If you are traveling to Alvor, you will need to book this in advance. Sometimes the hype gets in the way of a good story, however, this was a great night. Food fantastic, the wait service brilliant and no rush out the door. Loved it.

8 of us went for a 3 course meal, every meal was exceptional in every way. Booking in advance essential. I had the fillet steak, probably the best fillet I've had in recent years. The lamb shank was also very very good.
