In my opinion this is the best place for a meal in Sagres off season. Staff is friendly and the food very tasty. Nothing fancy or pretentious, just good portuguese food and wine At decent prices

Just arrived in Sagres and went looking for dinner. Not much life and not many places open. This was an exception. Quite busy and some good simple fare, particularly the fresh fish. We felt that we could eat our way through the menu over the next couple of weeks.

We had the convert which included a ricotta type cheese, a tin of sardine paste and some marinated sardines and then had fish each (sea bream and golden brim) which were served with good boiled potatoes, carrots (soggy) beans and a small salad – which washed down with a Vinho Verde (green wine) was a pleasant enough meal. Properly fish... More

Fun and friendly service. Food was excellent (try the cataplana) and good value. Wine selection solid with a couple of really good alentejo reds on offer. Pleasant experience.

It was a very friendly place to eat. The portion were very large and the food was excellent. It was mostly fish on the menu but that is why we went to Portugal. It open after 7:00 PM.

This restaurant wasn't recommend by Lonely Planet or Rick Steves but was probably every bit as good for typical Sagres food with fresh fish, well prepared in a couple of ways, accompanied by good wine and served by knowledgeable and friendly waiters. I definitely would recommend it.

My husband and I just had a fabulous meal at Carlos restaurant. The mussels I had were superb. Supposedly a first course,it was a huge serving. I had all I could do to finish it. My husband's lamb chops were also a generous helping, served with salad and fries. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable.

We went to Restaurant Carlos, and this was in our first night in Sagres. The place is jam packed, and you can overhear your neighbors (and they can overhear you), so you should be discrete. In our case it did not matter too much because we were one of two American couples there. The other must have heard me while... More
