If you want to enjoy real good portuguese food this is the right place. Very nice staff, fresh fish and seafood and reasonable prices. Dont miss it! My recommendation is the cataplana de cherne.

My wife and I were taken here by friends having been to see our local football team play about a year ago. What a find, we have been visiting frequently since. This restaurnat has been here for years and if you love fish or seafood, you will not find one much better. I love the Prawn Açorda which is a dish from the Alentejo area of Portugal and is too unique to describe. If you go to the restaurante, go hungry! Frsh fish is to die for and the cover dishes they bring if you want them are awesome. One of our favourites, tru Portuguese fare where the locals and tourists rub shoulders! Enjoy

We have been visiting this restaurant for the last five years ,since been taken by a local , to be honest we would have passed by BUT what a find .
Its always on our must visit restaurants ,when in the Algarve It has never disappointed us
We went as a family ( 11 ) wonderful mixture of dishes ,and excellant service (The grand child all live & work in London so they are rather experience in good food )
The family are already planning their return in June 12 Please do try the great range of portuguese food on offer you will not be disapointed

MARISQUEIRA CARVI, PORTIMAO

Have been coming here for 7-8 years. The seafood is still tasty after all these years and super fresh in this restaurant, which is 200-300 metres from town centre to the North and 200-300 metres from the riverfront to the West. Even if you do not like fresh fish, shellfish or other seafood, they have meat alternatives. An assortment of grilled fish or fresh shellfish are an excellent one course filling lunch. If you can manage 3 courses - enjoy.

It is not obvious from Tripadvisor website, but the correct address is Rua Direita 34a, Portimao, 8500-625 PORTUGAL, not Rua Direita 34a, PORTUGAL. There ismore than one Rua Direita in PORTUGAL!!

We have been coming to Carvi for many, many years. Staff always greets us warmly. Start with shrimp or clams, then go on to one of the daily specials. Prices are reasonable, clientele very typical and local.
