My partner and I went to duartes with friends who regularly visit Alvor , we had 4 visits in 9 nights , whilst the restaurants decor and ambiance is not the most up to date , the food and service more than make up for it , the seafood and steaks are to die for , this restaurant in my opinion is the best quality and fantastic value for money , the service is Also spot on, staff can't do enough to please you , you must try this little gem when in Alvor , you won't be dissapointed :) , I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff for such a wonderful time and for taking such good care of us . Jack and Alison

I've read many of the reviews and they are all correct - this place has some really great fish (the owner has a stall in the main fish market) and lots of other very typical local dishes. Take a chance and try some - even if you don't really know what you are ordering - it will be a pleasant surprise!
The prices are really low for what you get.
Location is a bit off track and not suitable for a romantic honeymoon dinner - but if it's the quality of food that you look for in a restaurant, then this is the place.

A little off the beaten track, just 20 metres up the road from the popular Buganvilia, (Buganvilla is not the correct spelling!).
The owner of the Duarte is a fisherman who has a Fishmongers in the Portimao market and actually sells fish to most of the "touristy" and consequently more expensive restaurants in the area.
Duartes is a traditional Portuguese establishment with no airs and graces, just the best, freshest fish available.
Thankfully, the honest prices and lack of tourists, (mainly Portuguese customers), tend to keep the food snobs away!
Can you believe that Monkfish in a white bean stew cost only €9!! How much would this cost near the harbour?
Four, (yes 4), grilled chicken steaks in pepper sauce with salad for €6.50, the list goes on.
I have been aware of Duartes for a number of years but only ate there for the first time this October.
We went twice during our stay and I ate the Monkfish on both occasions, delicious!!
Although the menu doesn't offer a massive choice, (apart from a good selection of fish), there is more than enough to keep most people happy.
The service is relaxed and friendly. If you want theatrical or rapid service then this place is not for you.
If you want a nice, relaxed, great quality, traditional meal in a relatively informal atmosphere then you can't go wrong here.
