We ate here three times during our one week stay so that gives you an idea of the quality of the food. It serves the most amazing organic produce and the owners emphasis is on healthy eating. I had the quinoa risotto with crusted chicken, salad and a soy based dipping sauce on two of my visits and monkfish in... More

With around 17 varieties of genuinely vegetarian options on the main menu, this turned out to be our best find in Alvor. My vegetarian wife was in heaven, and I was well catered for with excellent seafood and meat dishes.

Visited here one evening with family. Staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly - attentive without being smothering. I had steak, which was cooked to perfection...along with the very generous side portions. Their sangria is worth a try too! If I were back this way I'd certainly visit again!

The starter of burnt garlic bread nearly broke my teeth. The veg with main was so undercooked I couldn't get my fork in it. When i complained they replaced it with more of same and chips to replace some local dish that looked like mush but the meat was ok! Was offered free sweet but it didn't make up for... More

Fresh, expertly prepared, locally sourced, quality food. Great vegan dishes and very fresh seafood. So good we dined here twice in the same week. The smoked St. Pierre fish fillet and gnocci (also referenced on this page), is really, really good and apparently a unique dish in Alvor. Great service and staff are friendly. We'll be back again. My best... More

Whilst not a vegetarian or vegan restaurant there are over a dozen vegetarian options and two vegan options on the menu. We tried both the vegan meals and were delighted. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The staff were friendly, helpful and informative. We sat on a protected terrace with a view over the estuary and watched the sky... More

Have now dined at the Lusitania twice during our holiday in Alvor. Cannot praise this place highly enough. Great location,helpful well informed staff, and above all fantastic local organic food. There are no shortage of places to dine in Alvor, but sadly too many follow a very similar theme and chips seem to accompany most dishes. Lusitania is a break... More

We liked the fact that this restaurant serves good food and presented its dishes well. The prawn cocktail looked and tasted great. A special of scallops with mango purée was fresh and perfectly cooked. Mains were equally good and we would recommend the smoked St Pierre (John Dory) with gnocchi and the oven baked octopus. A sharing plate of a... More
