Our waiter was very friendly and had a good sense of humour to our silly quips. We had pork fillets with a delicate creamy pepper sauce, perfectly cooked salmon and a delicious Portuguese-style beef steak which defies description (well, seared beef, a slice of ham on top, thickly-sliced potato fries and a delicious red wine sauce). Very interesting and well... More

The interior of the restaurant is nothing special, but the food was very good and the service exceptional from my point of view. The pork with pepper sauce as yummy.

We've been coming here for over 15 years. Yes it's that good. Doesn't look inspiring but the food is great. If John is working, his cheeky chappy tourist banter is delightful. If not, ah, it's not quite the same. Book or turn up early. This place is full all night even in low season. Try the tiger prawns, Portuguese steak... More

We normally pop in once or twice to eat here during our return visits to Carvoeiro. Joao and his staff always look after you well, He banters with all the customers and it seems this year he has been training up one of his young waiters to do the same. The sardines are very good as are the cataplanas. We... More

A must if you are in Carvoeiro. If you visit just one restaurant in Carvoeiro, it must Jota Lita. Joao serves decent Portuguese fare, takes very good care of you along with his staff and you are always assured of a warm welcome.

We had an evening meal here. The food was wonderful - and plenty of it. Service was excellent and the owner supports Spurs! What more could you want?
