We arrive here and were greeted by a very kind member of staff. We were seated and given the menu everything was expensive. The service was terrible we rarely seen a member of staff. The food was ok. We waited for staff to clear our table for a long time. My husband and daughter wanted to order a dessert, we... More

We went to this Restaurant, based on all the raving reviews here. And it certainly is a good restaurant, with a very nice staff. But some comments: First , the cuisine is NOT portugese, more French and Italian (Duck a l'Orange, Lasanga, Lamb with a mustart crust) The location is not great, not on a beautiful site or something, BUT...

Spent a lovely evening at Por do sol in July with my husband, daughter and partner. The food was first class, as was the service, by the very friendly waiters. We shall hopefully return there next year and highly recommend the restaurant to everyone who holidays in Alvor..

We ate here three times recently when we visited Praia da Rocha, the food was excellent as always. The highlight was the brilliant rack of lamb to share between two. Service is impeccable, which is quite a rarity nowadays.

cant really complain but something is lacking perhaps id prefer nice freshly cooked vegetables and not the ratatouille type that they serve no one other thing Despite spending a nice amount of money (we had three bottles of wine ) among four of us This restaurant doesn't offer a complimentary after dinner Port or whatever
