We went for a meal here last night and it's with regret that I'm having to leave such a awful review. The service was awful. We'd ordered starters and hasn't even finished them & the main was brought to the table. We requested they where taken away until we finished the starter. The main meal was unfortunately not any better... More

In previous years we would make a beeline for this restaurant. However, this we were disappointed. Although the chicken Piri Piri was edible it was not Piri Piri chicken but cubed chicken breast kebab served with Piri Piri sauce.

This place affords and excellent view being right next to the water. Food prices are reasonable, and food quality was fair. The piri piri chicken was a little dry, and served unseasoned and with no sauce (just plain roasted chicken).

The best thing about this restaurant is it's location and view. This was our first trip to Alvor, which we enjoyed and found some excellent places to eat. Sadly, this wasn't one of them. We were encouraged to try it when the 'tout' outside said he was a veggy and that it was 'vegetarian friendly'. My wife does not eat... More

I ate here on the first night of a holiday. The view was lovely - outside at sunset, overlooking the port. The food was nice - nothing exceptional. Staff were ok - possibly need to be slightly more attentive. Fine for the price of food.

Our restaurant opened in September 2011. We offer the tastes of the Algarve, fish, seafood and meat. Entertainment is usual each evening in the summer, and on selected nights during the winter and early spring. We have a wonderful view of the harbour whether you dine upstairs or downstairs. Visit us for a leisurely drink. If you would like a function we can seat more then 200 guests. Find more information on our web-site.
