The Phoenix is awesome. We recently visited Alvor and went there 3 out of 7 nights - thats how good the food and the atmosphere is. The hostess is so welcoming and friendly and their Steak Pie is the BEST!!

Sometimes, especially with kids you just fancy a Sunday roast. And that's exactly what we did here yesterday. Brilliant food and service.
