Simple but beautiful food. The sea bass is amazing. Had it with rice and salad. You will want sea bass in the uk again though !!
Would also recommend the fig and carab cake with ice cream.

Amazing place. No wonder it is booked for weeks and the tip is unless you want a table at 10pm book before you fly out here. You cannot fault the food simply fantastic and the fish and mussels off the chart. I recommend Mango Mousse as a dessert also but everything is flawless so you cannot go wrong. Great service and ambience amazing and the place is near the front of the harbour. Went twice in a week and booked in advance. I cannot recommend this place highly enough and Alvor has so many great restaurants but don’t miss out on this one.

This was our 2nd year visiting this wonderful restaurant. We had pre booked a table prior to leaving UK and were given a warm welcome. The food is absolutely fantastic all cooked outside by the lovely Ricardo and so fresh each and every time we visited (5 nights out of our 14 night stay!). Excellent efficient staff who are very professional but friendly-highly recommended especially the fish kebab! Thanks Marco once again for looking after us- see you Sept hopefully!

We ave been coming here for several years and it remains our favourite fish restaurant. Perhaps not as flash looking as some of the newer restaurants opposite but if quality means anything to you go here.
This is a summary of our 3 meals in May. Service is friendly, helpfull, and efficient despite them being full on all 3 occasions. The fish is cooked on the BBQ outside by someone who knows what they are doing and does not overcook the food (as happens quite a lot at other places)

Twice we had a whole Turbot between us which in England would cost a fortune yet here it was affordable. A fabulous fish with great flavour it was treated, cooked and presented off the bone with considerable care. Served with a fresh salad and some chips together with a great bottle of Chardonnay we were well pleased.

Make sure you book a table as they will be full in the Summer.
