The title relates to the request from one member of our group of twelve men that requested his steak on a stone "medium rare please". Given that they deliver the steak to your table as a raw piece of meat sizzling on a hot stone for you to cook yourself with a selection of butters the request caused great amusement throughout the restaurant.
This place probably seats no more than thirty in total and is very popular, so booking is recommended. Expect your booking to be on "Portugal time" though, so thankfully there's a couple of bars next door in which you can wait while the people that are still sat at your table finish up.
The set menus, at various prices up to €45 a couple, are excellent value. We paired up for our three courses plus a bottle of wine between two and no-one left hungry. The atmosphere is excellent - unless twelve blokes pile in of course... - and the service quick and friendly.
We all agreed that this is a must-visit place in Carvoeiro and will definitely be back on our next trip to the town.
