Stunning location. Perfect romantic setting for our anniversary. Even had a recommendation from a local and could name drop the manager. Service started poorly, but did improve. Unfortunately not enough for the couple seated at the next table who left in disgust after being ignored...More

I love the location of this place but I just wish it catered more for your average holiday maker; there are no 'light options' it's all expensive and pretentious. Wanted a light lunch and strangely they just don't cater for that and to me it's...More

We visited by the end of the afternoon for drinks only. Got a seat in the shade and the Mojitos were served well prepared and cool. The place is nicely locaties but can get very hot.

This is a great place to go after the beach at Carvoeiro. It is near the end of the boardwalk. Try the white Sangria, it is amazing.

The restaurant is beautifully located, the views nearby are stunning. However, the restaurant itself leaves a lot to be desired, starting with the service. The waiter had a totally inappropriated behaviour, touching people at our table, spilling wine on somebody's phone, getting our soups after...More

Lovely meal, great service. Bit of a walk along the path and many steps but well worth it. We even went for a swim in the lagoon after woods and jumped off the rocks into the sea. Lovely place.

Walked down for a laid back drink while my parents kindly babysat. We loved it. Staff were great, the cocktails were lovely (mojito has a real kick :-)), atmosphere was exactly what we wanted. Only took a star away because we felt it was a...More

Boneca has a chilled Cafe del Mar vibe with friendly young staff running the place. We found the food fine, but a little expensive as it's more quick snack food than fine dining.

Friends recommended this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The setting is amazing and the food was great. I had prawns to start and they were amazing and the fish for main was beautifully cooked. Our waiter told us the chef was inspired that evening and...More

From memory I recall thinking €14 for sardines was a bit pricey but you pay for the unique setting. As we were leaving there was a delivery which is only via the steps down. It's not an easy descent for a lot of people but... More

Carvoeiro beach is the nearest beach from the Boneca Bar/Restaurant. It’s an easy 15 minute walk down along the Boardwalk to the Church and then down the steep road to the beach.

This is the start of the holiday season and every restaurant will be full. You may need to book one or even two days in advance for certain restaurant. My advice would be that you call on the restaurant and book rather than... More
