Met a couple while we were out there who recommended it to us & we weren't disappointed. Small & friendly with great food, we went back the following evening as it was that good.

A great little restaurant run by an eccentric Dutchman called Libbe . A really warm welcome and a great meal.

Had a lovely meal and experience recently. Staff are welcoming and friendly and the size of the fish lived up to its name..... I was told to order "Whale and Chips" and was not disappointed. Thank you so very much!

We had exclusive use of this restaurant with a group of friends. the staff were excellent - great sense of humour. the food was good - but not the best that we had in Carvoeiro. Our choice of wine was not good - the port was much better!

Libbe was as entertaining as ever. Sat next to a lovely Canadian couple who were brilliant company. And the food..... as good as ever. Fish chips and mushy peas to die for and hubby's peri peri chicken kebab he said was juicy and tasty. Spot on

Happy's is obviously an institution in Carvoeiro and never fails to provide a good night out. The atmosphere is always one of the friendliest in town and the food is excellent value too. Don't miss it!
