The grilled fish we had today was one of the best, if not the best, we have ever eaten. Plus friendly staff, quick service and reasonable prices. We would definitely recommend.

When you have several restaurants in a row, you just don't know whitch one you shall choose. I'm glad i got the hint to try out Caravela! It is a nice and cozy restaurant in the middle of a few others, with sea sight and stunning sunsets if you're there at the right time! About the meals i do not have to say much other then i wish i could have eaten it all up! It was super delicious and the fish actually is fresh from a nearby vilage. Also the meat is unforgettable good. Salad and vegies are fresh not out of cans or freezer. Im defenetly coming back!!

We ate out every night and most afternoons on our holiday and it is Caravela that we rate the highest. Best sea food, good prices, easy going staff, and always busy with locals. We took advice from the waiter on what fish to have each time we went (4 times!) and we could not have chosen better. Delicious!

After noting comments about large portions, we just ordered 1 portion of tuna between the 2 of us. I reckon there was enough for 3 people!
As is often the case with large meals, the emphasis was on quantity not quality. Texture was forgotten. Boiled rice, boiled potatoes, and boiled vegetables along with tuna made for dull eating. In addition, there was no sauce to brighten the meal.

On a positive side, everything, including the toilets was very clean. Service was prompt and friendly, and when they realised we wanted to share the meal, they were very helpful.
But we won't go back. I hate to see food wasted, in a world where many are starving, but we couldn't eat all of this meal.
