The food here was absolutely superb, the staff friendly and the Restaurant was clean and welcoming, slightly more expensive than other Restaurants in town but well worth the extra, would highly recommend a visit (or two)!

We found this place and then couldn't keep away! lovely décor and ambience, and the staff were fabulous. We enjoyed some delicious tapas, Prawn kebabs (beyond delicious), Stone Bass and steak on the stone. Price wise very similar to most places which we had eaten, but in comparison to a few others felt a little more special. A fantastic dining experience!

Very disappointed in our visit to Caravela.
Six of us visited this restaurant in July 2013 and five out of six were very disappointed with their meals. I can safely say that none of us will ever visit this restaurant again.

Its the first time we have eaten here in 5 years of going to Alvor and for some reason we always just walked past as it looked too busy. Went in on the off chance and managed to get a table for the 4 of us. We all had different starters and mains and we were all happy with the choices. The only criticism I would have is that the tables are extremely close together so felt like we were having a meal with the ones sat next to me which I personally don't like

Out of ten days we dined here five times, this was purely because we had delicious food cooked to order with beautiful fresh food and vegetables. It was truly amazing there were three adults and one child dinning and the menu has everything to suit all our tastes.
The fish was beautiful as was the steak on the stone, our grandson also had a lovely menu to choose from which was equally as well presented as the adult meals.
The house dessert is to die for as are the delicious strawberries which our grandson loved.
The service was excellent and everyone is so friendly.
Fantastic all round!
