Name of restaurant
Ele & Ela, Carvoeiro
Mediterranean-Oriental fusion dishes served in a tasteful and modern restaurant in the centre of Carvoerio.
The restaurant has a selection of dishes that will appeal to all palettes, and is a great spot for a quality family meal with good food at affordable prices.
The dark walls and large gilded mirror give an opulent feel to this small restaurant, which also has oriental touches throughout.
Popular all through the year with residents and visitors, Ele & Ela has become one of the busiest places in Carvoeiro, with a mixture of diners from couples to families and groups of golfers.
What to eat?
Chef Harald focuses on sourcing the freshest products, and his menu changes at least three times a year in accordance to the seasons.
Some things are firm favourites though - including the Thai fish cookies which are popular with diners of all ages and nationalities.
The menu is relatively small, and whilst most of the dishes have an oriental twist, they work well with the Mediterranean ingredients. If you really want something plain then a simple grilled steak can be served up instead, although it would be a shame to miss out on some of the more inventive dishes including the Moroccan spiced lamb.
What to drink?
The wine list features many Portuguese wines from different regions, and has been designed to be easy to read and understand for those who are not familiar with the wines of Portugal.
Most of the wines are priced between €12.95 and €31, with an additional few choices costing around €70 a bottle for special occasions.
Why do you like it?
The cost in comparison to the quality is amazing. Harald works to keep dishes at accessible prices, and shops around for local products in season.
Ask about the daily specials - delicious and inventive food that does not usually appear on the menu.
The restaurant has built up a great reputation, but this means that during the summer month it can be difficult to get a table. Booking at least one day in advance is recommended.
