Went there on the opening night( many years ago) been going ever since at least once each visit to Cav. Had worse food in a Michelin starred joint. Julio is most particular, the always fresh décor ,table settings and surroundings are immaculate, as are the staff and the service. You need to book and ask for a round table or... More

Another excellent meal at this, one of our favourite restaurants. Pleasant, friendly, efficient staff served brilliant food again. First impressions are that this is an expensive restaurant. Look again, the restaurant is professionally and expertly run but the size of your bill does not reflect additional charges. We left after a lovely meal convinced that we can recommend it to...

We have been coming to the Algarve for over 25 years and seen many restaurants come and go, good and bad. This was our first time at Julio's even though its within walking distance of our place. Why? Simply we have been told in the the past that its expensive and not that good. On first impressions the restaurant appears... More

This little gem became our nightly ritual. A few times for dinner and the rest for after dinner drinks and dessert. It is lovely! Well priced, great service and delicious food. It is a must if you are visiting Carviero.

This restaurant is a lovely setting but having heard a lot about it we were very disappointed in the food which we felt was pretty average compared to other restaurants in the Rocha Brava area.

I have visited once a year for the last nine years when visiting family in the area. Its not a cheap dinner, more a place to make an evening of. Rack of Lamb is lovely. So is the seafood.

We came across this restaurant by accident whilst out walking in the area and we were taken by the menu and the prices so gave it a go that evening. Unfortunately this was our last night in Carvoeiro otherwise we would have visited before. It is a little way out of Carvoeiro - about 2/3km or so from the town... More

Went here on our first night in Portugal. The place was full but they managed to find us a table for 4 which was the kitchen and out door BBQ. This wasn't a problem because we booked earlier that evening. The food was excellent,is a little pricier than most locally and service was OK bearing in mind it was very... More

Julio's is obviously very popular and therefore busy so it is a real shame that they don't employ a few more staff or at least just tell their waiters that running around complaining to customers how rushed they are doesn't make for a relaxing meal!! The food, when we managed to order it and after the long wait, was excellent... More
