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.

We recently visited Alvor for a long weekend to escape the freezing conditions back in England and we were pleasantly surprised by the number of restaurants still open in the village. We were attracted to Sereia by a pleasant young lady outside of the restaurant...as we walked passed at lunch time, so we went back in the evening and were not disappointed. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and we could not fault the service or the quality of the food. Very good menu choice and reasonably priced. Thank you.More

We arrived in Alvor a first visit and wanted a special meal for a celebration. We chose this restaurant looking at reviews and certainly were not disappointed. A friendly greeting and tasty food from starters to desert made our evening a special treat . Service...was very professional if a little serious. Can't wait to return thoroughly recommend his culinary experience. The freshness of Tuna and seafood paste was great . Prawn curry and Dourada so tasty and well presented .Cheesecake homemade and very good , Thankyou all at Series... Richard and MaryMore

We went in here at lunchtime because we saw a board outside advertising a lunch menu. When we went in & got the menus, it was all dinner food, so we called over the waiter (looked like senior / boss) & asked is there a...lunch menu. He said 'yes, it's on the board outside'...... noticing our surprise at that answer (I guess) he then listed everything that was on the board outside - but didn't seem too happy at all (maybe because the lunches were cheaper?). Obviously we couldn't remember everything he listed, so my husband went outside and took a photo of the board & brought it back to the table so we could read it. We ordered a Tuna salad and a chicken salad (€9.80 each) and some bread. The bread didn't come out with the salads so when we were half way through I called a younger waiter & asked for the bread, which he brought over - but no butter (which I had assumed wold come with it), so I called him back & asked for the butter & he seemed quite annoyed, but brought it quickly. When we got the bill, I realised the butter cost €1.60 for 2 small portions! However, the salads were very good - really tasty and loads in it, and apart from the 2 grumpy waiters the service was quite good - and the last waiter was very smiley and friendly :-) I'd definitely come back.More

Prebooked a table for dinner the day before which was a good move as the restaurant was busy from when it opened and this was a Tuesday! They bring a plate of fresh fish (for display only) to choose fish of the day. If you...want that option they come out with your fish and advise how much it will cost before they cook it. When we went they were looking to share one fish between two. We went for Red Snapper which came in at just under 40 Euros for the whole fish. It was superb! The waiter comes and removes the bone at the table and then serves. Comes with potatoes veg and salad all well cooked/presented. We had Champagne Sangria which was Ok (red berries made it look red and perhaps too sour?). We had Portuguese crème caramel and ice cream which were both good. Recommended if you like fresh fish superbly cooked and most of bones removed!More

On each trip to Alvor we make it our business to head to Sereia for dinner (often more than once). This is a busy restaurant too so booking is essential. The food is excellent with top not h service each time. For anyone on holiday...in the area, make it a point to book a tableMore

I enjoyed this restaurant a lot! They were very clean, good service and most importantly great food! We were a little disappointed that some foods like sardine aren’t served at dinner times because they are ‘to cheap to serve’ but other than that it was...a great restaurant with great waiters! Would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are visiting Alvor!More

Food here was excellent - we shared mussels to start which were lovely! Between us for main course we had monkfish (1 skewered 1 with prawns plated), prawn curry and grilled salt cod. All delicious. On ordering the salt cod I was asked if I...had eaten Portuguese cod before … as it is salted and not fresh … obviously experienced in this being a surprise to some people!! The curry was served with a lot of fruit which was a surprise to daughter. As was the bib … which made our evening!! Food was not as (temperature) hot as we would have expected … but still good! We hadn’t booked a table but had arrived early enough to be able to be seated before table required later.More
