A great place to sample the fruits of the ocean. A buzzy situation on the seafront. Friendly staff help with difficult choices. We demolished a large stone bass. Recommended.

Have you ever had a memorable experience somewhere that you wish that you could repeat ? Well A Ribiera did that not only for me but a whole bunch of friends who visit Alvor once a year. To me this restaurant is truly Portuguese, the host is both friendly and extremely attentive. The menu lists fish of the highest caliber,... More

Having eaten in some of the tastiest restaurants this one is amongst the best. At a price that is not too dissimilar from a decent pub meal in England, you can get the finest of fresh food from this restaurant. When I'm in Prtugal and nearby I dine in this restaurant as often as possible. The food and service is... More

This is a busy restaurant on the front at Alvor, busy even though we were outside the holiday season, being the end of February. Tempted by the smell of BBQ fish we were not at all disappointed with wonderful shellfish, prawns and sea bream cooked beautifully, all accompanied by good local wine. The staff are attentive and helpful,and service is... More

Average fish and meat dishes compared to other restaurants, nice drinks and atmosphere though. Good view and very busy with locals.

It was a scorching day with little wind which made sitting inside very uncomfortable for me which sadly meant I could not relax and enjoy my food or company. I went for the tuna this time which at first was a lovely taste, but I soon realised it was far too salty and that I'd end up having a real... More

Lovely family-run fish restaurant right on the waterfront in Alvor. Super welcoming and friendly staff, we had a delicious grilled fish to share (a Dorado) taken off the bone expertly at your table. They have some out-of-a-packet deserts but also some locally-made Portuguese ones so def. have one of the later if you are want afters. Lovely choice for an... More

The staff are just incredible including a very charming and professional restaurant manager. On the first night... More
