We waited ages to be served then even longer for food. To be fair I think they’d lost the order as when we asked about it (after an hour!) they needed us to say what we had ordered. Sardines were delicious, though pricey. Fab location...More

What a find, a short walk along the broadwalk from Carvoeiro to find this hidden gem down amongst the rocks and caves. Decent food and drink, a definite must visit restaurant for food or just a quick drink.

We visited this restaurant first time at lunch, wedding time for tea. The food is a bit expensive, but good quality. The service was fine. The location is great, although it's got lots of steps to get down to it

This location is stunning, nestled into the cliffs - totally worth a a visit from the boardwalk above and enjoy a cool drink as the night rolls in. Menu is simple, average but very pricey. Skip eating..

This family owned and run restaurant since 1969 is truly a delight. Nestled into Algarve rocks, the setting is simply stunning - and feel free to climb around on the rocks out front! We also had some wonderful meals - the clams were fantastic, as...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.
