I loved this little restaurant in Alvor. The best thing about the restaurant is once you have the table you can relax easy and have the table for the night. The quality of the food is very high and great value for money. I had chicken peri peri one night and chicken kebab another night. They both came with potatoes,... More

Wonderful atmosphere, excellent food, very affordable, and superb service. What more could you ask for in a restaurant. I definitely recommend eating here if you have the chance. Make sure to ask for Nicholas Cage (aka Nick). He offers great stories and will make your visit worthwhile. -Posted by Brittany Spears and Will Smith

Just arrived back after week in Alvor. Ate every night at this Bistro. Sad you may think but if it ain't broke don't fix it. Tried different dish each night, all were excellently presented and well cooked. Strongly recommend fish [bream or sea bass] best I have tasted, all meals served with fresh vegetable selection. You must book table first,... More

Just had a meal in this restaurant with two friends. Two of us had lamp chops and one of us had chicken Piri. The service and the food was the best we have had in the many times we have visited the Algarve. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough.

We were a table for 4 We loved the quirky decor and atmosphere. There is what appears to be a small limited menu but each of our choices was well cooked and delicious. Service wa good and we have booked to go back again. The "free" red wine was perfectly acceptable. Overall great value for money.

Went here last night, the starters and mains was delicious, never had a dessert as too full. Would recommend to anyone, we will return on our next visit to this lovely village.
