The best thing this place has going for it is the location on the banks of the harbor. Wonderful view. The restaurant has a nice shady terrace with a cool breeze in summer but I imagine it could be quite chilly at other times. They had many fresh fish on offer. We had dourado and stonebass. The stonebass was a... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our tasty fish in light batter, crunchy salad and hot chips. A simple lunch at a reasonable price. We sat outside and the closeness to the water with the views beyond,made this special. The restaurant was not too busy but there were enough fellow diners to create a holiday feel. Friendly helpful waiter.

We have been coming to Alvor for many years but have never eaten in this restaurant before. So glad we tried it. Food is very good & the restaurant itself is very nice. Staff are very friendly & prices are reasonable. The reason I have deducted 1 star is for the music....if you are a lover of jazz, this is... More

Unlike my wife, I'm not into seafood - I hate messing with the bones....! My wife had fish on a skewer (kebab) and raved about it. I persuaded myself to try a fillet and was pleasantly surprised how I reasonably enjoyed it. What I did enjoy was the live New Orleans Jazz band who were superb, playing for over two... More

Went on a Sunday for the New Orleans Jazz night - excellent entertainment. But the food was very disappointing. Poor quality food not particularly well cooked. In fact suffered a stomach upset after. Staff were good though. Would not go back for the food though.

Had a very nice dinner out with friends. Very nice people and great service. The fish is really fresh and delicious. Look forward to eating outside when we come back in the better weather.

We have been here many times and the location is fabulous, next to the fishermans hut and one of the few restaurants open in January in Alvor. The food is simple but fantastically tasty, we had sea bass between us and it was so fresh. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and we would not hesitate to return.

Thank suefromstoke

Our restaurant opened in September 2011. We offer the tastes of the Algarve, fish, seafood and meat. Entertainment is usual each evening in the summer, and on selected nights during the winter and early spring. We have a wonderful view of the harbour whether you dine upstairs or downstairs. Visit us for a leisurely drink. If you would like a function we can seat more then 200 guests. Find more information on our web-site.
