I had "espadarte fumado" beautiful followed by the "pernil no forno" wow this is a massive plate full. The waiters... More

Had a dinner for 3. Ordered as a starter clams - amêijoas a bulhão pato, then grilled cod - bacalhau à lagareiro, chicken with blood - cabidela and file with mushroom sauce. Everything was cooked to perfection! Delicious Portuguese classical dishes. A bill including a decent bottle of wine was 65€ for 3.

We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant, we first came here 3 years ago and thought the restaurant was excellent, it still is. You are made really welcome by the father and son that run it. Great service, great food and great atmosphere, it’s a must visit when in Alvor. Highly recommended.

What a surprise. Walked past it more time than I care to remember without any desire to give it a try. Outside is far from enticing ! Turns out the lovely folk who have run it since 2001 have about as much custom as they can service with their tight little family squad...so they like it the way it is... More
