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.

Great location & amazing food. Ate here both at lunch time and at dinner time 2/3 times during our week stay. The waiters (think they maybe brothers 😂) are attentive & very personable. Food is delicious we had the Octopus, baby squids, tiger prawns, golden...bream & sole….there is so much fresh fish to choose from you are really spoilt for choice. Thoroughly recommend a visit to this little gem of a Restuarant located directly on the beach / boardwalk.More

I would suggest to avoid this place. The staff were extremely rude and did not make us feel welcome. This is surprising considering the reviews that we have read about the place. I would suggest heading to Tobias restaurant next door where it is more...chilled and the owner is much more friendly.More

We had lunch for 2. For starters, the service was horrible, we reserved a table for 14:30 ‘cause when we came here previsouly at like 14 o’clock they told us they had no table available. Later when we came to finally have our lunch, the...waiter told us we needed to wait another 15 minutes. When we FINALLY sat down. After finally sitting down, waited another 10 minutes for someone to bring us the menu as they didn’t quite notice we were here. I ordered a “Bife Pimenta” and my sister ordered an “Omelele de fiambre”. My steak was like 50% fat, horrible. It came medium as I asked but the meat was awful. My sister’s omelette was fine. Severely overpriced for what the quality was.More

Popped in for lunch. Very slow to even seat us and it didn't improve. We were sat for at least 10 mins before they even asked if we wanted a drink. Only ordered a ham sandwich and plate of chips which took ages to come....Ham sandwich came without any butter (just bread and 1 slice of ham) in it so asked for butter and got charged an extra 2 euros for 2 packets of butter. Ate our food and left. Won't be going back again.More

Near the eastern end of the board walk on Alvor beach, this restaurant is perfectly located right on the beach overlooking the sea. We shared Razor Clams and then had fresh Red Snapper from display case. Both very good, and expertly boned in advance. Very...nice bottle of recommended white wine to accompany. Drinks before and coffee after all for €81. Had a super table facing beach watching late swimmers in the sea. Glorious!More

This is one of a number of small restaurants/cafes on or around the beach at Alvor all of which have a fantastic view some slightly better but all worth a visit. The fare was very much the same and good value. Try one or try...all like we did.More

Was nice to be back after 4 years . Received nice reception off the owner . We’d had so many great meals / times there over the years . And gladly don’t think the young idiot that I’d had the run in with lasted much...longer .. the food was excellent. Weather on the day wasn’t great so couldn’t spend the day on the beds by the beach .. Or use the facilities to get changed that led to the bust up last time !! ! ( although had the owner been present that wouldn’t have happened) the only thing was No Tropico Burger 🍔????? Kids were dismayed 😩 !! But their squid 🦑 was excellent as was my Swordfish and my wife’s Tuna Hope to visit next time .its been 10 years we’ve been coming here ..glad it’s still going strongMore

Very slow service, took over 20mins to order and receive drinks. It was an ordinary evening and couldn’t see a reason for it being so slow. Food order also took a while - but when it did come it was fresh, hot and tasted great....Waited ages again for dessert menu and by this time very fed up indeed - so got up, paid at the counter and left. Wouldn’t recommend.More

We popped in here on our first night in the Algarve. The beach view was nice but the food was poor and overpriced. The service depended on which fellow we got. One fellow was really kind and friendly. Seemed genuine. The other seemed pretty grumpy....When we asked for some tap water he told us... with a straight face, that it comes out of the ocean and thus he could not serve it. We’ve been in Portugal for awhile now and have been drinking tap water everywhere. The locals do too. No one likes being lied to. We had chicken and salads and pasta. The feta and the olives on the Greek salad (€8.50) came out of a jar. Nothing was really fresh or homemade. Bit of a disappointment. They have one beer on tap. Estrella. €3.50 for a pint. The house red wine was ok but not great. There are many better places to eat. This one survives on location.More
