“Best monkfish rice you'll ever eat”

Alphonso's Restaurante
Ranked #40 of 420 Restaurants in Quarteira
Certificate of Excellence

Not the monkfish rice you're expecting to get. Once the pan's cover gets open, you're overwhelmed with a blast of arabic scents, mostly turmeric. The first fork tastes odd and strange, after a few more you find yourself unable to stop eating :) Just let yourself (and that Alvarinho's bottle next to you) go...
The monkfish is as fresh as it gets.

Nice place with a simple but good decoration.

The food is very good and fair portions.

The staff is friendly and always try to help.

Its not over priced for the quality.

They need to improve the waiting time, we waited for more than 40m and we didn't order nothing very complex (salad and grilled chicken).

We walked along the promenade from Vilamoura to Quarteria last night. Using google maps and tripadvisor we found Alphonso's. We were greeted by friendly, helpful staff who asked if we had booked. We hadn't but they found us a table. The service was excellent. There was a friendly lady (the manager maybe?) and some very pleasant young waiters. The menu is very reasonably priced for food and drinks. There were 3 of us. We had drinks, delicious fresh fish and two desserts for 57 euros. The cod in garlic and John Dory dishes were amazing! There was a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. Most of the customers were Portuguese. I would love to go to Alphonso's again in the near future and try something different.

We just left Alphonso and enjoyed every bit of our meal. My entrecote was grilled perfect, the Portugese steak was exellent! The service was fast and super friendly! We are coming back tomorrow.
