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.

We walked past many times but decided to try it on the next to last day of our holiday. The food and service was brilliant along with the prices. We had the scrimp and rice and the Portuguese steak, which according to my wife was...the best food of the two weeks. The service was exceptional making the evening very special. Should have come here sooner but definitely on our next visit. A big thanks to dad and son.More

Food was excellent and depending on what you order, prices very reasonable. Concentrate on chef’s specialities like black pork and rabbit - both very delicious. Owner was patient and helpful and never in a rush which meant you could relax and enjoy the meal at...leisure. The expresso was smooth and lovely. Will be returning at least once more to try the seafood before leaving Alvor.More

We visited this restaurant twice whilst we stayed in Alvor. We asked for dressed crab when we booked and were told they would do their best to get it for us. We were pleasantly surprised when the showed us to our table they were able...to get it. The service is excellent and everyone is made to feel special. You are not rushed to order and have time before each course. They all work extremely hard. The food is tasty and good quality. Nothing is to much trouble. We will always visit when going back to Alvor.More

Very busy and very lucky to get a table. You may need to book but actually that gets you the table but doesn’t mean you will be served any quicker the same as any where. Wonderfully cooked fresh food and a lovely atmosphere. Good value,...we would have returned but they were too busy when we tried again.More

A family meal at Capcho, we hadn't booked but were still met warmly and shown to a table through at the back of the restaurant. The hosts were friendly and chatted about the fresh fish options. I'd have to say they were also very good...with our 5 year old. I had the prawn cocktail to start, which may seem old fashioned but was very good. The three fish dishes our party ordered for mains were all excellent. I especially liked the Grouper. First time I've eaten here, although I've visited the area many times. I would happily go back, as the food and service was excellent. Although, I would say that its a little old fashioned (throw away plastic bibs are OK for eating messy ribs, but not for every diner) with a more formal air than some other restaurants. Visit here if you want a slightly more formal experience with excellent fresh fish.More
