Let there be no doubts, this was our only standout food experience during a one week stint on the Algarve. Due to our kids preferences we may have missed some gastronomic spots in Luz, this made up for it. Food was tasty and exquisitely presented. Our kids taste buds seemed content.

We stay at Carvoeiro once or twice a year, but since stumbling across A Fabrica a couple of years ago we always make the 45 minute drive over to Praia de Luz to eat at A Fabrica. The food at A Fabrica is fairly simple, it is extremely tasty, and it is fantastic value, indeed I'm already looking forward to... More
