We were greeted and treated in a very friendly, respectful and efficient manner from start to finish. Both the male waiters on duty on Wednesday 5th October 2016, were super nice and made us feel very welcomed. I was thrilled to be able to have Cataplana for one as I have not seen this in any other restaurant. I had... More

Visited this restaurant several times over the past 3 years when visiting Alvor. The standard has remained the same, and the choice is excellent. Would highly recommend it.

.It is an average restaurant in every way. The food was good, but nothing outstanding. Service was OK and the prices reasonable. Not a place to remember and come again.

Me and my family visited here multiple times whilst on holiday. Best food! I recommend the steak on stone for meat lovers, one of my favourite meals out there. The staff are so lovely and it gives a great, homely atmosphere. The view from upstairs it's also very beautiful!

Very good traditional food and the service was excellent. We had the Cataplana (Speciality of the restaurant) which was absolutely fantastic. Great place.

I didn't think this restaurant was value for money as it is overpriced in comparison to it's competitors. You are really paying for the view. Perfect location for dining during the day but we visited at night. It was slightly cold and we opted to sit indoors on arrival. The venue is quiet large and there were approximately 20 other...

Was greeted by a lovely smiley young waiter. Everyone seemed happy, mind you there was a lot of wine being consumed by customers. We waited for what seemed like forever (45 mins). My partner was very happy with their meal and that's why i've given it a good rating. I was less happy with my chicken in mushroom sauce. It's... More

The atmosphere and the food are fabulous. Our waiter was very warm and friendly. Most helpful too. I had spaghetti with seafood and the whole dish was absolutely delicious, reasonably priced too. The only downfall was that we waited for 40 minutes for our food to be served...
