Front line restaurants

Arriving later this. First time in Alvor. We normally never choose to eat in frontline restaurants as usually they are very expensive in comparison and aimed at the passing tourist trade. But my limited research suggests this isn’t the case in Alvor. Usually we walk back a couple of streets for better food/value. Is this case in Alvor?

It can be...wherever you go a view comes at a price and you might find them a few euros more expensive but not massively so.

Not like the €10 bottle of beer I had at a hotel looking onto the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin....😯😯😯

£11 for a pint in Oslo in 2009. On a lads weekend....there was plenty of whingeing that weekend. As you say, you pay for the view so bound be a little more expensive.

The ones overlooking the fishing Harbour at the bottom of Rua Dr Frederio Ramos Mendes tend to be slightly more expensive than the ones on the main street itself.

In turn, they tend to be slightly more expensive than those in the less-frequented streets, but in both instances the difference is so slight as to be hardly noticeable.

We do find the food and drink do get progressively more expensive as you get closer to the harbor front but not to the extent that we would refuse to eat in them. For example you can get a beer at Suica for 90 cents or about 3 euro on the harbor front at say Cafe Na Ria we enjoy them both for different reasons Suica for a cheap refreshing drink or two or Cafe Na Ria for the views same applies to food usually eat snacks away from the front ie chicken market then eat at the more popular on an evening although this is not always the case as there are some good restaurants away front the front. I assume the rents dictate the prices to a certain extent. Overall never thought we have overpaid for what we have had.

We paid £10 per pint in Central Park New York!!!!
