Whenever I'm stating in Brits, am trying to be there as it is located in the same area with the hotel. Very nice atmosphere, seafood and wines. Of course the meat is also good. Very friendly and professional staff at the restaurant is also one of the best things.

We last visited here years ago as we were charged for the doggie bag container. The food is pricey as is and we are not willing to be ripped off.

My wife and I arrived expecting hearty pub food. Instead, the bread for the table came cold and the waitress was less than helpful. The cocktails, however were good. My wife's chicken was tough and dry (flattened spring chicken) and my chicken was bland and overpowered by feta (chicken Rockefeller). When I cut into my chicken, white liquid filled my... More

Ended up at Caravel's on a Sunday afternoon after a grueling cycle race, hungry as wolves. Excellent service, wonderful menu with really a wide variety of Portuguese cuisine. Relatively limited wine list. Can go back there.

I don't normally post comments, but I obliged to say how dissatisfied I was with this restaurant. Six of us say down to a supposedly nice meal like previous experiences. The waiter ordered the starters and mains at the same time. Our mains eventually got brought to us way over an hour after ordering. The waiter forgot to order the... More

Late lunch, or very early super - stopped off here and what a great choice it turned out to be......great T-Bone special with great chips at only R 85, with partner also enjoying the grilled hake as well. Portuguese food lovers will not be disappointed and lots of specials add some truly great bargains and value too!
