Needed a special night at a special place and Big Reds supplied it all. Fantastic food and great service for a party of 50 people. We wanted to say goodbye to some special friends and had a fantastic night. Thanks to Nick and all the staff for making it such a special evening. We will never forget it.

A warm and friendly welcome on a wet February night. The front of house was very obliging and nothing was too much trouble for catering for our party which included 4 children aged 6 months to 12 years. The food was spot on and enjoyed by all. Will definitely be back in April on my next visit to the algarve.

The service was excellent at Big Red's with a friendly atmosphere. I couldn't decide between steak and ribs so the 'Big Red's combo' was a great choice! My young son had the home made chicken nuggets which were delicious! Will definitely eat here again!!

We ate at Big Reds again last night. They have just re-opened and it was excellent as always. I only ever have the medium ribs, which is a very decent portion, and they were perfect as usual with bbq sauce and onion rings on the side. We ordered the chicken nuggets from the childens menu for our daughter, and out... More

Kids well catered for to with a bouncy castle out front to keep them entertained. Reservations advisable especially at peak times but to be fair people were... More

We found this place on the last day of our holiday and it didn't disappoint. Very friendly staff, nice big dining area and very tasty food. We will be back in Alvor this year so hope to pay another visit.

Yet again Nick and his team pulled out all the stops for a fantastic New Year Evening. The food was its usual excellent fare and the staff worked their socks off all night always smiling. Everything went smoothly a feat of its own due to the sheer numbers who were catered for. Nothing was rushed, a thoroughly enjoyable night yet... More
