The bouncy castle is close by for the kids and yet doesn't disturb the tranquility of the relaxing atmosphere. We have been before and we will be back again as the young... read more

Firstly a great location away from the buzz of town with the bouncy castle being an added bonus for kids. Unfortunately the food was basic and much more expensive than anywhere else that we ate. Steak was tough and ribs were bland. I feel that there's a good market here if the quality of the food was improved.

Great menu, food and service. A very enjoyable experience. The bouncy castle was a bonus. The young adult section of menu was a feature I have never came across before and a very good idea.

Due to delayed flights and late arrival we decided to go to Big reds on our first night in Alvor as we were staying across the road.The bouncy castle was obviously a big pull for my 7&5yr olds We got seated outside quite quickly ,and I have to say that the pint of beer (Tagus) was astonishingly good .That was...

We visited after hearing good reviews on how great the steaks were. To say service was poor is a compliment. Wine ordered with food and despite 4 staff asking if we wanted drinks and 4 times of saying we were waiting on red wine, we eventually had wine served just as the mains arrived and after our startes. Sadly it... More

This is a big place with a bouncy castle outside so great for the kids, but alas their famous ribs are not marinated but just cooked and bbq sauce poured over which is disappointing. Also the steak was tough and overdone despite asking for it medium rare, and the pepper sauce was terrible. The food is not bad, as their... More
