“Mouthwatering food every time”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

After the winter break we returned to Alvor in February. We could not wait to visit our favourite restaurant Caravella.
We wasn't disappointed, the welcome was warm the food was perfection and the service was second to none, just fantastic!
We cannot wait to go again it cannot come quick enough.

“Caravels revisited”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Having been here once before in October last year, decided to try again and was not disappointed. As last time, even at a quiet time of year and ona Wednesday , its necessary to book as this is a small restaurant with few tables. Staff are very welcoming and the special of stone bass in a caper sauce was excellent, as were goats cheese and honey in puff pastry starter and apple pie desert. Highly recommended.

“Great Food and a very warm welcome”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

We returned to the Caravela again on our latest Visit to Alvor. We went with my in -laws , both in their 80's so they wanted simple tasty food rather than things that just looked pretty. We had the specials on offer that night and all 4 of us had a great meal. The Service was great and as ever they will do anything they can to please.
I really love going out of season because there is a little more time to have a bit of a chat to the people. However on both occasions we ate there it was almost full, not bad for early March.

“Our favourite in Alvor!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Lovely restaurant, fabulous food, great wine, friendly staff... What more do you need! We have eaten here for some years now and have never been disappointed, from the fish to the steak to the delicious four cheese spaghetti, the wines, the deserts and the cheeky little starters, it's all good to us. We will continue to eat there even after moving to Portugal!
