Has anyone been to Carvoeiro in Portugal and can recommend things to do/see and places to eat?
Thank you 🤍

There is a Mumsnetter who lives there. Not sure if she is still around, she's very helpful
(Not sure if that will work- you could try and PM her)

Hi. Yes I live in Carvoeiro, what would you like to know?

We stayed at quinta do paraiso in Carvoeiro 5 years ago and have our fingers crossed that we will get there again next Sunday! Costacoffee was a mine of information! There are loads of great restaurants, but I'm not sure how the current restrictions and curfew are affecting them. Its a very scenic town and the beach is lovely. I'm afraid we didn't venture very far last time, but we are going to visit Lagos this time, which is meant to be lovely.

I'm so sorry for the late reply!
Thank you so much for replying.
We would just like some hidden gem restaurants or a fab Indian, Italian and Chinese.
Is there anything we should do or shouldn't do?
We've heard so many great things about Carvoerio 🤍

Go to Chef's Kitchen to eat. Best meal I had on holiday in years!

@loopsngeorge Lagos is my favourite town in the world. Been going there on and off over 30 years, it's my ambition to retire there (yeah thanks Brexit, that one's off the table now).
I hope you enjoy!

Unfortunately we don’t have any Chinese restaurants open at the moment
For Indian I would say Pashmina, near Rocha Brava, or O Indiano in the village
For Italian, Bella Vita on Clube Atlantico is a definite, but also for just pizza, Mirage, in the village
Do go on the cave boat trips if you’re ok with small boats
Do try an ice cream at Gelados e Companhia
I haven’t tried it yet, but the Tapas restaurant to the left of the beach is supposed to be good
For traditional Portuguese go to A Fonte, just up some steps on the right before the chemist
A Vela is also good
Do take a trip to Silves if you’ve got a car
Jan’s in the square do good Indonesian food
Taste, at the end of the out road, have different things going on eg Mexican night, tapas rodízio where they just keep bringing various tapas dishes for 15€ a head (usually a Friday night) Saturday steak night and sometimes brunch on Sunday, also traditional Sunday roast
Centeanes is a bigger beach near Rocha Brava with a nice restaurant/beach bar cut into the cliff above the beach
The Carvoeiro Plaza and Tivoli hotels both have rooftop bars
Where are you staying?

Thank you @Costacoffeeplease for your tips as we are going to Carvoeiro next week. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good car hire company at Faro airport please?

I've been there on holiday but we self catered in a villa but it was absolutely amazing
Costacoffeeplease · 30/07/2021 22:31
I think a lot of people use Zit Autos but I would ask on one of the cvo fb pages as we don’t hire cars ourselves

Cocktails on the Tivoli rooftop bar.
We also did a paddle boarding tour at a beach close by. Got picked up from our villa and they took us there. I highly recommend that!
