Visited the Por Do Sol for the second time, and again the service and quality of food was excellent. The house special rack of lamb is worth the visit, and the flambé strawberries make you want to return again and again. Good selection of wines and a great log fire for the cool winter evenings. A really good restaurant well... More

Just visited tonight for a lovely meal. Staff are very friendly and speak very good English. Really nice traditional Portuguese restaurant. Can recommend fillet stroganoff & swordfish. Also try the Portuguese liqueur Beirao (very nice)! Was recommended to us by friends and we weren't disappointed.

We have been to Alvor a few times and always make sure our first and last meal and at least 2 other nights we eat here. It is absolutely amazing in all aspects. The food is wonderful and the staff are very attentive and also always on the ball, never waiting for a drink or ordering food. Por Do Sol... More

Por do Sol is a lovely restaurant in a quiet area on the outskirts of Alvor. It's stylish so The Blonde always feels like dressing up. It is far removed, both geographically and in clientele, from most of Alvor's eating places. The food is a mixture of international and Portuguese, served beautifully by the lovely staff who take pride in... More

Visited the restaurant several times during our holiday. The style and setting were very inviting with crisp clean table cloths and very welcoming staff. We sampled a variety of different items on the menu and were not disappointed we would not hesitate in recommending the Resturant

A very friendly experience, with good food and value. We were a group of 18 and we were seated in a nice corner of the restaurant - a little bit cramped, but perfectly OK. The service was great and the choice very good.

We've been to Alvor twice now and stayed near to Por do Sol, it was recommended as a good place to try by our apartment owner and I'm glad we did. Very old school service with linen and heavy cutlery etc but the food is faultless. Good selection of seafood and even managed to keep 2 kids entertained on the... More

It's hard to fault this restaurant, the menu might look old and may not have changed in years but why change it, if it's not broken don't fix it. It is one of the few places to do a cataplana for one. Tasty dish and great service.
