View of the harbour. Romance Great fish. Great food. Ambiance. Oliver as our waiter. A terrific personality and boy he fillets fish to within an inch of their lives. I'm pretty scared of fish bones but he filleted my fish last year and this year. Guess what? No bones... I totally enjoyed my meal. Great wine and resonably priced too.... More

Our first stop this year and certainly not disappointed. Started off with a very tasty Tuna salad and then the large King Prawns. Very tasty as per photo. My son had a large portion of Clams followed by his favourite Fish Stew, which is normally for two but he managed to finish on his own. A simple but tasty desert... More

We ate here as a family in a pleasant restaurant overlooking the harbour at Alvor. There was a wide variety of grilled fish on offer: starters included hot garlic prawns which was very good and fish soup which was good but not hot enough despite trying again; main courses were either kebabs of monkfish (a bit dry) or chicken which...

Good friendly attentive service. Mainly fish oriented menu which features the days catch. The large Seabass, shared between three was well cooked and served. My wife's large prawns were unfortunately a bit over cooked.

One of the nicest places to eat in Alvor. Catering for all food tastes. I'm a vegetarian and this place offers a good selection. The staff are really helpful and accommodating. Really nice and relaxing atmosphere.

This placed has never failed to please us. The location beside the small harbour was lovely. We were greeted warmly and service throughout was excellent. They suggested snapper steaks, it was delicious. With a starter, half bottle of wine, soft drinks and traditional cake it came to 45 euros. Good value, great night, we will return.

We ate hear after it was recommended by a fantastic local taxi driver and weren't disappointed. We were keen to try some local fresh produce and as the fisherman hauled their latest catch into the fridges during our visit you can't get much fresher! Opting for the monkfish kebab and tuna steak we weren't disappointed with either - beautiful taste,... More

Great location to watch the sunset. Service was exceptional. Food was nice but did not try their speciality which is seafood.
