Fine Dining at it's Best

Warm welcoming, fantastic food, great wine, excellent service. Is there anymore that you would want from a restaurant. I look forward to going back year after year as they are consistently a wonderful restaurant, well worth every penny spent.

I have been visiting this restaurant for about 16 years. I can only say it remains very very good - in fact my wife and two sons went two consecutive evenings.

Fussy eaters, one not liking fish,one not liking much at all. So, for all round choice and reliable cooking, off we went to Por do Sol. I have been several times over the years and always enjoyed the ambience with nicely set tables, sparklycutlery and glasses and good service, not to speak of good food. Nothing had changed.We had various... More

This restaurant is probably the best that I went to on holiday in Alvor. The problem was what to chose from the menu we chose the rack of lamb for two people. A great choice. The most expensive meal on holiday but we'll worth the money.

We were treated to a meal here by our friends for our anniversary. It was such a beautiful atmosphere. The food was excellent and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful.

Back in Alvor after twelve months it was a real pleasure to visit our favourite restaurant the Por do Sol. The food and the service was extremely good as usual. We shared rack of lamb, which is carved at the table to add to the special experience. A flambé dessert was the perfect finishing touch.
