I should start my review b y saying I always check previous reviews before I go to a restaurant I haven't been in before in this case excellent reviews from the start it was a really warm welcome. Greeted like a member of the family...we opted for 5 tapas and a bottle of white wine the food was outstanding at 35 pound excellent value we were both full and as it was my wife's birthday they gave her a glass of bubbly and a small tart with a candle and sang happy birthday such a lovely gesture from a good old fashioned restaurant in my opinion the best restaurant in southsea.More

My partner and I regulars here. The reasons for this will be apparent when you go there. The staff are super friendly and the guy in charge gives everyone the warmest welcome you could get, outside a family gathering. The menu is extensive but we...have never experienced anything other than delicious food. It is not pretentious, just straightforward and cooked to perfection. Marvelous tapas starters with a wonderful main course, and the inevitable dessert. You will leave full but your wallet won't be complaining. A truly excellent place for a wonderful evening.More

This is the best restaurant in Pompey by a country mile. In fact, it's the best restaurant I've ever been to and that's echoed by my girlfriend, friends and family who have came. The food is absolutely outrageous. The grilled meat skewer is the best...meal I have ever had. We have been about 10 times now and the owner Mario (who has the art of hosting down perfected) always recognises and welcomes us along with his brilliant team of servers. I honestly cannot recommend this place highly enough. It's ruined nights out for us in a way because we don't want to try anywhere else now lol Algarve's is just too good. Will undoubtedly be back in a few weeks, and then a few weeks after, and repeat repeat repeat. Unbelievable.More

I have had at least 6 meals over the past few years at Algarve's Grill, The food is excellent but the best thing about this restaurant is the staff - they are awesome. A genuine Portuguese menu with a huge range of choices including many...tapas dishes and hence you can go for a blow-out or just a few drinks and nibbles. Right up there amongst my favourite eateries in Portsmouth - highly recommended.More

We were on a short break down in Portsmouth and decided to try Algarve's Grill, and we were certainly not disappointed. We were a group of four and although we arrived around 8pm and without a reservation, they were happy to accommodate us. The team...made us feel very welcome and provided exceptional service too. Food overall was exceptional and exactly what we expected from Portuguese cuisine. Hospitality was exceptional and we were very impressed with everything overall. Nice to find and support independent restaurants. We will be back, and certainly do recommend this restaurant.More

Algarve Grill have the best staff for miles, the guy who runs it is amazing as are his staff. We had a gorgeous meal and they squeezed us in though very busy without a booking. Starters Halloumi and the chicken and bacon between us, mains...again we shared... ribs (the best and most tender anywhere) and the garlic prawns with added chilli were to die for ... a really lovely atmosphere and we should go more often!!!More

Sometimes is hard to find good traditional food from your country in a different part of the world but Algarve’s grill brought Portuguese cuisine closer to all the Portuguese community in the south. I always have the best experience when I go there. The food...is great, there is plenty of options, it’s original and tasty. The staff is very welcoming and the owner Mario is the best host. He will make you feel very welcome and make you feel at home. I definitely recommend visiting this restaurant if you go to Portsmouth.More

hi sorry I didn't see the message, I just went in and have asked for gluten free options, all the restaurants in Southsea are very good with Gluten free options although not all the restaurants may have a proper menu.
