About
Our restaurant dates since 1975! Many of our customers we already know by name. We look forward to welcoming you and your loved ones in our beautiful garden or by our fire place in the colder nights. For the new comers, we recomend our signature dishes like the rack of lamb, juicy stakes with home made sauces (pepper, bearnaise, mushroom) and fresh seafood. A visit to our restaurant usually closes with a flambe dessert and a good old Port. Servus, Your Por do Sol team

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a special place. From the moment you arrive at this fabulous spot you are made to feel so welcome and taken care of. Every dish is cooked to perfection. We both had a soup to start and then fillet steak for main. The fillet...steak was melt in the mouth, and my bearnaise sauce was so flavourful. I finished off with a deliciously rich chocolate mousse. We have returned time and time again, and the food and service is consistently wonderful every time. A must visit!More

We loved Por do Sol restaurant, it has a country house feel to it with the decor and the food and service is first class, the waiters are very friendly and welcoming and fantastic hosts. The Fillet steak is absolutely delicious, monkfish chunky and delicious,...smoked salmon melts in your mouth and flambe strawberries and creme brulee were a perfect finish. I highly recommend this fabulous restaurant. Can't wait to go back when I am next in Alvor.More

My birthday dinner with friends arranged at Pôr do Sol, a firm favourite of mine. Pre-booked for our party of four. Apperitifs served whilst making menu selection. Starters of melon with port and smoked salmon followed by seafood cream bisque soup, the best in Algarve...and not to be missed! Steaks and prawn omelette mains to follow. Chocolate cake to dessert and coffee to follow. Lovely white and red wine selection throughout. Very friendly, efficient and professional service throughout as has always been the case in the past. Reasonably priced for the food and service on offer. We will return again in the future for sure.More

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. We’ve been coming here for years. The staff are extremely accommodating and helpful. The food is superb. The menu is pleasingly familiar, high quality produce and perfectly cooked. These are the best steaks we’ve EVER eaten. When in...the Algarve we eat a lot of fish however, here we always have the steaks. Snr Candido and Snr Rui are the perfect hosts. Always ready with a joke and you can’t fault the service When was the last time you had a flambé? If you go, you simply must have one just for the spectacle. Tip: eat inside as the flambé trolley doesn’t venture outside.More

We were welcomed extremely friendly at the restaurant and seated at a nice table in the open area. Service was quick and very helpfull with questions to the menue. We ordered oysters and the house pate as a starter and the Chateaubriand for main. Except...that for the pate a little bit of Cumberland or else was missing, everything was fine and the meat perfectly done and of good quality. For desert we hat the Crepes Suzette, which was flambeed to perfection. The price including wine and water was 120 Euro, which is more than adequate for the quality and the perfect service. As we now live close to the restaurant, we are looking forward to many more nice special dinnersMore

Very unfriendly, made us wait for our table for a long time, even though there were many free tables. Only when we asked how long we'd have to wait did we get a table. We think this may have been because we changed our reservation...to half an hour later, which they said on the phone was fine. So disappointed, as we ate at Por do Sol very often 6 years ago, and had really looked forward to it. General customer service was very poor, not like we remembered at all. Unfortunately will not be going there again.More
