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.

My partner Carol and I have been visiting Alvor for many years and always make a point of going to Salsa Bistro for dinner whilst we are there. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is always amazing, the wine is quality at an...affordable price and we are always offered a complimentary drink on arrival and a glass of port at the end of the meal. On this occasion Carol had the lamb chops and I had the pork loin with grapes served in a rich sweet sauce. Both meals were fabulous. We always book well in advance as it is a small restaurant and we like the table for two by the window next to the bookcase which is quiet and secluded. Many thanks to Vitali and the staff. We are looking forward to our next visit already.More

What a wonderful little place - really great service and delicious food. We shared the paella which was a generous portion and defeated both of us. would recommend you book.

My family and I ate in Salsa Bistro last night. I can't believe we had never eaten there before. What a hidden gem it is. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. A small cozy restaurant where the staff are very friendly. We...will definitely eat there again when we're in Alvor.More

We visited Salsa Bistro whilst on holiday with our 2 children. Service was excellent and nothing too much trouble, front of house was attentive and observant throughout. Food was excellent, and more than enough for us all, the kids loved it and we loved it,...it felt like a real personal service done singlehanded by one member of staff out front. No stress in the kitchen, memorised orders and food was faultless, such a pity we only found you on our last night, we will be back, well done to all involved 5 stars from us ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️More

Fabulous meal at this small but perfectly formed restaurant, just off the main strip and harbour front. Our party was 4 adults, 2 teenagers and a 5 and 2 year old. We had been recommended to this place in June on a group Facebook page...for the town, but didn't get the opportunity to visit. My wife and I have been regular visitors to Alvor since 2001, our children and their families have been as well since we bought an apartment in 2007. Our ages range from 70 to 2 years old and I have to say this is probably the best restaurant to cater for that age range.More

We enjoyed sangria in Cafe Ancora sitting in the sun then moved into Salsa Bistro for wonderful dinner. The service was amazing. The special of sea bass with tomato sauce on the side was absolutely delicious. I can definitely recommend trying this friendly restaurant.

We visited Alvor for the first time today and found Salsa Bistro. Both the service and food were amazing, as was the wine. The Owners took plenty of time to speak to us, the steak and lamb chops were perfect. Thanks again for a fabulous...meal and evening!More

I can honestly say this was some of the worst food I have ever been served in a restaraunt. Lamb shank was basically a bone, chicken was dry as the Sahara, potato's cremated. Truly, truly awful.

From the moment you book, nothing is too much trouble for Vlodomyr and Vitali, everything is spotless, the service is attentive and the food is beautiful and always hot when it reaches you. The portions are more than adequate and, delightfully, they brought out cake...as it had been my birthday the day before which they had spotted on Facebook. Try it, you won’t regret it.More
