Escabache to start were very tasty in a sweet onion sauce and the Portugues black sausages cooked at the table also excellent. 2 specials of sole in a ratatouille type sauce were... More

Continuing our gastronomic tour of Alvor we took our lunch here today. We had a very pleasant lunch with a good fresh fish shared. Our waiter was attentive and informative. The view is positively stunning. Not many other diners and very high prices.

It started well and ended badly. The waitress bought over a big plate of fish explaining it as "fish of the day" which everyone took their pick from. The food arrived and was brilliant across the table, huge prawns, nice fresh fish, good wine and an amazing sunset view across the harbour which all contributed to a brilliant experience. Unfortunately... More

Can't comment on the food but the wine and service is brilliant. It has the best view in alvor. My friend had a jug of sangria which she said was very authentic.

We've been to this restaurant a number of times over the years and it's always of a high quality and very reasonable. We all had the dish of the day, chicken breast in a peppercorn sauce with salad and chips, superb and only 9 euros. Good food, good service, fantastic views.

Visited this restaurant while on holiday because of the review's on TripAdvisor. I can only assume that my view of good food is different to other reviews. Let's start with the good stuff. It was nice to be able to sit outside and see the view of the harbour. The staff were helpful and friendly. This was the most expensive... More
