    Was charged $48 for a bottle of Winking Owl (Aldi brand of wine $3.00 a bottle). This was not the wine I ordered and was told they didn’t have the one I ordered and brought this instead. However on the receipt they charged me for the one they didn’t have and told me it was the same price. Hate to be taken advantage like this. Will definitely not be back

    My wife and I are big fans of Portugal food. In our opinion Caravela is the best Portuguese Restaurant in South Florida. The food selection is amazing. Everything is pretty tasteful and fresh. If you like Cod (Bacalhau) this is the place to go. They have more than six different dishes with Cod. Caravela have a good selection of Wines - Albarinhos with very good price. Don't leave without trying the desserts. The star is the Pateis de Nata, a well known Portuguese dessert. Also, the customer service is outstanding. Fully Recommended!

    Went to Caravela to celebrate Father’s Day. The staff was very attentive with service. We never had to wait around to order new items, and dishes were taken away after we were finished with them to make us feel more comfortable. Ordered a bottle of a Portuguese green/white blend. The seafood rice and tres leches were delicious. Overall a very pleasant experience.

    We ordered the seafood paella which was very tasty and fresh! We also had the grilled sardines which were meaty and good. The service was good even though it was Mother’s Day and the waiters were busy with large parties. I will definitely go back to have that paella!

    I'd been looking forward to visiting this Doral eaterie for some time. I must admit my unfamiliarity with Portuguese cuisine, which as it happens, if Caravela is a good barometer, is a bit bland. Nevertheless, the presentation was appealing and the quality was good. The service was attentive and efficient. Would I return? Probably not. For me Caravela was a "one and done" experience, but that doesn't mean others may see it differently.

    The food was wonderful. The cod dishes were all fresh and cooked in traditional Portuguese fashion. The codfish croquettes were a delight. The chorizo asado served flamed table side was not only a feast for the eyes but for the palet. The Bacalau con natas was amazing. Our server, Michele Acevedo was superb! Impeccable service with extensive knowledge of the menu but also his recommendations were all on point. I dare say I would try anything Michele recommends. I would even go so far as to have him just order for you! The homemade Sangria is a must try to truly capture the whole dining experience of Portugal. Location is quiet and off the beaten path but parking is free! Must try!! Tell Michele Hi from Jupiter!!

    We arrived early evening on Valentines Day and were greeted by the owner who immediately sat us near the front door. We were then greater by our waiter who gave us the menu. We ordered the seafood Paije which was plenty for two ($58.99). We then ordered the green Portugese wine. Service was fair, food was fair.

    Great food and service. They just need to handle big group gatherings better so that other guests at the restaurant are negatively affected by excessive noise and getting blocked going into and out of bathrooms. Other than, it’s an excellent place with high quality food.

    I made a reservation since my friends were in town and at the time of the reservation they told me that they had a mistake where they haven’t change the time on OpenTable. So I had to take my friends somewhere else. I passed by the restaurant around 10:45 pm and a lot of people where still inside and our reservation was supposed to be at 9:30z I recommend to call since they don’t go by the reservations through OpenTable.
