I planned this particular trip to Portugal so that I could take my boyfriend to Dom Carlos, yes it's that good. I've been going with friends for years and it never disappoints, in fact it gets better and better! The hosts Peter and Ana are wonderful and the food is out of this world. As always it was a dining... More

We wanted to experience this place in the Old Town as it was No 1 on Trip Adviser. It is quite quirky in appearance both inside and outside. The hosts, Peter and Ana talk you through the menu as it is 5 courses and you can swap from Menu A to B. It is a lot of food to eat... More

We were quite insecure whether we would ever get a table here so last minute, but fortunately it was not the busiest tourist season yet. On June it was still possible to get a reservation for four in a very short notice. We were travelling with couple of friends and looking for a place very special; none of the touristic... More

The reviews are absolutely spot on, the standard of food was first rate. The owners look after your every need even down to when commenting on the amazing dessert, asking if I'd like another piece wow! This place is a must visit when visiting Albufiera.

It is one of the most romantic restaurant in Albufeira, it doesn't have the views but the couple that runs it is amazing they make you feel like you always know then and you are part of there close friends, food is divine and the best quality.

Dom Carlos is a family run business where attention to detail is evident from the moment you enter the restaurant. The food is delicious, plentiful and outstanding in quality - you will not leave hungry!! I highly recommend a visit.

We visited this restaurant on Thursday 27 October after reading such good reviews on TA. We were not disappointed. The whole experience was wonderful, Ana and Peter are brilliant hosts. They described the menu and even where the food was sourced. They are both very passionate about their food. There is no rush either - the table is yours for... More

Cozy restaurant, fresh food and a real passion to deliver a great gastronomic experience. Two combinable menus of 5 plates each. The price is €50 per cover (drinks not included). Even the less expensive red wine was really good. Children +12.
