Fado in Carvoeiro?

Hi, does anyone know of any restaurants that host Fado nights in or around Carvoeiro? I understand from posts on the forum that Vimar hosted them on a Thursday last year, but was wondering if there was anywhere else? Cheers, DJ.

Worst meal in Carvoeiro?

What is the worst meal you've had in Carvoeiro and why? I'm not just talking about poor quality food; it could be bad service, atmosphere, wrong company or some other reason. Mine would have to be A Fonte. The food was decent but the ambience was tense and the waitress was the rudest I've encountere...

Re: Perect day in Carvoeiro.

If you had 24 hours in Carvoeiro, what would be the perfect way to spend it? Tell me, I'm intrigued. Well, if I knew that you were there, I would avoid being anywhere next to a road just in case you decided to get p!$$ed and drove :roll: That's a good answer Stevie. I wonder how many of the sensibl...

Re: Casa Algarvia

I went in to book a table a couple of years ago. When I asked for a table for two, outside, the waiter shrugged his shoulders and said 'maybe'. I've never had this response in any restaurant in the world, before or since. Maybe? What's that supposed to mean? Maybe I can have a table for two? Maybe i...

Re: Lanterna Velha

The food has always been good at Lanterna Velha and you get plenty of it. My only complaints would be that because we have a young toddler we are always stuck in that dark, depressing alleyway down the side of the restaurant with the wendy house at the back rather than the veranda at the front. Also...

Re: Portugal: best value for holidays

I visited Carvoeiro in september 2007 after a long absence and couldn't believe how cheap it was in comparison to somewhere like Mallorca. When I came back in september 2009 everything seemed to have almost doubled in price. After reading EMM's post it seems like prices are coming down a bit. If thi...

Hi Helen, I always thought Algarve 2000 was a curry house. Has it changed since last summer?

Re: CVO Restaurants

It would be almost impossible to do an exact count of all the restaurants in Carvoeiro because what counts as Carvoeiro? It's such a sprawling area now that it basically merges into Ferragudo, Lagoa and Benagil. For a rough estimate I'd count all the places on Michael Crane's list and then add 15 or...

Re: Colombos

I would never eat in Colombo's again because in 1987 my mum was bitten on the arm by a mosquito whilst sitting in the lower courtyard. I saw the mosquito on her arm and tried to whack it but it flew away before i could get it and it left a trickle of blood running down my mum's arm.

Re: World Cup 2010

Is it me or is this by far the worst World Cup ever? Every game has been played at snail's pace, every team (apart from Germany) seems more scared of losing rather than trying to win and all the big so called superstars have been anonimous. And if that's not bad enough, what about that awful, sicken...

Is there outdoor seating in the summer? Also, do they welcome well behaved young children?
