First impressions very good. Waiting staff extremely nice. Food was terrible though. One of us had Piri Piri chicken ...it was chicken which had been cooked, possibly frozen and then reheated with a lot of garlic butter thrown on, Terrible. My other half had serloin steak with mushroom sauce ... Which consisted if one mushroom in a beef stock gravy.... More

This was our 3rd visit to Alvor and our 4th visit to this restaurant. We were seated quickly when we arrived for our evening meal. My wife chose Salmon & I chose mixed meat & we asked to change chips to potatoes which proved an inspired decision as the baby new potatoes were lush. We both had garlic bread starter... More

We visited this restaurant on our first visit to Alvor 5 years ago and loved it then. The Sole with Almonds and Banana was our favourite then and was the first thing we ordered on our recent trip (September 2016). We ate there twice in one week as it was so good! The other meals we saw looked equally delicious... More

My wife and I dined here last night for the first time. This is a very nice restaurant and my swordfish meal was very good however my wife's meal was awful. She had chicken breast with piri piri sauce on the side. On tasting her first piece having dipped it in the sauce she almost turned a shade of green.... More

The food was lovely and the service was very welcoming, you can see how hard the waiters and staff work. The menu had reasonable affordable offerings, suitable for all the family. It was relaxing and we had 2 babies and my mum in a wheelchair. No problem.

Both our meals were terrible, never seen such odd colours before in our meals. tomato sauce in pasta was brown, mussels were terrible. Restaurant itself was nice, and our waiter was very good as well. However, the food lets this place down . One to avoid

Both my wife and I ordered a starter to share ( garlic and tomato baked bread) which came very quickly and was nicely presented. We also ordered, the pork loin from the specials board. Although nicely presented again, the food was at best luke warm. The potatoes and port sauce was tasteless. We complained at the time, only to be... More
