town, beaten by the coastal winds, didn't quite... More

Nice unpretentious place with a nice terrace. Everything looks new, but not especially cosy. Good traditional food, served in abundant portions. Food is the strong point here. Average service. The prices are good, moderate or just a bit under that.

on a day trip and ended up here completely at random. The two of us ordered sardines and we ended up with a plate of about 20. Lovely meal with good friendly service. Recommended.

It seems that most of this towns restaurants are setup for the foreign clientele and not The Portuguese. We ate here due to our restaurant being close for vacation. I felt like We were at a diner in the states. If you want to dine Portuguese go to ,Villa Velha Down the street when open.

We found Carlos the perfect restaurant for our party of six. First visit the garlic king prawns stole the show with four of us having this on our return. All the other fish dishes were cooked for perfection and the pork with clams was delightful. The staff were good fun and although the restaurant was extremely busy we were well... More
