As others have commented, the setting here is pretty perfect - down a coastal road to a comparatively small number of tables laid out between the cliffs with some views out to sea. And our experience as a group of friends was that that was...More

We walked along the boardwalk to here and had a coffee after taking some photos of the cave and blowhole. They do serve food, but we didn't eat here

What a lovely place. We stopped for lunch and had the Piri piri chicken which was very nice. Fantastic place to walk around with stunning views definitely worth a visit.

We visited at night and to see the place lit up from above, it looks stunning. It gave the feeling that we were going to have a special night. Unfortunately that feeling dissapated when we arrived and were met by a waiter. He was surly,...More

Loved the location, it really is hard to beat. We arrived having booked a table over the phone and had to stand our ground and show them the call log on my phone as they claimed they had no reservation in our name. Thankfully they...More

I wouldn’t think so, I would think cava more like considering the style of dining , more like a high end cafe. You’re paying for the view, however I’m sure they must be on Twitter or Instagram , try looking on social media... More

Carvoeiro beach is the nearest beach from the Boneca Bar/Restaurant. It’s an easy 15 minute walk down along the Boardwalk to the Church and then down the steep road to the beach.
