My son and I enjoyed our visit to this terrific bar on our recent trip to Alvor-cold beer served by Auria, charming and efficient, and an excellent singer/guitarist Paulo?, provided a relaxing evening. Food looked great also! Definitely a fun spot!

We didn't eat here but it became our default stop-off after a day on the beach for one (sorry, make that several) cold beers (1 Euro) and gin and tonics. Ideally located in the Dunas complex.

They did not have draught guiness but they do have cans of some drinks so possibly in a can. The black stove is your best bet for draught guiness as it is a full on Irish bar. Cactos is still a really good night tho.
