Staying in the beautiful Fishermans village of Carvoeiro? I've been coming here since I was three years old and know exactly where to go out for drinks and local food.

Favoriet restaurants in Carvoeiro
Decadente, Carvoeiro

1. Drinks in Carvoeiro.


Cocktails, wine and snacks.

In de middle of Praia do Carvoeiro you find this amazingly cute little cafe called Decadente. The picturesque patio terrace is perfect for enjoying a good glass of wine and a cocktail with some sardines and olives. There is also a cute concept store that is perfect for buying presets.

O Bote.

Cocktails, wine and snacks.

If you enjoy watching the ocean whilst enjoying your sunset drink, O Bote is the perfect place to unwind from a beach day. It situated right on the the main beach of Carvoeiro and has a beautiful view of the ocean.

2. Lunch in Carvoeiro.

Earth cafe.

Lunch, coffee and cakes.

This cute little cafe has an amazing view overlooking a valley and the ocean. It's the perfect place for a nice coffee, homemade scones or Portuguese almond pie or avocado on toast. They have a variety of smoothies and have many vegetarian or vegan options.

O Stop.

Lunch and an afternoon beer.

O Stop is a cafe situated at a beautiful beach, Praia do Vale de Centeanes. They serve local seafood and I very much recommend their octopus salad. Order a vino verde with it and your life is complete. 😉 One of the best things about this cafe is that the outdoor terrace on beach in the sand and sheltered from the wind.

Bar Bacchus - Porches Pottery.

Porches pottery is a traditional Portuguese pottery about a 5-10 minute drive from Carvoeiro. Here you enter an oasis of Portuguese ceramics. Tiles, plates, wall decoration, tea pots and more is all to be found right here in this beautiful place. There is also a really cute little cafe, Bar Bacchus next to the pottery where they have the best carrot cake I've ever had in my life! Perfect to sit outside on a hot sunny day in the shade of the bougainvillea enjoying your coffee or late lunch with vino verde.

3. Dinner in Carvoeiro.

Casa Velha Do Pescador, Carvoeiro

Casa Velha Do Pescador.

Dinner and drinks.

With its amazing view, cute interior and lovely ambience this is one of my favorite restaurants. It's situated just outside of Carvoeiro near Praia do Benagil. The restaurant has a beautiful view over the Atlantic and praia do Benagil and serves great (sea) local food and wines.

Villa di Medici.

Dinner and drinks.

Ok. Going for Italian food on your holiday in Portugal might seem a little weird but this food is absolutely amazing! They have one of the best pizza's (the one with spinach) I have ever had! It's a great restaurant to go in low season when it's a little colder outside as they have a nice ambiance inside with many fire places. The service is excellent.
