Great restaurant with great view to the sea and wonderful fresh fish. The service is also great. Definitely a place to come to over and over.

We had a "all in" package price for food and drinks at a very reasonable rate. Food was great and service very friendly. After some time even drinks not part of the package (i.e. Schnapps) was included. Nice location as well.

If you are only in Alvor one night, this is the restaurant you need to eat at, make sure you book. The food, staff & atmosphere were fabulous, especially Christian who explains the choices of fish of the day. Great value.
