“Best for miles around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

We found this wonderful place by accident a few years ago and, on each successive trip to the Algarve, it's the restaurant we keep coming back to. Each time we try somewhere in Carvoeiro, it pales by comparison with Antoninos. It really is worth the effort to travel a little further out of town to get to it. First class freshly cooked food to suit a variety of palates, friendly service and real value for money. You will not be disappointed!

“Secret little place with lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

This is a great little restaurant very isolated on the outskirts of carvoeiro and benagil.
We are always in a large group 14+ and usually sit outside on a long table that the helpful waitress or owner set up for us.
Sometimes we are the only people in here, sometimes a few other groups and the owner was amazing last summer when he stayed open so we could watch the opening ceremony of the Olympics .

Food is delicious, I personally love the steak, ribs and peri peri chicken plus you get sardines and potato parcels as free appetisers (and carrots and olives)

Good choice and food is always fresh which must be hard for them to always know what to do because its never busy in one go!

Lovely service and a little hidden gem

“Charming waitress and excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Antonino's is a small family restaurant, quite hard to find but the fish and cataplana are excellent. Lovely choice of starters, the usual Portuguese couvert of sardine paste and olive oil.

Charming owners and superb attentive service.

There is really no view except for the car park but we have found that in Portugal, if you go slightly inland, you get much better food, service and value.

It was so good, we went back a second time on our short stay.

Such value too! About EUR 30 per head including aperitif, 3 courses and wine.
