High on a hill with a spectacular sunset view, this lively restaurant has French, Italian, Spanish, and Brazilian dishes. Sit in the Olinda Room with its wall of windows. Try the porco reacheado (pork tenderloin stuffed with spinach and feta cheese) or the moqueca mineira (shrimp, clams, and whitefish in a Brazilian sauce). Brazilian radio often accompanies the meal. If you love chicken, try the sautéed version with pineapple and papaya. Carlos is also open for lunch on weekdays.

The restaurant started on market square and moved to the burbs and opened on top of a hill off route 419. I liked the "pollo magnifico" a slightly spiced up Brazilian chicken dish which was just ok as well as the service. This place is worth a visit if you in the southern end of Roanoke.
