“Dont judge a book by its cover!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

This restaurant is one of my favourites. Although it doesnt look very appealing from the outside, it is worth forgetting about the decoration. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and although basic, comfortable. The menu isnt very large but has something for everyone and the food is always very fresh. Has free wifi so children can keep themselves busy! Very good value for money. We have taken lots of people there and never had a complaint.

Great steak on a stone. Vegetable soup was the best I have ever tasted. Nice people who value your custom.

“first not last”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Just back from our first trip to this restaurant.No reflection on the restaurant,the atmosphere was poor due to what i believe is still a lack of money and therefore a lack of customers in Alvor in general.We had two main courses,both superb fish,large water.litre house wine,total 25 euros.You may ask how they do it as i do but i believe the wages in Portugal are pittance in comparison to someEuropean countries

“genuine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Have passed this numerous times and never went in so this time said i would give it a go.So glad i did.From the moment we went in you knew they were glad to see you It is a small traditional portugese restaurant with a fairly decent menu although he does not seem to have fish in reserve to what is on show so you may not get what you want. I went twice/first time had swordfish which was very nice.Second time had to settle for scabbard which although not as nice was still acceptable.He was very apologetic and offered a free drink to both of us which some bigger places should learn from.He is very good at his job and also very nice so will be back in august[i am not a stew person but i know the monkfish in white bean stew is good]

“Absolutely fabulous ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

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
