“Nice place, average food, loud football on TV from bar next door”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

This restaurant is well located in the centre of Carvoeiro, although unfortunately it is right next to a bar which was showing football at the time and all I could hear was that. Columbos seemed to have a radio on at the same time as well.

The restaurant is attractive and the service attentive. I had the spicy prawns and the Portuguese tuna, both of which I enjoyed. My boyfriend had the tapas starter and the fillet steak, which he thought was pretty poor.

“disappointing food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

We placed our orders for a family of four, after which the lady asked us would we like some bread while we were waiting for our food and drinks. The lady did not tell us that the cost of the two petit pains would be €5.00 extra. She should have told us that there was a charge for the bread. The typical portuguese dish of chicken piri piri was a half a chicken chopped up with bones and all. I nearly choked on one of the bones , and a load of cold chips. For a family of four /two adults and two children under ten, four drinks and four meals came to €53.00. It was over priced. There were two tv's blasting some german match out which no one had any interest in apart from the owner. The location is on the main square of carveoiro so i imagine we were paying for their high rental costs

“Always a Warm Welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

I have visited Columbo's many times over the years.

There is always a warm welcome from the owners.

The food and service are excellent too.

Nothing is ever too much trouble.

It is situated just off the main square and is very easy to find.

Would definitely recommend.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

This restaurant is amazing!
About 3 weeks ago, me and my husband went to Lagos for vacations.
And, one night we decided go to Praia Carvoeiro to have a dinner. Then, we found this restaurant with a very nice location, in the center and a great sea view.
I had a typical meal, tuna steak portuguese style, was like a stew with tomato, pepper and fried potatoes. Was delicious! My husband had a special house steak, was a fillet steak with cheese, bacon and pepper sauce. All this with a nice red wine. The desert was also delicious a homemade chocolate mousse.
The waiter was very gently and kind.. And offer us a typical portuguese liquor.
Definitely, we recommend it! One of the best in algarve.
