We visited the snack bar beneath the main resteraunt for toasted sandwiches most days for a lunchtime snack, really friendly staff/family, where else could 3 adults get lunch for less than €8?

Cracking meal...turned up on spec on very quiet Monday night in Carvoeiro, and we're pleasantly surprised with two of the cheapest things on the menu...fried hake fillets and piri piri chicken. House wine (tinto) was more than quaffable. Very nice.
