Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We love this spot for an afternoon bite. It is unique, beautiful, and the staff and food are wonderful. Phillipa is a Rockstar and always a joy to see! Highly recommended whenever you are in the area!

Yes!! Vegan food in Carvoeiro! Amazing place as it’s a tourist trap amongst rocks and sea yet it actually serves beautiful well presented and tasty food. And for us vegans, a choice of two dishes. So it’s a must visit if you are in Carvoeiro.

Found this place by accident and had high hopes as fresh fish on the grill and nice looking layout. Unfortunately after being shuffled to a table adjacent to the toilets, we were forgotten about and missing a menu. When they came over to take our...order we asked for the missing menu and 3 items. 2 of these items (drinks) arrived however still no sign of the menu or the third item - an ice cream for our daughter. After finishing the 2 drinks and having been forgotten about, we decided to leave. We were charged for all 3 items which we obviously complained about and eventually managed to just pay for the two items we’d received. We left hungry and with a very upset child. Hopefully the place gets better later in the season as the views are stunning but afraid we won’t be back.More

Located in a really cool spot with photo ops. Best time is sunset. The aesthetic itself wasn’t anything special and the food was okay. The tomato mozzarella salad was the best thing we had there. They were super personable and gave us free shots at...the end!More

Dining & enjoying cocktails at Boneca Bar was one of the highlights of our time in Carvoeiro. The atmosphere, with terrific views of the Atlantic, and the great selection of predominantly seafood options were greatly enjoyed.

According to their website they open at 12noon. Arrived about 12:15, we had to put our own chairs out at a table. Staff walking around putting chairs out paying absoutely no attention to the 30 or so custmers waiting to be served!! How can they...not be ready!! Gave it 15 minutes or so to see if any of the staff decided to serve us. We left along with other customer as they had no interest - at this point noboby had been approached for any service. Such ashame as this used to be a lovely place to stop for a drink/lunch!! Not impressed whats so ever, unfortunately wont be going back which is ashame as we have we visited here many times pre-covid. ☹️More

Set in an amazing place within the rocks this is worth visiting. Do book ahead though as it does get busy. There is a queue to see the “window” in the rocks so it does have passing tourists. Food and service excellent.

Lovely welcome oasis at the opposite end of the boardwalk from Carvoiero. The staff are friendly and efficient with delicious icecream. The bar also has a good reputation for food and had an extensive menu inckuding a wide selection of seafood, but we only had...cold drinks and ice cream. Lovely setting for a rest.More

I feel like the Great Wall of china was built faster than we got our food, and it’s not even that great. They view is not as nice as they say and it’s guaranteed you’ll get a monstrosity of a headache from the sun in...your eyes at this so called view. The waiters are also mean and they act as if they are paid to work I would say I WOULD NOT recommend to anyone especially if they have children with them !!!!!!!!! It was painful every moment of the process . Also the toilet stinks so bad the whole restaurant can smell it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!More

Surprisingly empty at times! We were first to arrive at 1pm and place was rammed when we left. Book for best tables 🍸.
