Been here before. Very pleasant surroundings with wholesome roast lunch. The three course option included a limited range of starters but the melon was excellent. The desserts were even more limited to ice cream or melon but the ice cream was very pleasant. Service was ok but a smile would not have gone amiss.

Not our first time here, but returned to a warm welcome from staff who are so attentive. Ordered a traditional roast which was to perfection. Unfortunately we had enjoyed a very filling starter which made the task of clearing the main course plate a little difficult but we managed it. You will not be disappointed.

We went twice and enjoyed the food immensely the only downfall was the puddings.. I was let down. I think the selections are too big and was hoping they would be home cooked. However the Sunday dinner was lovely and left full to the top. The wine was a large portion ( no complaint) reading other people's reviews on how... More

We had chosen to eat at The Crows Nest as recommended on Trip Advisor but sadly it has closed down, out of business. Went to Phoenix on the rebound having seen street signboard. We wanted a Sunday Roast and got just what we wanted. Clean and smart with lovely English staff. Good food in nice surroundings. Excellent value.

Excellent food staff value and service. Once you have tried you won't go anywhere else. Home from home cooking.

Our first night in Alvor and we came across Phoenix, although extremely busy they found us a table on the terrace. Fillet steak on the stone was gorgeous and only €14. Well worth a visit. One word of caution they don't accept cards cash only.
