Loved this place

Not the cheapest place to eat in Alvor for a reason, the food is worth paying for and the service is excellent.

A little bit out of the Village but well worth the short journey. Food is sensational. Been here four times and never disappoints. The pork fillet melts and the steaks sizzle on the stone. Service is truly professional and attentive. Busy but relaxing with plenty to entertain young children while you wait for your meal. Anyone who visits Alvor should... More

The food was excellent, plentiful and, given what we had to eat, quite reasonable (although not cheap or properly represented by the '£' rating that it appeared under on Trip Advisor). The staff were really friendly and the service speedy and efficient. The theatre that surrounded the Crepe Suzette was worth the visit alone!) The steaks were huge, juicy, cooked... More

Stayed in alvor and big reds was just down the road from where we were staying, it's a nice 1.5k from the town, sat outside as there didn't seem to be any AC inside? Nice friendly staff, but service was slow, my son and husbands steaks were quite small, but sufficient, I had the chicken with lobster mousse, very nice... More

A meal for two at Big Reds and what a beautiful meal it was. Tomato soup followed by fillet steak on the stone, this steak melted in your mouth and cut like butter, don't waste your time at Don Torro or Faustinos steak house the guy that owns this place knows what he's doing, top quality fillet steak, nothing frozen...

Bit of a "go to" place for us. It's right opposite Vila marichique so very handy when you can't face the town. Ribs are excellent, but the rest of the menu is a bit thin on the ground for local dishes. Staff are great and the bill is never shocking. Give it a go!

Fun, great value, family friendly and great tasting food with a vibrant atmosphere. Situated between Praia da Rocha and Alvor it offers the type of value and experience which the resort establishments don't tend to deliver. This was our second time here and it was just as good as we remembered it. For the brave there is a Big Red... More

Went here with another couple and had a fabulous experience great service and very enjoyable evening on the outside terrace. 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 adults menu only adds to the range of... More
