This is a beautiful restaurant serving international dishes to a very high standard, but by no means expensive by UK prices. We go 2-3 times during our holiday. The staff are really nice and remember you from the year before. Steaks and fish are lovely and the strawberries with cream to die for (we share!).

My wife and I first visited the Por Do Sol in Alvor upon recommendation from friends over 15 years ago. The friendly service from the waiters was immediately apparent, head waiter Candido is a delightful character who is still as enthusiastic about his work as on our first visit. The menu here has if at all, changed very little over... More

This place is a bit of a 70s throwback in style and the menu. Fantastic lamb chops, wonderful crepes cooked at the table. Well worth a visit.

Advocado and prawns for starter and flambe crepes for dessert served by good humoured waiters in black tie and DJ - you get the idea. But the quality of the food is really very good and has remained consistant over the years. The sharing lamb and beef dishes are particularly good - although another regular swears by "anything with prawns... More

Staff have been the same for years and now know us by name. Always have dinner here usually twice during our stay. Great food especially the Lamb in herbs or the Chateaubriand served for two. There are a selection of crepe desserts that are fab. Worth a visit.

Here is a restaurant that has withstood the test of time whether You choose it for lunch or dinner. Ample parking is a plus with interior ambiance pleasant and graceful. Good selection of Portugese and other dishes served in fine style in an enjoyable atmosphere. Perhaps a cut above in pricing, but well worth it.
