Had another wonderful stay at Carvoeiro, totally spoiled ourselves again. Without a doubt Casa Algarvia is the very best for value,quality and a really friendly staff who remember old (?) faces and thier favourite dishes from the superb menu. Can't wait to return in the spring. Simon & co.

Just spent a week in Carvoeiro, a little far off in a place called Seismarias (?). Close by, a nice restaurant named Original. Excellent food and service though difficult to find. You have to try John´s fish stew !!! Really recommend !

We loved Fernando's at Monte Carvoeiro - great stone steaks and excellent service. Casa Algarvia was also good and O Salmao did good fish. O Cantinha was OK for lunch but, when we returned for dinner they were s-l-o-w and the food was cold! Ice creams (from the place with the web-cam) were wonderful!

Just back from Carvoeiro, food fantastic. Highly recommend getting your hands on a flyer called Freemap available all over the place which suggests places to eat - you won't go wrong with this. L'orange and O Salmao were our 2 favourites on the list...

Been going to Rocha Brava twice a year for ten years now. Best reaturants we have found are 'O' Algar in Benegil, Julio's down from RB, Happy's in Carvoerio (great bloke), 'O' Gale for superb fish, and basically any other restaurant you can find, because in the twenty or so times we have been we can honestly say we have never had a substandard meal. You can't go wrong. If you like the weather warm, the people friendly, and the atmosphere relaxed, come to Carvoeiro!!

Went to restaurant Roma last week, was fantastic, the food & service is great, they have a cherry crumble for dessert which is out of this world. We were on honeymoon and it's settings are so romantic. If the staff read this, a great thanks to all of you who made our evening so pleasant.

We returned from Carvoeiro a couple of weeks ago. Although still reasonable prices, we did find the restaurants a little more expensive now in Euros than last year.

Hi,

Just returned from Lagos and Cavoeiro staying at the Almansor and very pleasantly suprised by the quality of the restuarants and bars! After taking the review pages with us we took strangers recommendations and weren't dissappointed. O Salmao in Monte Carvoeiro was excellent but you needed more then one course if you have a good appetite. Julio's was wonderful and worth every penny but couldn't agree with the ribs in Oasis - plenty of them but nothing out of the ordinary.

For bars try Dirty Nellie's on the one-way coming into Caroeiro. We only found out about it from the free map on our last night and would have loved to have gone back - they only night we were over the limit! Great laugh

Linda & Jim

Only 9 days to go and we'll be back in Carvoeiro. Last year we would recommend Stone Steak at Monte Carvoeiro, O Algar at Benagil and the best fish restaurant was O Litoral (really good this one) at the top of the hill going east from Benagil. Can't wait to try them all again next week! Does anyone know what the Indian is like at Monte Carvoeiro??

My family and i have been going to carvoeiro for the last 12 years and we have never had a really bad meal there. I would highly recommend HAPPYS the food is excellent and the owner/host Libbard is very welcoming. You do need to book as it gets very busy at peak times. Also up the road from Happys is Casa Algarvia that to is excellent and well worth a visit.

We will be back again at last! Best place in the world to pamper yourself and just chill out. Casa Algarvia is superb... Swordfish steak in a creamy safron sauce is the best. Service could not be better. Also try Bubi's on Monte Carv'

Try A Gale for a good family meal. The welome is warm. With a wide choice on the menu from simple dishes for the 'picky' but for the more adventurous try the Cataplanas, excellent!!

I have lived here for almost 20 years, here are my fave eating places. Jardim do Farol (just after Rocha Brava) Julio's (for a special night, take plenty of cash!) Marisqueira ( just after the Mirachoro hotel) O Cantinho (good for steak) Casa Algarvia (very good menu, and nice staff). Out of Carvoeiro and on the road to Benagil is a wonderful fish restuarante called Sulmar (I think) it's on the left going towards Benagil. For pizza nothing can beat O Forno do Fraser(just up past the post office)mmmmm. The take away at the entrance to carvoeiro is also good for a night in, but be careful it is definitly NOT cheap!

Adore the Algarve, and Carvoeiro in particular - stayed at Rocha Brava (self-contained and family friendly) for the second time - wonderful. Delighted to find our favourite restaurant still open and unchanged: Julio's (head waiter, Helder is lovely) down the hill from R.B. on the right hand side. Wonderrful service/food/wine at a reasonable price. Also try Chicken George's home-made foods nearby - he's quite a character and does a lovely Chicken Piri Piri (and takeaways). Looking forward to our next holiday there! Chrissie, Pete & lads
