This is our favourite restaurant in Alvor. The food is great, the fish always cooked beautifully, wine recommendations always good and they are fantastic with our 2 little boys. Nothing is ever too much trouble and we always leave having had a great evening.

Excellent food & service. Next to the taxi drop off by the harbour at Alvor, we always come here once or twice when visiting Alvor as it's so convenient especially for those with mobility problems. Give it a try-you won't be disappointed.
