Ate here tonight on recommendation, gotta say it's the worst meal we've had in Alvor. We both had seabass which was cooked nicely and quite flavoursome but the potatoes served with it were freezing cold, inedible. We also got a portion of chips which were...More

May not look too special, but it's great quality & value. No frills, but the quality of the fish is great & two can dine here for under 30 euros, if you don't have more than a couple of beers!

We have eaten in this roof terrace restaurant twice, both times having grilled goldenbream and the fish is excellent. It's very reasonably priced and certainly one of the better fish dishes we have had in Alvor. Deserts were a little disappointing but I would return...More
