We dined here on our first night in Alvor and was a meal, scenery and experience to remember. The staff were impeccable and appeared to thoroughly enjoy their jobs, carefully providing personal recommendations. Fresh fish like no other!

I first came upon this hidden gem after a long walk along Alvor Beach . Through a gap in the rocks and there it was . It can also be reached from Prainha Resort coming down in a lift " 007 " style into the rear of the restaurant . An excellent Bar and restaurant . Particularly influenced by the Mediterranean Cuisine, Caniço serves a large selection of shellfish On my first visit many years ago there was a young man sitting on the beach below us as we enjoyed our cocktails , wearing a baseball cap which read " Heaven Can Wait " Sounds about right !!!!

Quirky and quaint find. Definitely recommend you hunt this little gem down love the concept and in a really nice location with a gorgeous view. Only had drinks but the food smelt really good. Over looking the sea you could sit there for hours. We did try and go again but because the sea was bad there was no way of getting to it so we were so glad we got to once on our holiday!

Our B&B owner suggested this place and we were so glad we ate here! To get to the place one has to go through a cave and walk a bit but it is so worth it....cave open up on the beach and restaurant is amazing.

Fresh sea food and so many options to pick from!

I highly recommend it..

Charming restaurant with friendly staff, tasty food and good drinks selection. The wait for food was a little long however, the atmosphere and sea view made up for this.

The octopus, bbq cod and pork rib dishes come highly recommended. The steak was tasty however, didn't come rare as asked.
