We come here because of the magnificent view over the Atlantic but got surprised with the good meal we have. For the kids we order a margarita pizza and a spider man. The pizza was so nice when it came... it was in a shape of a rabbit and the spider man has a smiley face with the lemon. For... More

Arrived for first seating, and wasn't offered an outdoor seat despite the fact we were the only ones there for a long while. The food was solidly good- but not enough to command the premium price. Service was very friendly. Pizza, the house special sole dish, and a calamari dish were tasty if otherwise unremarkable. The desserts were very disappointing,... More

We were recommended this restaurant through our hotel Monte Santo Resort. It was great food. The kebabs and grilled seafood selection as well as the fun attentive hosts, meant that it was not only a lovely meal but also a wonderful experience, which is what often makes a holiday memorable.

After trying plenty of restaurants around Southern Portugal, in search for perfect seafood, we finally found it :) Our kids had cod and seabass, which was really tasteful. We had the most expensive plate, with everything you could imagine from the sea, including lobster. Omg, this was crazy good!! To make things just better, the location and venue boosted the... More

Carvoeiro is a small won on the Algrave coast and restaurants are poor quality but the Tia Ilda is a wonderful exception. The fish starters were superb and the baked dishes of seabass and dorado were really good The staff were very good and made our visit a joy

Really wanted to sit and eat here and have that amazing view, we did and it was lovely, staff helpful and nice to the children, brought out blankets for the kids (we did go in April). The food was overpriced for what you get but I suppose you pay for the view too. Food not bad at all, just standard.... More

On a recent stay in Carvoeiro had lunch twice at this restaurant and enjoyed both meals. The view on the second floor is one of the best in the area. I had the BBQ chicken with piri-piri and fries. A signature dish in Portugal that gets little recognition but is delicious.On a beautiful sunny day this place is a hidden... More

Good location if yu make sure you are upstairs with the view. Serice and food good until after main course. Seems to then go downhill when waiters seem to disappear into clearing up. One of the better restaurants in town.

Great little restaurant overlooking Carvoeiro, happy friendly staff, good selection of meat fish pasta and pizza dishes, finished off with some lovely desserts. They did not do glasses of prosecco so had to order a bottle!!! Sat overlooking the ocean it was a perfect evening.
