Some 100 m away from the main restaurant area you can find this nice place. Located between the IN- and OUT-road of Carvoeiro. The food was very good and the (red) house win as well.
We had different tapas to start followed by cod and a home made veggie burger for the vegetarian in our group. I would rate the food 4 points or even 5 if you take in account the very moderate prices.
But the service is definitively improvable. Although everyone is quite friendly and polite it is not what you expect. Just some hints: We called the day before in order to get a table outside but at time of arrival all tables on the terrace were all taken. There was silverware missing and even asking twice for it didn't help much. We orders 4 small beers and got 4 big ones, we ask for 3 coffees and one tea and got 4 times coffee.

First ate here two years ago on a previous visit to the area. Good to the high standards have been maintained. In a party of 4 all dishes were excellent (fillet steak, lamb stew and duck), service great with décor and tableware again very good, would have no hesitation in returning

My partner and two friends ate here recently. Due to rain we sat inside. From the off he staff were very friendly and always on hand when we needed something. The owner also made an appearance to ensure we were comfortable and satisfied by our seating arrangements. After ordering our meals were treated to a taster. Our order was meat ball tapas and mushrooms as starters: both were excellent ; fillet steaks , lamb and duck : all superb with special praise for the lamb; creme brûlée got the shout for desert with coffee and brandies almost closing the meal. The owner reappeared with complimentary liqueurs.

We had the house red with the meal which was good quality and great value. The whole meal came in at less than 35 euros each.

I would rate this restaurant highly and will visit it when next in carvoeiro

We returned on our last night after a great experience earlier in the week. We ordered seven delicious dishes (quite a lot for two but we managed it!). Good atmosphere, central location. Nice wine.

We just had another fabulous evening at Taste, a place where the owner seems to really care that the diners are having a great time. On the night we visited there was live music which added to the great atmosphere. But to the most important part, the food, which was wonderful. We shared 3 tapas to start, spicy cheese, creamed leeks and meatballs all very tasty with a fab dip to accompany them. The gorgonzola and spinach pasta as a main was great! The bill for the starters, 2mains, coffee, beer and a bottle of wine was only 51euros. When you consider the complimentary chefs tasters (in our case steak crostini) and complimentary port with the bill the value for money here is unbelievable.
We love 'Taste' and yet again it is our favourite meal of the holiday.
