“Very profesional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

This is a lovely restaurant with very high standards of food and service. It’s not the cheapest place you will find to eat in Carvoeiro, but it’s certainly value for money. Service is very attentive without being overbearing, but you will lack for nothing. The dishes they serve are of an equally high standard and they are happy to guide you through the menu. They have some excellent wines as well. A great place for a special occasion.

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

The staff at Pimenta Preta were 100% helpful and informed. Only in one other restaurant recently (in Iceland) have we had such good advice on choices of wine, and full descriptions of the ingredients included in the meals. We had supper here twice and each time 3 courses, and enjoyed every aspect. Reserve your table, sitting alongside the pool perhaps looking up at the stars, and the staff will do everything they can to make your dining experience excellent. Speedy service, but no pressure to vacate 'your' table for the evening. Both times we dined outside, but there is a large inside area for when the weather is poor. This restaurant is independent of Pestana so remember to take money/card with you as you cannot put the charge on your Pestana bill.

“Lovely, lovely, lovely.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014 via mobile

Don't listen to the terrible review. This is up there with any top restaurant I've eaten in, in England. Staff were extremely attentive and food was superb. A bit pricey but worth it. Well worth a visit

“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

This restaurant is in Pestana Palm Gardens timeshare resort and is a great place to eat. We have eaten there on a regular basis since they opened and have had consistently good food and service. Staff are excellent, friendly and welcoming. They are well trained and food and service is of a high standard. Whether you stay in the resort or not this is well worth a visit during a stay in the area.
