I visited this restaurant 3 nights in a row and had fantastic meal and service on all occasions. The staff are friendly and welcoming, attentive without being in your face and are happy to recommend suggestions. The food was amazing, fish, seafood linguine and steak - nothing to complain about. The deserts, well yum says it all :) To top... More

This was our first visit to Vilamoura and this restaurant. We were guided by online reviews and we were not disappointed. We had steaks from the menu and we must say that they were the best we,'ve ever had.The service was excellent. The restaurant was very modern and clean. Prices slightly more expensive, but we'll worth it. We highly recommend.

Used this restaurant several times on previous visits to Vilamoura and always found it good. I was initially dis-made to find it changed from very traditional décor to contemporary but soon found it was just as good as was the service. Went there twice in final two days of holiday and will return this year

We have been coming to this restaurant for years. We were really looking forward to a nice dinner and wanted to go to our favourite restaurant in Villamoura - however we were disappointed when our food arrived incorrectly. They did do me a new meal after explaining I wasn't happy but the new meal still was not great, but it... More

We had a lovely meal, and the house wine was great. Very good service. I'd be fine if restaurants did without music, but at least in this case it wasn't the usual awful music. Quite odd for an upscale restaurant to have several TVs on, but that might be aimed at football fans. Not sure, but it might have been... More

Been to Don Alfonso two years on the trot. Lovely clean restaurant, and the food is really good. I had lamb and it was beautifully cooked and well presented. Staff buzzing around we're terrific and attentive. Not sure about TV in the restaurant but maybe that is just me. We enjoy this more than any other Vilamoura restaurant and it... More

An altogether super evening, restaurant is very classy, great design and layout. We had super steaks, good value and good service. Handy For the marina. This place was recommended to us by a nice couple from Ireland who we met golfing in the area.Good recommendation.

As we visited the restaurant in 2012, we decided to give it another try on 2013. It was a warm evening in October and the large doors were open which give it a nice feel. The staff were attentive and helpful. We had a range of starters (8 of us dined). The foie gras I had for starter was excellent.... More

You would be mad to visit Vilamoura without going to this restaurant. Both the steak and seafood were excellent. The waiting staff polite and well informed. The best meal we have had on our trip. Please visit!!!

Went on the recommendation of a friend who is involved with the European golf tour as this is where they eat. From start to finish the welcome, the service, the quality of food and the wine list were without fault A lovely place to eat, away from the harbour but close enough to access.
