This place is situated at the top of Restaurant Hill. There is plenty on the menu for any taste and great value for money depending on what you choose. Staff very friendly and attentive. We regularly eat here when we holiday in Carvoeiro.

This is an economic restaraunt for lunch. Four or five choices of a main course, 2 soups or salad and several deserts are available. Food is OK but used to be better. Service not very attentive to customers. Good as an alternative.

We went on the second night of our holiday as the restaurant had been recommended by some local friends again. We have been for the last three summers and it's always packed - but you know how everywhere is busy in the summer. During the winter it's different, lots of places are closed and you hope that the ones that... More

For 9 euros you can't go wrong! Drink, Bread and Olives, Starter, Main (fish or meat), Desert and Coffee... Whats not to love when the local use the place because of the good food and you'll always find the place busy in the summer months.

I would not have gone in if it weren't for 2 people in town recommending this place. The entrance and decor is kind of tacky ( that's the 1 point off) but once you are seated the service is wonderful and the food is great! Had the monkfish risotto which is a fish rice stew in a ceramic pot-highly recommend!... More

We stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant when we were looking for somewhere to eat in Carvoeira (having decided to give our hotel's pricey buffet a miss). We arrived early when the place was relatively empty then watched as it gradually filled up with locals, a sure sign of good food. I chose chicken fillet with mango sauce and it was... More

It was the Christmas break and half the restaurants in Carvoeiro were closed so we could not be accommodated in another restaurant down the road as it was fully booked - but to our luck the Vimar was not only open but happy to welcome us. The service was very good and the staff were very friendly and did their... More

Travelling as 2 couples, we visited Restaurante Vimar for lunch. We all enjoyed our meals and experienced great service. One of the highlights was the desert trolley brought to our table to view available deserts. Delicious, we will definitely return when in Carvoeiro again.

For all the italias who wonderen why the portugese do not combine their standard plates into an italian classic. Here they do! And it was delicious. Being half Italian I may say that it was a different experience from the normal plate service. Big plates with everything one it. Also nice priced wines. Excellent menu offer and good grilled dourade.... More
