An anniversary treat

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.

Went here for an anniversary meal and it was fantastic. Have eaten here a few times before and it's so nice to visit for a great meal. We sat outside, which has been refurbished and looks great. The service is always good, never disappointed. I think the helpings seemed bigger this year, not that I am complaining! Well worth a... More

Had a couple of visits during this trip and both were excellent! The head waiter is a lovely guy who gives a warm welcome to everyone, food was amazing and nice atmosphere! Nice to see linen table wear instead of paper which seem common in most restaurants

Our first visit. Our friends had been before and were recognised by the genial proprietor. Fairly international menu. A big plus was the comfortable separate bar area in which to sit chatting and choosing. A popular restaurant with tourists and local expats.

Was quite disappointed with my monkfish main dish I got here. Very dry. My wife had the steak and was impressed with it however. Staff were very friendly. A lot of older couples dining here... not very lively. It is fine if you want a quiet dinner.
