A visit to Carvoeiro is not complete without visiting this family run restaurant. Been some changes to the fabric of the restaurant but food still well cooked. The father still in kitchen but not helped by his wife this visit (got impression recovering from surgery). Son-in-law loves their piri-piri sauce and still providing a lot of heat! Good helping both... More

Cracking meal...turned up on spec on very quiet Monday night in Carvoeiro, and we're pleasantly surprised with two of the cheapest things on the menu...fried hake fillets and piri piri chicken. House wine (tinto) was more than quaffable. Very nice.

Visited A Fonte recently for lunch with my wife and our 3 children. We had the Fish Cataplana, the Seafood Rice and the Piri Piri chicken. We couldn't have been happier with the selection. We washed it down with a Liter of Sangria. Best meal we had in Carvoeiro.

Ate here just once, but enjoyed monkfish and rice to share. Massive portions, too much for us but lovely. Was our last night and wished we could return for sardines which looked super. Next year

I've walked past this place a few times and I'm aware that it's highly rated by some, seeing that they had sardines on the menu and that was what we were after we went in or should that be up? The place was much busier than I expected and while there was a table left outside we sat inside. It... More

We found this restaurant whilst wandering around town, made a reservation and were not dissapointed! Amongst the main dishes we had seafood rice which was amazing and an excellent chickenpiri piri which was with homemade sauce. Not to be missed. Great service and we were made very welcome. Will definetly return.

Would not return . I must say the front of house lady was very good and you could pay by card which was a... More

This restaurant has very little choice compared to other restaurants in the area, the prices don't match the quality of food, would not recommend it
