Those of you that have already visited Casa Jovic will likely have visited Pizzeria Donato’s. With great quality Italian food at very reasonable prices, and only 5 minutes walk from the villa, it's proved a popular haunt with Casa Jovic guests for quite a few years now.
Donato has now moved his restaurant slightly further away into the local town of Lagoa (now a 5 minute drive rather than walk) but thankfully has maintained the reasonable prices and great food.
In its place by the water tower close to the villa, local businessmen Joao and and his son have reopened the restaurant as Casa Joao's, which means that guests of Casa Jovic can now enjoy a second option of Italian food at very reasonable prices, plus more traditional Portuguese dishes including fish, meat, pasta, salad and of course pizza options on the menu.
Along with the new Casa Joao's, the village still has plenty of other options with Hexagone, Luisa's, Jophils, Rosa's, Oregano and michelin-starred BonBon all providing fantastic options and all within 5 - 10 minute’s-walk of the villa - after all, you can start the diet when you get home!

"We had many nice meals down in Carvoeiro, and particularly like 'Ela and Elas', 'Casa do Bife' and 'O Tascos'"
"Some of our favourite places to eat were L'Orange, Bon Bon (Sesmarias), Primavera (Carvoeiro) and Jophil's (Sesmarias)"
