Very friendly restaurant right on the beach. Excellent seafood, good desserts (not the usual frozen dessert selection) and my daughter said the spaghetti Bolognese was the best ever. Very good value. Busy and fun atmosphere at lunchtime. Quieter in the evenings. Lovely position and view and great with kids as they can play on the beach just outside.

We went to Tropico for lunch based upon good reviews. We shared the shrimp and monkfish skewern which was very nice. We left feeling that it was a good place for a lunch but didn't feel enticed to go back for an evening meal. Compared to other beach front restaurants we had tried this was fair. Nice place for lunch.

What a great place! The outside doesn't do it justice. We had our best meal so far of our holiday. Delicious pork with clams, lovely monkfish medallions washed down with a recommended Portuguese red.... Very friendly service, great with the kids..... Will definitely go again.....

We visited twice and had to cancel a reservation we had for the third time. On our first time we had to wait a long time for our food for dinner, we were the last customers and many things had run out however it was worth the wait for that Cataplana! We decided to give it another try for lunch... More

Went there based on the positive reviews on friendliness and the good food. The food was alright and the location is great, no doubt. However, I did not feel welcome at all, it simply did not mach what you would expect from this beautiful location. On top of that, check your bill. Might have been a mistake but shouldn't happen...

Thank you for your comment. Is not normal that mistakes like that happen, or they should not happen. To change a table number when dial items, can happen but we should have checked better and for that I appolagise ! I am sorry you did not feel welcome, August is a terrible moth, still no excuse. Thank you and sorry. More

We can't recommend tropico enough, super Mario and all the staff were so welcoming. Even if you hadn't booked a table, without fail he found a table for us everyday. Location, staff, food all fantastic!

Lunched here twice during our 6 day stay, food and service cannot be faulted. Delicious fresh fish with gorgeous salad, packed full of fresh fruit and veg combo!

We're currently in alvor and been to this spot for lunch & 2 dinners. Mario is great with the kids & provides all round great service. Food is fresh - I think better dinner menu than lunch but have always been happy
