We went to Carvoeiro in June and we went to Colombo's, which is very near the beach. Genina was very welcoming and extremely Nice. The service was great and the food delicious

“Nice location shame about the place”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

In a prominent location - that's the good point. Went on a quiet November evening. The table who came in after us got their order taken first. When I ordered piri piri chicken there was none left. The other table had just ordered it. Ordered soup for my toddler, unfortunately he had nearly finished it by the time our mains arrived. OH had piri piri chicken I had some portugese stew, both were disappointing. Better places to eat.

“Great Service, great food and drink too.”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

There's always been great service, a great atmosphere and great food and drink every time we've been to Colombo's. The people who run it are very welcoming and are happy to let you use their wi-fi! There's a lovely view of the sea and the town centre, and a good variety of seating.

“Always a friendly welcome and both excellent Food and Service”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We have visited Columbo's many times over the years. We have always found the food to be of excellent quality and the service to polite, friendly and professional. Their Menu offers a good choice and the location is great too. A restaurant I would definitely recommend.

“On street dining but strange service”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

We went here and were welcomed in to the restaurant. It is spacious with options to sit in the windows which fold back, or in the main body of the restaurant. The service is very efficient in terms of the 'cover' i.e. the bread and dips served as an appetizer and intial drinks. We however felt that as soon as we didn't order anything fish related we were sidelined to the point of almost being ignored. We went for a chicken dish with sauce and one of our party wanted to have a mixed salad instead of the steamed vegtables. We were told in no uncertain terms that it came with the veg, like it or not, and we were welcome to have a salad if we ordered it seperately and paid for it. Then, quite bizarrely, we were sent over extra vegetables and boiled potatoes with the main course even though we had asked for them not to be served as they would be wasted. At the close of the meal, a charming man came over and offered a complimentary port but it seemed a little odd as we had been largely ignored. However, there were a lot of locals there and the fish that did come out to tables around us looked lovely. I however would think twice about visiting again. Also, it is some little walk to the marina so the prices are really quite expensive in comparison.
