Name of establishment
The Wolf Bar & Grill, Carvoeiro
Style and ambience
International ‘city centre’ style grill and steak house with the look and feel of the type of modern (but not self-consciously trendy) restaurant and bar that you might expect to find in northern Europe or the USA. Take your pick from dining in the main restaurant, a cocktail at the bar, or the Gourmet Burger Lounge on the roof terrace.
International steakhouse/grill favourites, with the occasional nod towards Portugal.
Starters include ribs, prawns, mussels, pata negra, stuffed mushrooms, secretos, chicken Caesar salad and smoked salmon salad.
Mains include Black Angus steaks (sirloin, rib eye, filet mignon and picanha), Argentina steaks (rib eye, filet mignon and chateaubriand), lobster, fish of the day, Brazilian prawn curry, New Zealand rack of lamb, vegetarian curry and vegetarian risotto.
Burgers include British, French, Indian and American.
Desserts include lime pie, carob & fig cake, and apple pie with ice cream.
All the meats are cooked on the Josper charcoal grill.
Dinner, lunch and children's menus are available.
Selection of over 50 Portuguese and international wines, plus classic beers, signature cocktails, spirits and soft drinks.
Why do you like it?
Good food at reasonable prices, attentive staff with personality, and a relaxing atmosphere with a broad appeal across the generations. The ‘in crowd’ won’t find it too old-fashioned, and families and more mature customers won’t feel it is too ‘hip’ for them.
What could be improved?
Yet again, that annoying issue of charging extra for sides, instead of including at least one potato/vegetable option in the price.
There is live music entertainment on Sunday lunchtimes.
78 Estrada do Farol, Carvoeiro. It’s located on the right-hand side towards the top of ‘restaurant hill’ as you drive east out of town in the direction of Benagil, etc. Some roadside parking.
