Popped in on THursday to book and let them know one of us did not eat meat. Saturday night in the restaurant was relatively quiet which was all the better for us as we got great service from the owners and they let us try a small portion of the dish we didn't choose! Everything was fabulous, including the excellent... More

The restaurant located in a cosy place - close to the beach, entertaining (by the owners) and calm eve. Delicious meal consisting of 5 courses for each person. If you feel like having a quality food and a special evening - this is a place.

No Restaurant in Albufeira can hold a candle to this Restaurant! What a gem! Michelin star food ! Anyone with taste and a refined palate must come here. Not the typical Albufeira English crap! Excellent cuisine!

My wife and I have eaten here twice and really like it. Food is excellent as stated in most of the reviews. Peter and Anna are brilliant hosts and customer service is excellent. Peter explains all the courses and will gladly offer some items not on the menu if available. Take his advice and arrive hungry! On our second visit... More

Just had to try this restaurant after reading the reviews. So glad we did! The prawn starter was just amazing as was the calamari. The fish cataplana we shared as a main course was excellent and a very generous portion. The husband at front of house was so helpful in explaining the dishes and his wife's cooking so simply magnificent!... More

We visit Albufeira at least twice a year but have never until this time visited Dom Carlos. This is by far the best restaurant in Old Albufeira. The hosts are welcoming, attentive and graceful. The food served is astounding with a superb selection of wines. We arrived at 7pm, ate a truly wonderful five course meal served with amazing homemade... More

I am not going to waste my time telling you how good this place is. Just go and see for yourself. Every thing we ate and drank was nothing short of superb and the service and bonhomie was even better. If you go to Alubufeira and don't eat here you have wasted your plane ticket.
