I had not visited this area for quite some time however what a surprise, great choice of restaurants, new boardwalk along the cliffs at sea front, great evening entertainment in the square at the centre of town and lots to do in the area.
O Patio, Our favourite, located on the beach in the center of Carvoeiro this lovely restaurant offers a lovely selection of fish and meat courses, the turbot and prawns with rice is particularly good and the starter of clams and prawns piri piri are to die for, the friendly staff and location make it a must visit.
Wolf, if you are looking for a good steak and nice ambiance well worth a visit and walking distance to town center
Viamar, for a great value lunch look no further at the top of restaurant hill, the friendly team at Vimar makes this a pleasant stop for an early lunch, try the chicken piri piri and prawns with avocado
Villa Medici very popular restaurant at the top of restaurant hill, would recommend clams starter and prawns with pasta ,busy spot pre book
