This isn't a typical Portuguese restaurant and the dishes probably veer slightly towards traditional french cuisine, but the food and service are consistently of a very high standard. There is no need to don suits or similar, but this is certainly a bit more formal than most restaurants in Carvoeiro, and I would view it as an adult restaurant and... More

The foood was not your typical Portuguese fare. There was very much a French influence in the cooking. We both had the special of the day ,which was a rabbit stew in a nice sauce ,served with dauphinois style potatoes and vegetables. Delicious. We also both had starters of a shrimp cocktail which was very good. They also gave us... More

Visited the Orange twice last week and it gets better and better. Service was excellent. We had the sea bass and chicken - was really excellent.

Having read some of the reviews we decided to give l'orange a go last night, the restaurant was nice and busy and we received a warm welcome from the staff. The prices are a little high - but we decided to treat ourselves to a fillet steak, beef entrecôte and a bottle of red wine from the specials list. I... More

We visited twice during our recent holiday as we were staying in a villa nearby. The fact that we went back says it all! The owner was very accommodating, making sure you had a table that was out of the sun. The waiting staff were all very friendly and helpful. We all had different dishes on each occasion and no...

Visited here on the last night of our holiday, and what a way to finish it! Everything tasted amazing from the covers through to desserts. The service also, was extremely friendly, calm and welcoming. There were five in our party and everyone agreed it was the best meal of our holiday, and we all had different things on each course....

I had the goats cheese and ham as a starter which was absolutely delicious followed by chicken breast in curry sauce the others had the same and two of us had the lamb... More

My family ate here twice whilst on holiday in Carvoeiro, myself , husband and 2 children age 7 & 10. The food is out of this world! The fillet steak was cooked to perfection and perfectly complimented by the sautéed potatoes, dauphinois potatoes and salad. The children also enjoyed 'mini ' steaks which again were to die for! The service... More

Came here for our anniversary as a couple, and did not disappoint. Food tasted great and was nicely prepared (we had scallops with black pudding, monkfish, and almond cheese cake for dessert). Service was very efficient and friendly, and the cook even came and said hello. Fairly pricey (~€55 per person for 3 courses + wine etc.), but probably about... More

Having enjoyed numerous dinners over the past 10 years at L'orange, I made a telephone booking from the UK speaking to the owner Jan last week. It was obvious from the conversation that he knew exactly who was calling and the booking was duly accepted. On arrival at the restaurant it became apparent the booking had not been logged. Jan...
