Grand breakfast and my son got the bacon sandwich. The size of the slices of bread were massive, he was delighted! They do loads of different kinds of juices as well and very good value. Would definitely go back next time in the area

First time to try here tonight & it was lovely, sat outside in the terrace which we didn't even know they had. Food was lovely & very reasonably priced. Will be going back to try the breakfast. Only issue for me was they sat 6 of us at a table for 4 so it was a bit tight for space.... More

Steak on the stone and salmon/tuna are best I've ever tasted! Family friendly, very modern restaurant, affordable price and good customer service. Highly recommended and will definitely be coming back.

The Phoenix is awesome. We recently visited Alvor and went there 3 out of 7 nights - thats how good the food and the atmosphere is. The hostess is so welcoming and friendly and their Steak Pie is the BEST!!

Went for a meal here again this year, I had chicken and chips which was pretty average, and Husband had the Lasagne that was quite dry, waited quite a long time for food, had been told probably about half hour wait but was about 45 minutes, wouldn't rush back.

My favourite is always the half roast chicken with veg and potatoes! The cabbage is the best cabbage I have ever tasted - I want the recipe/technique! The only downside of The Phoenix is the staff can be cold. There is one member of staff who is very blunt and cold and doesn't interact with the public - it did... More

Went here twice during our stay. Steak on a plate was amazing. We tried somewhere round the corner and it was nowhere near as good. Best meal of our holiday. Thanks to all the staff. Massively recommend this place.

Sometimes, especially with kids you just fancy a Sunday roast. And that's exactly what we did here yesterday. Brilliant food and service.
