Hadn't eaten here for a year or so and was really looking forward to it. The maître d/manager (Nuno, I think?) showed and described the fish and seafood available. We were impressed by the size of the tiger prawns. My colleague went for the medium tiger prawns (3 per serving) and I opted for the large tiger prawn which was... More

We visit Alvor twice a year. This restaurant is by far the best in the village and that says something because there are a lot of very good ones. The red snapper is my favourite though there are lots of fish to choose from. There is also plenty of meat for those unfortunate enough not to like fish, service first... More

Sitting outside this restaurant eating the best of fish, freshly cooked was a delight. Prices were reasonable and the waiter spoke excellent English so understood exactly what we wanted. Our meal was served with small new potatoes and a very good tomato salad. We shall return. Loo facilities could be better.

This is by far the best restaurant we ate at during our holiday here in Alvor. Service was excellent. We went with the recommendations of the waiter and I can say the seafood was truly excellent. So Fresh and of superb quality. Not to be missed.

We are midlanders and not familiar with atlantic fishes. The main waiter has a great experience with such tourists and showed many fresh fishes on a big tray. The chosen fish went on grill. It was very good choice, with agood local white wine, excellent service and a moderate price.

Nestled on the edge of the bar area, we enjoyed a superb meal. Restaurant has an excellent choice of seafood with a good range of meat. Service was excellent and venue was very clean. Parking not good which is only negative. Would go again despite being 30 mins from our location.

Stunning food! Pretty much everything was extremely tasty. We had silver and gold breams, as well as prawns and tiger prawns for starter. Tuna pate is a must as well! Great service, very attentive staff!
