We ate here a couple of times during our 2 week holiday. Service was a little slow on the first occasion as the waitress told us they were busy but we never really noticed as we were given some bread (delicious,warm, with lovely dips mmmm) and then an amuse Bouche. Tapas were wonderful - especially the carpaccio & clams. Portion sizes were quite large. Staff are very good & the place has a nice atmosphere. It's just a shame it doesn't have a nicer view - it's in the middle of a street opposite it an inflatable shop but don't let this stop you going!

We had a terrible experience here. We had one nice waitress and one horrible one who obviously wished she was anywhere else but working. Got drinks and one appetizer. Then waited over an hour. No one came to our table at all. We were totally ignored. Not sure if this was because we were tourists. Our food never came. We had to hunt the waitress down who said she would check on our food. She never returned to our table. I get up again about 15 minutes later and walk around the restaurant to find the waitress.She said they were busy and would bring our appetizer soon and then start on our main courses. We had already been there over an hour and a half. They didn't seem to think this was anything out of the ordinary. By this time our meal was ruined by waiting so long and we were hungry. We only got an apology when we told the waitress we couldn't wait any longer and had to leave. This is the worst dining experience I have had in a long time including many trips to Europe. I would definitely avoid this restaurant. There are plenty of other places in town to eat.

Words can't describe! By far and away the tastiest Tapas I have ever had. Good staff, lovely location, good value and super food. It was our friends first ever Tapas experience and they loved it and will be going again based on this experience. You have to try the Leek and Potato balls if you go. Taste sensation!!

Fantastic food for parents and kids - you will need to book in advance though and service can be a little slow as it is very busy but well worth the wait !

The fact that this place is very busy even though a little way off the main drag (on the way out of town along rua dos pescadores, the "up" street in Carvoeiro) tells you all you need to know. It closes on Tuesdays. Great menu including tapas options. Dates stuffed with goat cheese wrapped in bacon and doused in honey was the one menu item that drew us in, and we weren't disappointed. The only problem here is too much delicious choice! Great food, chef and servers all obviously care a lot about what they're doing.
