We enjoyed a meal if fresh bream and piri piri chicken. Appetizers were a fresh cheese, olives and a fresh octopus bean salad. The waiter was very nice, as was the wine.

When we ordered the food we had chosen, something funny happened: the waiter told each of us, no that is not good get that instead. This fish no - it is not good today get that fish. No that dish is very heavy for the evening- get that dish instead. Such honesty in a restaurant i have never come upon... More

Recommended by hotel - this was walking distance . Friendly staff and good choice of dishes. Prawn starter was very good but the main fish dish was overlooked and a bit hard in places . The vegetables were very overdone . Think we were just unlucky as other reviews better. Also as we had some great fish at a beach... More

Good restaurant in Sagres. I took the pork with clams, it is quite original but very good. Quantities are good and prices are fair. The city itself is a bit strange, quite empty...

Stayed in Sagres for 12 days last September, tried many restaurants but Carlos was our favourite - we went 3 times without booking but were always found a table. Fantastic family restaurant with delicious food, lots of it,and welcoming staff. We will visit the town and this restaurant again.

We visited this restaurant last year and wanted to go back and try it again, even though we weren't staying nearby. We wasn't disappointed last time and we wasn't this time. We both had the bread, cheese, olives etc to start which were lovely, loved the anchovies in garlic and olive oil, they were Devine. We then had Piri Piri... More
