Located in a really cool spot with photo ops. Best time is sunset. The aesthetic itself wasn’t anything special and the food was okay. The tomato mozzarella salad was the best thing we had there. They were super personable and gave us free shots at...the end!More

Dining & enjoying cocktails at Boneca Bar was one of the highlights of our time in Carvoeiro. The atmosphere, with terrific views of the Atlantic, and the great selection of predominantly seafood options were greatly enjoyed.

According to their website they open at 12noon. Arrived about 12:15, we had to put our own chairs out at a table. Staff walking around putting chairs out paying absoutely no attention to the 30 or so custmers waiting to be served!! How can they...not be ready!! Gave it 15 minutes or so to see if any of the staff decided to serve us. We left along with other customer as they had no interest - at this point noboby had been approached for any service. Such ashame as this used to be a lovely place to stop for a drink/lunch!! Not impressed whats so ever, unfortunately wont be going back which is ashame as we have we visited here many times pre-covid. ☹️More

Set in an amazing place within the rocks this is worth visiting. Do book ahead though as it does get busy. There is a queue to see the “window” in the rocks so it does have passing tourists. Food and service excellent.

Lovely welcome oasis at the opposite end of the boardwalk from Carvoiero. The staff are friendly and efficient with delicious icecream. The bar also has a good reputation for food and had an extensive menu inckuding a wide selection of seafood, but we only had...cold drinks and ice cream. Lovely setting for a rest.More

I feel like the Great Wall of china was built faster than we got our food, and it’s not even that great. They view is not as nice as they say and it’s guaranteed you’ll get a monstrosity of a headache from the sun in...your eyes at this so called view. The waiters are also mean and they act as if they are paid to work I would say I WOULD NOT recommend to anyone especially if they have children with them !!!!!!!!! It was painful every moment of the process . Also the toilet stinks so bad the whole restaurant can smell it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!More

Came here as it has been recommended to us and unfortunately it failed to live up to any positives we were told. Before I start the staff were nice and friendly (apart from one lady who failed to offer any form of apology for bringing...starters and mains together) and of course the tasteless food is no fault of theirs. As above, our starters and mains arrived at the same time with no apology or acknowledgment. The food was then also quite sub par. Most of us has the prawns which were bland at best. The mains had between us included; the ribs, the burger, the peri peri chicken and the grilled chicken breast, all which came with chips and salad. The peri peri chicken was very dry and again wasn’t very flavoursome. The ribs were nice with zero complaints, however the grilled chicken breast and the burger were both uneaten and sent back again with no questions asked about why these were left. The chips were also very poor. In fairness to the staff later at bill payment they offered compensation and as mentioned above were very nice and apologetic, however, if this review was on food quality alone it would be a 1.More

We were with other potential customers waiting for a table at lunch in the scorching sun in 33C. Nobody in the restaurant bothered to even recognize us. When people left they put reserved signs on the table. After waiting 30mins I asked one of the...staff how long it might take and he was completely dismissive and wouldn’t even give us a time estimate. Staff are clearly arrogant and don’t care about customers because their location is so lovely. But if you want to be treated respectfully don’t dine here!More

Dramatic location. Great staff. Only issue with our table was the view of the loos. Food was v good. I had pez espada which was a very good size portion and cooked very well. The chips with it were disappointing. The sale was good. Others...he sardines said yummy. Burgers and peri peri kitchen all lip smacking. A great beach bar where you can kick your shoes off and relax.More

The location was the draw and just wanted a simple charcoal cooked bite and opted for spare ribs instead of fish! Unusually they were lamb riblets which was a great surprise and completely hit the mark! Simple char grilled lamb ribs, if you like that...sort of stuff which I do!( I also couldn't miss out on fish and the spicy fish soup was also an unexpected delight)!More

Surprisingly empty at times! We were first to arrive at 1pm and place was rammed when we left. Book for best tables 🍸.
