Now and again I find a restaurant which ticks all the boxes for me, and this is one of them! I love simple fresh food, cooked by people who enjoy what they are doing and who want you to enjoy your time in their establishment. The family running this place for the last 54 years are warm, friendly and welcoming, cook fresh fish as good as you will taste anywhere , and you have views across a lovely bay.
Access is difficult for the less mobile, but I noticed a few diners who were determined to enjoy this beach café/restaurant despite their mobility issues. ( Good on them!)

We considered the prices to be similar to other local establishments, and cheaper than some, so I don't recognise the cost issues raised elsewhere. We enjoyed fresh fish and all the trimmings for less than the 15 euros allegedly charged for bread! When I return to Carvoeiro, this restaurant is at the top of my list to re-visit.

Cataplana was not as usual and the squid was frozen. When we told the waiters they didn't even reply. We were charged 15 euros for bread! Would not recommend to anyone at all

We ate in this restaurant a few times for both lunch and dinner over our week stay in the area.
The restaurant is in a fantastic location with views over the beach and sea and the only restaurant on that specific beach.
You can eat in the restaurant or an outside terrace.
Lunch time there is the option of the main menu or plenty of options of lighter snacks such as baguettes, burgers etc. All well priced and speedy service.
In the evening the menu is plentiful with lovely fish and meat dishes. Portions were very good sizes and very well presented. There are minimal descriptions of the food, and often it was a pleasant surprise as to what you would be served. Prices ranged from €10 - €15 per main course.. Well worth it for the food and the setting.
Service was great with friendly and helpful staff.
A family run restaurant where home cooked food and service is key.
The homemade desserts were delightful. Would absolutely recommend.

We have been coming to O Stop for 12 years - the same family run the restaurant and look after the beach and all the facilities. The service is excellent and you can't beat the fish soup, fresh fish and shellfish as well as the burgers and steaks. For a beach cafe/restaurant it is excellent and you can't find a better view of the sea, beautiful beach and cliffs that make Centeannes so special.

The food was good, not fantastic but nice. The restaurant looks a bit more like a beach bar and could be a bit fancier with a nice location like that. I wouldn't recommend the fish with banana but think that was just a poor menu choice as the fish was well cooked.
Personally for both view and fresh fish food I would recommend Boneca over this.
