Went to the Phoenix again while holidaying in Alvor. Have been several times over the past 5 years. The food is good old fashioned English food. Not sure why we got cabbage so much, but the chicken was good. The portions are very generous, sometimes too full for dessert. Friendly place and always popular. Sometimes you have to wait quite...

been extended this year and food took too long so we only ate here the once. Shame because we loved the food last year but I think by thinking big they've probably spoiled what made them good!

After visiting this restaurant last year just had to go again. Sunday roast is a must plus home made steak pie. As most restaurants in Alvor are on the small side it is always advisable to book in advance as this one is extremely popular on Sundays.

Felt guilty having a English roast as we were in Portugal but this is not to be missed. Need to book well in advance.
