Used this restaurant last year and was not a great experience. Recent reviews were very positive so we gave it another go. Totally different this year with good food and friendly efficient service.

The food was a very good quality but not fantastic hence the good rating. The service began really well, with good explanations of the dishes and a good pace between the first two courses. After this there was a big delay removing plates and then returning to ask about dessert. A good experience overall but the service prevented us ordering more drinks or coffees.

This is our second visit A Vela, our party of 6 couldn't find fault with any aspect. We received a warm welcome, excellent service and food that was a taste sensation. I had the lamb kebab special which I can highly recommend, cooked to perfection with lovely flavours.
Excellent wine and value for money too.

Run by a great team of people; friendly and efficient. Wish we’d found it earlier in the holiday as I’m sure we’d have gone back.

Octopus really nice, but staff seemed stressed and card machine was not working and I was sent by staffto nearby cash machine. My wife have creamy salmon pasta, but was too much cream and very rich. Also kids meal nuggets just deep fried frozen, and quite unexciting.

First night in carvoeiro, booked online after seeing the reviews and was not disappointed.
Service good waitress attentive and drinks and food order taken swiftly. The food was lovely I can highly recommend the duck and the salmon pasta both were delicious, unfortunately had no room for dessert. Enjoyed and will recommend to our friends.

Good atmosphere, small team which can cause some longer waiting time.

Food itself was great and is definitely worth coming back for!

Owner speaks 7 languages so there is always a way to communicate.
