We went there twice. each time superb. Peter the chef is very enthusiastic about sourcing his food five courses and the dishes are very tasty. It is worth restricting your intake during the day as the five courses are quite filling! Ana is very good at managing the front of house and making sure everyone is happy. Tip: the recommended house wines are lovely.

This is a FANTASTIC restaurant. We booked for the Saturday evening of our holiday and had a fabulous five course meal. Unfortunately, I had no space left for a pudding but was given a "Doggy Bag" of fresh strawberries to take away they were lovely and so juicy.

Can I just say the chef is a dead ringer for Rodger Taylor (the drummer from Queen) as Rodger is now in fact I would say the chef and Rodger are about the same age - or maybe they are related.

The restaurant is beautifully decorated and there is only seating for 30 - 35 patrons. We actually walked up one evening so that we could book this place and we are so glad we did. We have had many meals in Albufeira but this has to be THE NUMBER ONE.

We will be back.

We ate here for my birthday, after reading other reviews and weren't disappointed! Peter and Ana were very attentive and Peter explained everything on the 5 course menu. The décor is beautiful and the welcome is homely. A lovely touch was the heart shaped cake, complete with candles, and a rose at the end of our meal! Can definitely recommend eating here when in Albufeira, and we will visit again on our next holiday!

We go to Dom Carlos every year & every year it just gets better , Peter & Anna are an absolute delite wonderful hosts & the food is 2nd to none, the hole experience is just great from the way every detail is explained on how the food is prepared & cooked to the wonderful home made breads, (just love the soda bread), This time we tried the Portugese spakling wine & was disapointed so we had two bottles between us. Great value, wonderful food, great company what more could you ask for , just wish i could go more often just love this place , well done Peter & Anna
