If it's salubrious surroundings you're after, this is not for you, however, if you like your fish cooked perfectly and served by good natured, helpful staff, you'll love it. A little gem.

Just back from Alvor what a joy to see that this FANTASTIC restaurant is still in business,. I eat in Chefe Joao every night except Sunday and Monday (went to Lagos, for a couple of days) The fish is out of this World and for p[rice is far superior to that offered by the two large restaurants by the 'harbour' as you walk up the steep street toward the cross roads and Chefe Joao.
