Probably one of the best places you will eat in your life. One of life's hidden treasures. You will not be disappointed. Even my fussy children couldn't get enough of this food. Can't wait to go back.

We have been going to A Carpa for a good 15 years about 3 times a year. Perfect for families, couples, everyone. We've eaten basically everything from the menu and can't fault it. Staff are incredible. No hesitations here whatsoever.

This restaurant never lets us down. It's not a fancy place or a big menu but full of dishes everyone would enjoy. The food as usual was perfect and staff very friendly.
