Fun last evening in Carvoeiro. The staff are efficient, kind and fun. The location in right in the downtown. The food and wine was delicious. We were a large table of friends and the wait staff accommodated separate bills while easily splitting the cost of wine. Will definitely return next year.

We have walked past this place a lot observing that the place is always full. When we visited at 7.30 the place was full and we had to reserve a table for 8.30. When we returned, the place was still full. This tells a story... We ordered Sea Bass cooked in a sauce and the Baked Fish which had a... More

My family and I went for a meal last night, which was wonderful. We had the samosas, thai fish cakes and some bread to share, which were all delightful. Between us we then had the spare ribs, 2 chicken curries, the black pork and a salmon teryiaki. My family and I enjoyed everything thoroughly, and everyone had a clean plate.... More

We have been going to this restaurant for years but having returned this year, we wouldn't go back. There are restaurants serving better food and in a more relaxed atmosphere. Everything seemed rushed and frenetic,- not what we want in a dining experience. The food was ok overall with a few 'misses' especially the teriyaki salmon which was bland. The... More

Great food at a sensible price, A real variety of dishes to suit different tastes. we enjoyed the chicken curry. a table usually has to be booked in advance as it is very popular and is not that big.

Ate at Ele and Ella's excellent menu and friendly staff, bit noisy because there was a large group in. Lamb shank excellent as described on menu, but black pork not as expected as it came in a oriental sauce! Meal arrived far too quick and we did feel that they wanted the table for other customers. Very good value though.

Enjoyable meal in Ele & Ela. Spare rib starter was great, if anything the portion was a bit too big, but you can hardly complain about that! Service was good and friendly. The place was busy with a lively atmosphere. Booking ahead is recommended.
