A riberia or o arco de velha

Been to Alvor for last 6 years and always visit a riberia... always tempted to try o arco but always chicken out at last minute.

Should I try it or any other recommendations?

We ate at Arcos last week and it was excellent. It's our favourite restaurant and the fish is superb. Great staff and attentive service. Give it a try and I hope you like it. You may have to book in advance as it is exceptionally popular.

Our favourite restaurant is Capacho. It's very Portuguese with proper service and proper food at fair prices.

I agree with all the comments above about O Arco Da Velha - absolutely superb! I also love Capacho, so definitely worth going there too.

Yes, Capacho is great.. I was there on New Year's Eve and the meal was excellent. Super hospitality and excellent food. Very nice family who own and manage the restaurant.

O Arco is our favorite restaurant in Alvor. Superb food and service. Ricardo and Marco run a fantastic restaurant. Can't wait to go back next week!
