A wonderful restaurant with a great welcome every time we return. Fransisco is the perfect host and the food is just superb, even though we generally only manage to go twice a year our 'usual' table is always reserved when we book - A must!

I've been to Alvor three times, and I discovered Caravela on the second - I couldn't wait to go back on my third visit! We sat outside this time, which was lovely, and I had the Algarve steak, which was even better than the first time I had it. The cocktails are lovely, the puddings are delicious, and the staff are great too. I can't fault it.

We had a ten day stay in Alvor and we dined here four times, that speaks volumes in my eyes, for the wonderful food, excellent service and great atmosphere. We are always made very welcome as all his customers are. The fish, steak and chicken we can recommend without a doubt.
Fantastic restaurant at a reasonable price.

We had a very nice meal of pork medallions in a fruity sauce. Quite unusual and very tasty. Unfortunately we did not discover it until our 2nd week or we would have done another visit. The service was good and the price was on a par with the other nice restaurants in Alvor.
