Visited a number of times as staying close by. Really consistent food and excellent service. Kids can have a half portion of anything on the menu there is no kids menu as such but mine really love the spaghetti bolognese here. Great desserts and really looking forward to a return visit.

This restaurant is very popular and having tried it for the first time - I can fully understand why. Slightly out from the centre of Alvor, easy parking, this restaurant offers delicious, freshly cooked, innovative food at a good price. Por do sol may be priced slightly above the mid range, but it is well above mid range in quality,... More

My husband and myself enjoyed a wonderful dinner in this lovely restaurant that offers a fine dining at its best at very resonable prices. We have booked this restaurant for a special dinner on our last night in this beautiful part of Portugal. The fish dinners were delicious, vegetables cooked to perfection and the desserts are not to be missed.... More

Went there with old friends who recommended the chateaubriand - no teeth required - delicious as was the cheesy potatoes, everything from starters to puddings were lovely. Staff are very efficient and polite making the dining experience unusually different these days. The kitchen is visible from the dining room and everything including the chefs are immaculate.

We make a point of coming here every time we come to Alvor. This time it was a family meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We nearly always go for the chateaubriand steak to share because it is so good and relatively good value. They cook it however you like it and if one likes rare and the other well... More

This venue provides an excellent menu. Your selection will be well prepared to you requirements and served by very attentive waiters. Fine dining ambience and well located with good parking facilities. One of our favourite Algarvian venues. You will not be disappointed with fine food at sensible prices.
