We went to Big Reds 3 times during a 2 week stay in Alvor recently. We found all the staff very friendly and a great choice on the menu. We were particularly impressed that they had a 'young adults' menu which was great for our 10 year old who feels he's too big for childrens menus! We enjoyed all our... More

I too read all the great reviews but to be honest there is a lot better value in Alvor. For what we paid i would have expected a lot more. The steak itself was fine but the rest that came with it was poor.Enjoyed the bird show though.

Great food, friendly attentive staff and good value for money. A good choice of menu we settled for the Lamb shank which was well cooked and succulent and plenty of it.

Booked Big Reds for my wife's birthday and as always with Big Reds the service and food was outstanding to say the least. We had fillet on laver rock as the main and the meat melted in your mouth. After our meal the staff and owner brought a chocolate birthday cake out and sang happy birthday which was lovely. If... More

Nothing is too much trouble at this restaurant, we went in the day before and reserved a table and asked if Nick the owner would accommodate our request of serving tomato soup as everywhere else in Alvor only seem to serve vegetable soup, and much too our surprise he said yes no problem and let me say this on the...

This place is easy to find and park. It's a very nice place with very welcoming staff. Food was very nice and I liked the fact the chef did his rounds to see if the food was being eaten. No task was a problem for any of the staff and we were served promptly. We sat outside on a nice... More

Another favourite restaurant we visit each year. Clean friendly environment with plenty of room. The food is well cooked and tasty. The ribs were offered in small, medium and large potions...go hungry. Desert was a Knickerbocker glory which was everything you expect. Well done.

We'd been to Alvor six times in as many years but had never made it "up the hill" to Big Reds so we had really looked forward to the experience. As a steak-house you'd expect the meat to be good and it was. I had ribs and they were succulent and tasty, but the "supporting cast" was not up to... More

Brilliant night after six months of waiting to return here. To start with we had home made tomato soup which was gorgeous. My husband had sirloin steak on the stone and I had fillet of sea bream which when it came there were two beautifully cooked pieces of fish, we had asked for a salad and home cooked chunky fries,...
