Visiting Le Cro is a must do when eating out in Carvoeiro. The owners, Hugo and Marina, are the perfect hosts; professional, knowledgeable and warm. They really know how to make guests feel comfortable and relaxed. The food is so fresh and packed with flavour and each tapas leaves you wanting more. The wines that Hugo recommends with your meal also hit the spot perfectly . We ate there on 2 nights and we wish it was more. We will be back. Thanks for a great time Elaine & Carl.

We had dinner at this place twice. The restaurant is small and very cosy. When it’s warmer at night, you can sit outside as well. The food is home made, fresh and delicious! The couple that runs the restaurant is lovely. They know the word ‘service’ and they are doing a fantastic job!!! Great wines, in which they like to advise you which wine is best whith each tapas they serve. Don’t miss this restaurant!

Our third visit to Le Cro and it won’t be our last. The tapas dishes are excellent, once delivered to your table you are asked which type of wine you prefer and the host will recommend a wine to compliment the dish. Each dish is brought out gradually, there is no rush which enhances the whole dining experience. The owners are such a lovely genuinely friendly couple. Ensure you book as it’s very popular.

We visited twice due to the excellent food, service and relaxed environment. The dishes were all amazing especially the salmon ceviche and desserts. We were equally impressed with the wine suggestions offered by Hugo and his enthusiasm and knowledge of Portuguese wine was amazing. This is well deserving of its number 1 ranking and I would definitely advise booking in advance as it was full every night, even in a quiet time in Carvoeiro.

This seemingly unassuming small Tapas Bar serves what I can only describe as A Babette's Feast of Portugal . Every dish we had was incredibly delicious . We came back 3 times during our week's stay in The Algarve this Easter . You leave in such a good mood as its run by a very charming and dedicated couple Hugo and Marina .They really care for each customer . Marina cooks from wonderfully fresh ingredients , mostly locally sourced. Shes a real artist in the kitchen . So many subtle flavours in each small dish and they are very healthy too .Hugo is a very knowledgeable and charming wine expert and he advises you which Portuguese wine goes best with the dishes you choose. They are a knockout combination . I wish I was back there now .
