Splendid!

Visited on a Saturday evening, in a group of eight golfers. We always come here for end of holiday meal. As always the service was superb, nice varied menu with typical Portugese dishes. Eight happy diners already looking forward to next year 😊

Have been returning to this restaurant year after year with my family since I can remember. I have tried nearly every item on the menu and nothing has disappointed, not one thing. A particular favourite is the steak Portuguese style. Friendly and welcoming service by all staff with a great ambiance inside and outside. The only fault is that it's... More

Went first time with friends who were regulars and enjoyed it so much we returned. Whether fish or meat all the dishes were good. As were the puddings and starters.

We eat here every January . The steaks and the avocado and prawn starter are brilliant if traditional. The service is excellent and welcoming . The price is very reasonable.

This restaurant has maintained it very high standards since day one! And that is quite an accomplishment. Rack of Lamb, filler with sauces, fresh fish etc. Outdoor patio dining in warmer season. Excellent service. Absolutely 100%.

This is a high class resturant with excellent food and ambience but at affordable prices. I had duck and my husband had fillet steak with wine and a pudding and just a little over 40 euros for 2. Excellent waiters and service. Well worth it. Great experience q

Our holidays on the Algarve are never complete without at least one visit to see Candido at Por do Sol. Excellent food and top class service.

Smart Portuguese restaurant with wonderful quality food and wine. Pleasant efficient staff. Indoor and outdoor dining options with a nice garden area useful for the children to play in during the warm months.

We always return to this Restaurant and have always found the food , service and hospitality excellent. Notwithstanding that I feel sure that the management would like to hear of any shortcomings as changes to custom and practice can sometimes mean that a Restaurant can soon lose its well deserved reputation . It may be a one off but we... More

Por do Sol is always on our list to visit when we go to Alvor every year. However, this year we were really lucky as we were staying just opposite at Vila Marachique. Candido and Rui always greet their guests like long lost friends and offer help and guidance when choosing from the menu. The dining room is simple elegance..beautiful... More
