Excellent local, freshly cooked food with excellent, friendly service. Nothing too much trouble. Relaxed atmosphere with a warm welcome. We ate fish, chicken, pasta and steak which were all as good as each other and the portions were huge. The price doesn't match the meal, it's excellent value for money too. Not much more to be said really, but make... More

We visited twice for lunch last week and thoroughly enjoyed our meals both times. The staff are very friendly and attentive. We sat in the main restaurant the first time and in the outside patio area the second time.

We sat on the top floor. The views are spectacular across the Alvor river estuary. Fish soup is great as is the vegetable. Starters over we await sardines for two and peppered chicken breast for our birthday girl. Sardines are good, chicken well spiced and tasty. Probably have another beer or two to round off the fantastic meal. Thank you... More

Loved this place. Had drinks there most days, ate a few times. Tried fresh sardines for the first time and really enjoyed them once I remembered how to eat small fish. Had the best strawberry ice cream. The staff remembered that I needed an extra serviette after being asked only once. Service and food good every time.
