“First class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

We were staying close by so this was an obvious choice having read the reviews on TA. Can only agree with all reviews. First class in every way.

“A great night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Had dinner here last Friday night. My wife and I decided to go all out and went for the 7 course tasting menu and the wine pairings to accompany. The owner was pleasant and friendly, not overly chatty but very polite. We were given two amuse bouches which were lovely and very tasty pre-appetisers. asparagus course was fine, not very tasty but that's asparagus for you. the foie gras with the fig stick was fabulous, really delicious. scallops were melt in the mouth, we then had some fish course which was given to us by the owner as my wife asked about it as it was on the a la carte menu. the owner said it tasted like lobster...it didn't. in fact it was not tasty at all, very bland and disappointing, however the lamb main course made up for it. this was a cracking dish and ticked all the boxes and im not even a lamb eater. cheeseboard was good, and dessert was very nice. maybe im being harsh but I don't fully agree that the food is quite that of Michelin star standard, and in fairness they are not charging Michelin star prices. it is really delicious, don't get me wrong. but some courses needs a bit more refinement and consistency as some dishes are fab, others are so so. presentation was good but not special. also the breads are not nice, but if you ask me Portugal as a whole does not do good bread.
the wines were top notch. the owner really looked after us here. started with a nice fruity white, and then one that was a little more dry and crisp, great wines. im not a fan of sweet wines in general but the one we had with the cheeseboard was gorgeous. but the reds...the quinta do frances, from a vineyard literally up the road in the Algarve was best wine I tasted this whole holiday by a mile and he left us the bottle which we gladly polished off. then we were brought another red, though at this stage, I couldn't tell red from white as we were well oiled with them pouring the wine all night like it was the wedding feast of Cana. Great night out, lovely atmosphere, not too stiff at all, great food and wine (by the bucketload), happy customer. if I do ever return to carvoeiro (unlikely), I will definitely return to Bon Bon

“Not the usual portuguese”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

It's a nice place, for the special occasions while you're in Algarve. In general in Portugal you can have very good food for quite cheap prices. In this case you have fine food (like in a Michelin star restaurant) and the price is still reasonable.
The service is very good. The owner is around helping and checking that everything is OK.
Very nice experience.
